Black coating on the swingarm and frame plates?

Hi There,

On the Brutales with the back swingarm... (and F4's for that matter), there is a coating that looks almost "rubber'ish", e.g. its got a texture to it.. anyone know what it is?

Simon

Cheers, Simon

it is shitty, hard to clean and scuffs really easy.... that's all I can disclose.

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead

I keep mine clean and pristine using Graphite. Now I don't think our cousins across the pond will know about this bit in years gone by our grannies used to use black lead to keep the fire grate clean and shiny. To stop them dropping dead with lead poisoning the health and safety people and probably the eu stopped them using it so they changed to graphite. It comes in a tube costs about 3 ($5usd) and should be in most DIY stores. Stays on under normal washing (soap) but degreasant fetches it off

Thanks for the tip tricky!

But im acually wanting to know what the actual coating is on the black swingarm, rather than how to clean it.
