Yeah I get made fun of a lot for my pipe cause its full of marks and things that melted to it.
At first I would get the pipe really hot and then putt goo gone on it or any patrolium based product. and then let it sit for 5 mins then rub it with a rag. And repeat,and repeat, and repeat. But a few months ago I just gave up on it.
I'm going to get a TI after market pipe and then will be much cooler. Our pipe is so hot because it is stainless stell and because it has a catolytic converter in it. The aftermarket pipe dont have cats.

Petrol will take melted crap of your exhaust system no sweat.

Are you sure the CAT is in the muffler?? When you replace your can you would remove your CAT too and that would chuck tuning and emmisions out the window.

No you wouldn't have to rejet it after taking the cat off cause the cat is in the can and you can get rid of the original can with that cat in it by just buying a slip on. And no slip-ons require you to re jet or get a PC. All the cat is, is a chemical reaction the converts carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide. They may back opposite. But all it really is is a chemical reaction and a byresult of the conversion of gas is heat.

Technically no full systems require a rejet. All systems are designed to run on stock carbs or fuel injection. It just makes more sense to rejet because the bike would be way too lean & eventually lead to detonation.

The cat is in the can...the KLEEN valves are around the engine.

The stock exhaust can gets incredibly hot (due to the catalytic converter in it). It discolors due to the high heat even if you don't melt anything to it. So far mine is scarred by burned boots, burned leathers, and a bit of skin.

Most manufacturers state right in their literature that rejetting or remapping the fuel system is highly recommended when installing their full exhaust systems.
