Industrial size ultrasonic cleaner. Venturi Moto near me bought this industrial size cleaner, they work on and restore vintage motorcycles. They do some great work as does the cleaner.

Anyone else experiencing this with the early silver frames? If you have, have you had luck getting / rubbing it off? I have pondererd ways to go about trying to get it off of mine but at the same time I don't want to make it worse. I'm tempted to paint the rear end of the frame. So, Anyone???

P.S. I'll try to post some pics later.
If the paint is discolored on your silver frame try rubbing with a clay bar. I like the 3M product at many auto parts stores. I'm not sure how they work, but man they do work. They are great for removing any foreign material on the paint surface, even unwanted paint like over spray. Much easier on paint surfaces than solvents and works better as well. Many mild abrasive preps for buffing out scratches on plastic wind screens also work on paint. If your frame paint is also scuffed, try a scratch remover using hand buffing.

Thanks for the lead!
Called Engle Motors this morning and talked to Chuck in the parts dept.
I think he said I got the last one - but I may not have heard him correctly.
Heading up to D 2 D in June and I didn't want to go without a center stand.
My dealer said it would be July before they got them in - so it's great to have found one!

I'm glad it worked out. As I said previously, they won't last long so hurry up and call.

Worked on the cycle a little today. I installed this a little mud guard on the back of the swing arm. What a complete pain in the ass it was. There was zero room in the battery area to get the nuts and washers on. I got it done though. It will be so nice not to have all of the mud and crap up on the spring! It looks off center but its not. The spring is actually a little off center...

don't mind the mud and crappy garage pic

If you had trimmed it so that it sat up, into that cut out the nuts would have been a lot easier to get on.

I did trim it as much as I wanted. Your guard looks longer than mine. I was going to mount it higher but I didn't want the bottom to be any higher than it is.

Yes, it's the Acerbis universal.

And yes, yours looks like it might catch on the rib that runs around the middle of the swing arm if you'd mounted it higher.

On a side note of installation. I put a piece of velcro on the swingarm. That way the mud flap does not have contact with swingarm (causing wear on the inside of the swingarm).
