Like the look of the swingarm. Just a simple polish?
Yes, 3 grits of sandpaper and some alu polish paste to finish. Done by hand with the swingarm attached.

Cleaned and lubed up the chain, then proceeded to give ol' Bib a beating on my Pilot Powers out on Skaggs Springs Road.

Hi guys, been a while.

Been a while because I have ashamedly not ridden the Duc much. A few new scooters have entered the picture since I got it, and the new kids seem to get all the attention for some reason.

So I vowed to ride the damn thing more. I rode it to work this week (still running and sounding fantastic), and decided I really wanted to do something about the mirrors. In a commute environment, I really like to know what's going on around me.

Just got in from the garage, inspected/checked the belt tension to clear my conscience, and installed these mirrors from Moto Science. Straight bolt-up (post spacing identical), they extend out just a bit further than the stockers on extension blocks, and man, what a difference! Perfect view aft at a glance, no more bobbing and weaving. I know some probably won't like they aesthetics, but I think they look great. Moreover, they actually work.

I took the tank off my trusty 2002 750 Sport and took it over to GTL Advantage (aka T. Markus) for a cleaning and coating.

SoCalDuc, it may be worth trying Oxalic acid before going to the expense of coating, much cheaper and easier. Your rust doesn't seem too bad from the pics.
Mine had a bad case of surface rust and now, after a twelve hour soak it's as per att. pic.

Hi, Grrss;

I was indeed going to do my own tank, however, it was actually rusted through on the bottom (plus no time with work keeping me busy), thus it went off to a professional.

Fitted billet alloy clip ons.
They sit a bit less forward than the stock nasty steel bars, maybe an inch? Anyway, definitely an improvement.

Cheers.
