Rust treatment

Post  JohnW on Fri 12 Jan - 22:58

In view of the dire state of the T80 featured in this thread http://yamahatownmatet80.forumotion.co.uk/t1042-a-total-rust-bucket  its advisable to remove the petrol tank and coat the inside of the frame particularly around the top shock absorber mounting points with Waxoyl https://www.hammerite.co.uk/product/waxoyl/ or similar rust treatment. Also lower down remove the battery holder and Waxoyl the lower section. These areas are prone to rusting from inside, Waxoyl will stop the rust taking hold.
Just done my bike, there was a lot of surface rust in there.
