hey guys ,
dis is just the topic i was lookin for . . .
With the rains comin in hard , maintaining ma ride is a BIG problem . .
but cant push it into the garage cos its ma only ride .

even without the rains , the chrome on my bike , mostly the headlamp and the blinkers are gettin screwed bigtime . . greenish layer cover it up . . washing it with a polish helps a little bit but the majority of the dirty stuff still remains . .

was looking for somethin to remove those stains ans also to prevent the rusting of the other parts . . for example , the bolts screwing the tankshot onto the tank , all major bolts , the wheels all hav started rusting up a bit , ,

this is real bad , guys . . considering that the bike is hardly 10 months old . . i was out looking for something to remove those stains but still havnt managed to get anything

GTO , if u could get the brandname and some other info on that spray you were talking about , it would be a great help for many of us . .

im also using a waterproof ( supposedly ) cover for my bike . . hope it turns out good
will follow the tips . .

keep up the good work

hit me back

Mostly use the Qualis or the Swift. Will use the bike too when it isnt raining.

I have heard of dupont vehicle covers which seems to be water proof. The cost must be on the higher side.

V12, Now I know how much you love your bikes.................. Intense love. No wonder you bullet looks like its just come from the showroom

Now that is enterprising! Like they say necessity is the mother of invention. I can relate to the guy who has to travel on his bike whether it rains or not.

BTW where exactly on teh NH 47 was this pic taken?

I know it is an old thread, but Monsoon has hit Kerala and will reach Maharashtra anytime soon. Has anyone tried anti-rust spray? I have heard about ACF 50 anti corrosive spray. How is it? Does it work? Where do I get it from? I have tried many sites, but they supply it only to EU, Aus and UK? Help me out guys!!!

i sprayed WD40 on my bike last year.
It worked well, my bike Standard 350 was new so I did not see any rust after monsoon.
Has any tried Dinitrol coating ? its expensive.
i got it done on the engine and chassis of my car very minimal signs of rust.
the car is 2004 Hyundai Santro
