    Terrible corrosion on the engine casing and fly wheel of a F650CS I've just purchased. Does anyone know if the RH Side engine caing comes off and if so is the best way to sort this to have sand blasted and re-coated? cheers

    I was wondering if anyone else had the same problems as me. My 2005 Dakar has a gold finish on the exhaust but it seems to have developed some heavy duty brown corrosion. If you had a similar problem, could you let me know how you solved it ? :?

    Would it be worth me taking some wire-wool or a wire brush in a drill to my wheels to give it a brushed effect or would this wreck them? What have others done with theirs?

    Is there any way to stop my brake disk(s) accumulating corrosion? It's mostly on my relatively new rear disk (cast iron from M'works), which - as soon as not used for a day or so in this damp weather - shows signs of the stuff. I've tried brake cleaner, which only takes of the dust from the...
