I dunno... I must be exhausted or something but for some reason even though this thread is only 2 entries long it has me laughing hysterically. :rofl:

I have not seen any signs of corrosion on any of my shiny bits... but I'm here in the dry, hot, heat where death usually precedes oxidation.

To get this back on topic.......

I have not noticed any corrosion, but then I have not had it out in the rain much.
The only place I have noticed anything like that is on the washer where the clutch hose meets the resevoir.
Yeah, I know it is copper, but it is "dirtier" than the one on the brake resevoir.

C'mon Chewy... Sarge was just trying to clarify so you'd get some help with your question. I was tired and in a giddy mood when I read the post and response and for some unknown reason it struck me as sidesplittingly funny. You have to admit, before you made your edits it looked like you had been typing with your feet.

As far as your corrosion issue is concerned... do you live seaside? Do you store your bike outdoors? Does your area get much morning dew (not the drink, the atmospheric byproduct)?

Regards,

To answer the original question, no. Of course the bike is stored in the garage on the lift and is heated in the winter. I also don't ride it with salt on the road and I always use forced air to dry it after a wash.

Not on mine yet and it's been in the rain about 1/2 the time
since I've had it. I borrowed an 07AW for a few days from my
dealer before I picked up the DX and it had really bad rust
marks on the exhaust.

Karl Scott, Avante and pjhollis are in your part of the country.
