I had the bike covered for 4 days, and it rained 2 of those days. Now I see rust on the rear brake rotor that I don't remember seeing before. What is the best way to safely remove the rust?

hopefully if it's just the area the pads rub - then give her a ride out and all will be well - i get it on mine on the front rotor, as she lives out under a cover that leaves the wheel slightly exposed and damp gets to the iron if left for even a few days - it's my excuse for getting out and about even in the winter... 'gotta give the rotors a shine luv wont be long......

I agree, that you probably just need to use it a bit, and all will be well. I've even noticed this on my car -- rotors sometimes turn a gold rust color immediately after washing. Take it for a short drive, and it's all good.

This condition requires experience and high levels of hardware knowledge. For the price of airfare I'll fly over and de-rust them for you. It'll only take me a couple hours . . . or maybe a long day . . . honest . . .
You get a good laugh at my lack of mechanical knowledge!

[always knewAZ wanted a midnite...any excuse lol] - it's me goading AZ on your thread, 'sorry for that'.. but AZ's ment to be wrenching this winter -he hasloads of mods to do, and he promised proper pics of the work [the L&M was good but we need more!! or i'll turn the telly on] - seriously...it is scary how fast rust can appear on untreated iron, and then the rotor bolts start to stain...wish i'd got stainless ones like i had on the bandit

AZ knows I'm joking, he gives me good advice and seems to always put his 2cents in on any topic he's got info about. Plus he wants a Midnight.
