Well at a guess the blueing has probably got several contributors engine running too weak a mixture, Idle speed too high, things to bear in mind get carb air/fuel mixture right, adjust idle speed as slow as is reasonable, don't keep blipping the throttle when stationary don't leave bike idling for long periods. the worst offender is poorly adjusted carb, as regards blipping the throttle & idle speed, in motion air over the pipe helps to reduce heat but sods law metal that gets hot changes colour chrome goes blue stainless goes gold, so at best you can slow the process but you wont stop it alternatively hide it A.F.I.K (another thing we used to bind the pipe close to manifold with thin copper wire to act as a heat sink pulling some extra heat from the chrome helping to reduce bluing)
Thank you for your support...
