I use a product called Sled Brite Belly Pan Cleaner. It is actually for my snowmobile belly pan. The first time I used it, the black just ran off of my transom. I use the stuff for cleaning anything greasy or exhaust carbon. It works great and it doesn't screw up the gel coat.

I use Castrol Superclean mixed 50/50 with water and it seems to work well. Some other folks have had the ECM's reprogrammed (on 496's) which supposedly helps with the soot build-up.

I noticed that many of you say waxing helps. My transom seems to get more soot build-up right after I wax it. Maybe it's the wax or maybe I'm just not getting it all buffed off??

Try Roll Off. Spray it on, wait a couple minutes, then wash off.

I would think it would burn cleaner

Maybe that is why mine is so dirty, because all I run is 90+
Run the lowest octane recommended. Higher octanes ignite at higher temperatures. This keeps them from igniting and causing preignition and detonation due to high temps in the cylinders.
A higher octane fuel will not burn as completely as a lower octane fuel. You will actually lose power running higher octanes than needed.

As for cleaning any exhaust residue. Simple Green!!!
