All- Riding a 2007 wee with 35k miles. Engine case paint is peeling, right side, water pump cover and lower engine case. Flaking off and exposing oxidized Al below. Not really looking forward to stripping and repainting all this kit. Thoughts are to brush off the flaking paint with a wire brush all the way back to solid paint and hit it with clear coat to prevent further intrusion of O2/H2O.

Thoughts? Better approach? Warnings?

Already searched the forums for similar subjects and found nothing but 2 references in the maintenance section on which Strom is your favorite......

Cheers!

Could you post a pic? I've actually never heard of this happening, and my own wee has been through seven northeast winters. It has some spots but no flaking.
