Bug guts/splatter and paint - corrosion ?
Man, fook bugs, these things have evolved into Giger's Aliens or something : Was cleaning my bike today after a short trip i took the other day and i noticed that as soon as i removed the dead bugs from my bikini fairing, the yellow-ish residue/spots just wouldn't budge from the plastic housing even after washing it - thank God it didn't corrode the sides of my tank (had dead bugs/splatter over there too).
So, i take it that bug guts/residue/splatter is corrosive when it comes to paint, eh ? Here's my question though gents : does it behave the same on every kind o paint ? My bike has a matte white (pearl white) finish - are bug guts still corrosive with - say - normal finishes/paint that have a hard clear coat (on top of the color) ?
Can something be done about it and also, any ways to prevent this ?
Kinda funny, had the bike for 5 years, toured many times on it, performed bug genocide(s) many times before but...this is the 1st time i noticed damage on my paint, what the heck...
Thanks in advance gents
