If you're happy with it then leave it.

If you really want to cut it back then, once it's fully hardened, you need to wet sand out any orange peel using fine wet and dry (800 grit perhaps) then move to finer grades (1200 -2000) and finally polish  the surface with Farclea G3, Farclea Finishing Compound and finally Farclea Glaze (or similar products). It's time consuming. Especially if you're doing it by hand.

CMS have a reasonable reputation on exchanging faulty items.

If the finish is good I would leave it.. Mostly people will "colour sand" and buff which is to flatten off the clear using very fine wet and dry paper (with plenty of slightly soapy water).
This takes out most orange-peel and any bugs that might have landed in the drying clear coat.
You can then buff it up using cutting compound and then finish polishing...
It really all depends on how many coats of clear you applied as well.. if only 1 or 2 then you run the risk of rubbing through the clear and having to start all over again.
Not an exciting prospect...
I agree with waiting a while to do anything though... single pak clear takes quite a while to fully harden.. on the surface it may feel hard but it will still be gassing out from underneath as it relies on the solvents to "gas out" for it to fully harden.
Throw some pics up.. sounds like a nice paint job.

I suspect they come from exactly the same supplier and so who sells them is irrelevant!

If it is 1k lacquer then leave at least a couple of months before any type of machine polish

After that time if it is needed then you can polish to refine the finish if needed

Are these pipes the same as sold by DSS.  At some stage I would like to get a set for my cb550k3.
I would suspect so ... I went with cmnsl as the exchange at the time made them cheaper - I may rue that decision :(
