Taking the rocker covers off the Tuono, the front one has 1 bolt that sits right behind the radiator so it’s subject to an awful lot of road crud. It’s a 4mm allen head and I could already feel it was rusty before I started.
So I think to myself, this is going to round off for sure so I’ll plan ahead and order a new bolt (£20 original part) so I’m ready for reassembly.
Took the rocker cover off today and the paint is flaking off a lot. Take a dremel & wire brush to it, remove all the flaking and the corrosion underneath and that’s a fair amount of pitting
Had a look on ebay, can get a rocker cover for £40 with perfect paint and 5 spare bolts.
Just wanted to vent. Nothing to see here, move along.
