Absolutely Wounded

Squeaky back brake? Hard to control at 30mph/40kph?

Absolutely Wounded

Post by retardonamotard » Fri May 13, 2016 8:59 am

Had the bike in at my LBS the other day for the MOT and it looks like its been left out all day in the pouring rain.

Ive managed to autosol the rusty bolt heads but cant get the heavy condensation out of the clocks. It dissappears temporarily when heating it with the hairdryer but re appears after 5 mins of cooling down. Any ideas as to how I can cure the condensation?

Try a thin coat of ACF50 on your bolt heads, will keep them rust free for ages.
I can't give any advice regarding the clocks. My SMR has sat in the rain for a couple of days this week outside the office and I've not had a single issue.

Remove the clocks, take the covers off, cleaned up and leave in a warm place like the airing cupboard for 24hrs.

Check the seal before fitting back together.
