Rusting Mild Steel Brackets
After putting 16 000 KM on the 650 I can notice rust inside the fairing bracket. It is visibly seen in front of the steering head. Motorcycle finishes have vastly improved, so why can't they spray the inside of the tubing. I just find it annoying. Will probably spray that part of the braket.
Also at the bottom of the headstock is a mild steel bushing which should have oil rubbed on it to stop the oxidizing. I try to take care of my DL.
