brown hue on satos!

Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone has had a brownish color hue forming on their Sato exhaust cans? Im thinking its from the heat but its only happening on one side. Maybe the packing was done incorrectly? Its strange because usually the metal turns bluish over time when getting hot I thought. I have pics of the abnormality. Is there any kind of cleaning agent recommendations? Anything helps thanks.

That would be a developing hot spot. Ti cans so no real issue... But the packing is starting to fail.
Right side always goes first.

I concur. Your packing is disintegrating and causing the hot spots.

Being that You are in californication (California).. I'd take the cans off the bike, drive a cage to D.Kyle Racing and see Ole' LDH...
