just a heads up for impatient folks like myself...
Wednesday night I changed out all of the rocker box gaskets on the scooter. Well, let's just say the rear one took me two tries(guess they arn't $hittin about correct side up!). Anywho, had a little leakage going down the highway on the test run.
Had been planning to ride with a buddy after work last night and needed to wash up the oil(don't really care for the smell of the residue[:'(]). Soooo, started washing the scooter and thought, " hey there dumba$$, ya got degreaser in the house.... just a little squirt..".
HOKEY $HIT!!! My polished alumn went from slightly duller than chrome(I polish the alumn non-stop seems like, next time a custom for sure!)to looking like someone dumped a 5 gallon bucket of milk ona hot engine!!! WTF!!!!
Lesson learned... citrus cleaner degreaser =good, that crap they sell in a purple bottle = BAD.
Looks like this evening after dark is going to consist of a 12pack, couple rags, bottle of profesional v40 cleaner, nanowax, and some damn sore fingers....
did I mention a twelve pack?!?!?
