So November is here and it can’t be long until the dreaded winter salt season comes around again. My big worry is the exhausts, which are already showing signs of corrosion after a summer and autumn of allweather riding. If the Yamaha is going to face up to the full force of winter, I may have to consider getting busy with some high-temperature exhaust paint – not a big job but non-stainless systems do suffer if you don’t look after them. The Yamaha’s other metal fixtures and fittings can easily be protected with Scottoiler FS365 or a can of ACF50, both of which I have deployed before with good results but if you are using the Scottoiler product, be aware you will have to re-apply it regularly.
Winter salt may prove problematic
