I neglected it so I pay the price.


After last using the bike before parking it up nearly 2 years ago I can't have cleaned it very well under the swingarm, behind those brackets clamping the rear brake pipe to the swingarm......


A little scrape at what appeared to be solid white surface corrosion and ....woops


Lucky for me I found a cheap replacement in excellent condition, and I doubt an MOT tester would have spotted it, unless they're very keen....who knows ?


Keep it clean gents ;)
