When you say 'the paint might not be good enough' and 'repaint it', why? It isn't painted in the first place. At least mine isn't. It is just 'coated' in some way.

It might have been caused by the incautious use of a rear paddock stand; differential metals in contact over time, especially if you are not the original owner.

It can't be more than slight surface corrosion. I'd just give it a light rub down and an occasional squirt of WD.

Actually, I wouldn't, I'd ignore it  8)

And to be fair, it wasn't advertised as a vernier, merely a digital caliper...

I imagine it was more of an auto-correct than a typo...either way it's a load of pollocks  8)

Yes, they had quite a selection of good stuff. More of the combination ratchet spaniards I got last time they were in.

I just went in for a roll of Gorilla Tape and there it was. Aanyway, spending money on delivery is a hanging crime around here.

...and then they knock on your door because they made notes of colour of clothing etc, and compared it with the plates of all the law-abiding types who ride that road every day and 'your nicked'  ::)

Just so we don't confuse any newbies, the picture of the blue beauty is to show the tank bag and NOT the low seat.

The seat fitted to the K12S in the piccie is the normal/high seat.

Brian (who is surprised David, who is not a small chap, needed the low seat  8) )

...and mine's probably even older. I must have bought it in about 1970 and it will probably outlast me.

Although the dog-bone linkage is working in a harsh environment with spray etc, it isn't going 'much' in the way of hard work; it isnt' very high pressure, it isn't very hot, it isn't moving very fast (well 170'ish perhaps  ::) ) and the LM is ideal.

Brian (who never understood why a high melting point grease is labelled LM  8) )

See, I told you someone with more patience would be along shortly. Thanks Tom, now they have no excuse.

And the very thought of dry needle roller bearings sends squeaks and shivers up my spine. Literally, eventually  :o

Why have you got the name on the top of your head  ::)

Just spray it with WD40.

It won't do any good and if you get it on the rear tyre it might kill you but with your self-confessed mechanical skills... ::)

Someone with more patience will be along shortly to explain.
