I have to go to the store for a flower pot today (I was thinking of cutting up the recycling bin...no..no...bad krahe), I was looking (ok oggling...) the bike the other day when I noticed a buildup of fine sediment on the forward side of the crossover exhaust header just under the oil cooler. Apparently the front wheel throws really fine grit on the exhaust header where it bakes on looking like a large patch of rust. I also noticed a single spoke on the front wheel that had rust near the rim. An hour later and turtle wax, chrome polish, and armor all and everything looked fine except for the rusty spoke. I plan to block the area under the oil cooler between the frame so I dont get all that sand and grit all over the engine, its an issue living in the middle of the desert.
