Use detergent and a scotchbrite pad.

just get a wet rag (like a sock) and loop it around the headpipe and pull each side of the rag like your buffing a shoe. :)

Works for me.

Let it Idle for about 10 minutes, take your tounge and lick the pipe. :D After that you won't care what it looks like :D :) :D :D :D
