Title: CRF250L rust repair
Post by: MGV on September 01, 2018, 03:46:21 pm
Hi all, hope this is the right place to post?

I have a 2015 250L (11000km). Showing some signs of rust at stress points like footpeg and engine mount welds. Any tips on how to fix this before itís too late?

Spray it wurth rust off leave it for a day or two then clean it up with thinners and touch up with the closest match silver spraycan paint.
Builders wearhouse sell spraypaint its about R200 but the work well.
Spray a bit in the in the spraycan lid and apply with a small brush or earbud

Thanks for the input! Will stop at Builders after work. Have also managed to get the code of the frame paint, so hoping Cape Auto Paints can help me out as I have a larger area on flat side of frame where mx boot has rubbed off all the paint. Planning on removing fairings this weekend and inspect rest of the frame,and also fix up the rust on the header and repaint with heat resistant paint.

otherwise just treat with ACF50 - it wont fix it, and it wont cover it up - but it should prevent it from getting much worse

How about using something like rust stop and then touching up with silver with a small brush ?
