Have a 84 GL1200I .. exhaust has a fair amount of surface rust..
Any thoughts on sanding and painting with high temp paint?

If you are talking about the exhaust pipes themselves my opinion would be to sand them just enough to knock off the loose crumbleys and paint 'em.

If you are talking about the chrome exhaust pipe covers/shields I'd look into getting them re-chromed if they can't be brightened back up with SOS pads and aluminum foil.

Yes...pipes themselves. Don't have sheilds on them.
