Considering the purchase of a V-Strom 650 or a Kawasaki Versys. In reading posts on both, I read several posts concerning possible early rust issues with the Versys where folks are noticing rust build-up on recently purchased units. My questions for the V-Strom owners are:
Have you noticed any issues with rust that seem out of the ordinary?
How do you counter the effects that lead to or add to current rust build-up?
Being a predominantly dirt bike rider for the last several years, I was used to just washing down the bike with a hose and then oiling / greasing chains, component bolts / fittings, etc.
