1999 Would be a YZ400. Either you listed the wrong year, or the wrong model. Unless you changed the headpipe, its not titanium, its steel.

I dont know of any ways to bring back the original silverish color.

You need to pretty much clean it after every ride though, otherwise you'll be back to square one. Steel wool (mild), and metal polish works best in my experience. :naughty:

My standard head pipe has the heat guard tabs ground off, smoothed with wet and dry sandpaper then polished on a buffing wheel. When you start the motor up it goes a purpley gold color. Looks awesome.
