Dealing with rust/pitting
I bought a second hand 2006 daytona a few months or so ago.
It only had 1000 miles on the clock and I got it for a steal. The Only thing wrong with it is that it was showing signs of rust/pitting in places.
Ive since replaced rusted bolts and washers etc, now I need tackle the pitting on the engine, footrests, discs and a bit of rust at the front left fork leg.
Anyone else had problems with rust/pitting. How did you get rid of it? Whats the do's and donts.
I plan to just use some autosol and get what I can off, then acf-50 the whole bike to solve the problem. It could be that the previous owner never kept in a garage. He put it in a huge carrier bag that couldnt breath and caused it more harm than good.
