Thank you OC for the information/explanation. The coolant leak from the weep hole does appear to stop when the bike is in more regular use. It has only been a very small amount anyway and learning more about the situation has eased my concerns.

Mine is now doing its 12th winter and the finish has stood up well, I use ACF50 and the only corrosion has been on the brake calipers where I can’t apply it. In the last year or two I have had some flaking paint on the underside of subframe and the water pipe on the left side of the engine. Make sure you get a good covering of acf50 behind the radiator shrouds and as that area takes a lot of road spray.

Have you got the extension to the front mud guard fitted ??---Very handy to keep the spray off the engine.

For those of you that ride all year in all weathers, does the CB show much wear and tear? I get a bit frustrated with the lack of riding this time of year but i’ve found road salt a bit of an issue back in the day. The cold i can cope with but i’m concerned about the winter weather and it’s affect on the bike. Be interested to know how others view the situation?
Unless your Anal it will end up looking a mess.Follow what is said on previous comments and you will be ok.And you can put ACF50 on your calipers.Just don't slabber it everywhere

Hope you are still OK. This forum has changed beyond belief. Don't know if anybody checks it. They have even got LARDY as a member of ADMIN when he hasn't been on the site for years.
Crazy or what ??
