Guys, last spring when I woke my mv from her winter slumber I was horrified to find that the battery had leaked and stained the swing arm. I cleaned it all up and it was t too bad. Replaced the battery with a proper sealed battery suited to laying on its side. This spring when I woke her up I found it was a lot worse. Looks like some acid was left in there somewhere! Gonna have to replace it or repaint it. Anybody got a perfect swing arm they'd be willing to sell? Or does anyone know how to paint match? Thanks in advance. Dave

You should be able to paint it. Go to online store Bikepaintcolours...

If you need I have a swing arm here in UK ...But you don't really need that. imho

Cleaning battery acid up requires neutralizing base chemicals not just washing. Baking soda is one, but auto stores have aerosol battery terminal cleaners that work even better.
Joe is right, take it off and head to your local quality auto body repair. They should be able to color match and make it look good as new.
While you have it apart you can find all the other spots that got corroded too!
