    Dear all,

    Just been scrubbing my bike and to my horror! I have found pitted lower front fork stanchions both sides at the same height as the discs! I am assuming from stones chucked by the discs! I am astounded on a 2 year old bike with only 9000 miles on the clock, tbh the rest of the bike is looking shabby as well, unfortunately it gets ridden all weathers! In the UK. My rear rack has rusted, the center stand center bar has rusted, front disc mounting ring rusted, rear disc rusted, engine finish flaked off at water pump. I love the bike but really not impressed with the finish, also my black plastics have faded gone grey, it sits outside of work all day! I mean cmon! It's northern Europe, my previous Suzuki gsxs1000f was ten times better for finish and 3k cheaper!!! With 16k on the clock!
