CBF Spring Clean - Part#1

Now that the FJ is back on the road it gives me an opportunity to do some maintenance on the CBF. It was used exclusively over the last 6 months and 6,000 miles and was showing some deterioration from the ravages of winter.

The CBF before the spring cleaning

The silencer of the "winter exhaust" was painted with heat proof paint and had this has held up well. I gave it another coat

The engine bars were pretty rusty. They were cleaned and given a coat of zinc primer then a coat of gloss black.

Components re-sprayed.

The wheels got a good clean and some paint was touched up. I re-sprayed the disc centre with heat proof paint.

The fork legs had some stone chips so I re-sprayed them.

The CBF stripped.
