Foookin Rust !
« on: July 08, 2009, 10:38:58 PM »
Got home tonight from work and found that my left hand was splattered with orange water, rusty water. It had come out of the left hand switch unit. I am not going to clean it off as the dealer can have a look at it when it goes in for 4k service.
Has anyone else had the same problem.
I assume it has been caused by the recent heavy rain getting into the unit whilst on the side stand.

I got a bit of rusty muck coming out of where the levers on the handlebars are but i guess if i leave it out in the rain for 3 days then its bound to happen..as long as the sucker starts im happy.. :la:

Just had a 4000 mile service and the mechanic had a look. Took the switch housing off and no sign of corrosion just a small orange stain at the bottom of the housing - weird !
