Detailed the gas task and underneath the gas tank, frame and cable areas, removing 15 years of dirt. Looks brand new under there now. Found rust on the gas tank and will hit it with POR-15 in the clear version. Added some other small bits.

I like the way your going through the bike with a fine tooth comb. You would be the one I would like to buy a used bike from. Nice work. wink

Hey Garry, the bikes really looking great already. I'm a little jealous! Where did you get the service manual from and how much if you don't mind? I'd really like a solid copy, pdf doesn't compare!

Thanks guys for all the comments. I love doing this. Its like restoring an old car, bringing it back to new.

As far as the manual, the only place I could find one is https://www.yamahapubs.com and it was $100.

POR-15 is great. I am going over all the seams in the frame that have rust, as well as on the gas tank.
