Header staining, rust

Just a thought. How many of us who have rusty headers, use a cover on their Bobber?

Pics? How much rust are we talking about here? I haven't taken delivery of my Bobber yet (Spring is almost here!!), but I definitely want to make sure I'm doing my best to mitigate any issues.

No rust here, ceramic coating does the trick!

Cheque - I park outside - use blanket/cover, Oxford cover too - only rust issue after 8 months is tiny bit at back of mirrors where mirror connection meets bracket arm, also tiny bit on one spoke/nipple connection. No header rust noted so far.

It's just that some of us have staining/rust on the headers. I wondered if it could be where the cover is in contact with the headers.

Yes, decided to have it done because a: the headers were always a stained mess after a long ride, b: finding out the triumph black headers were powdercoated (which was my first option).

Here a video to help keep your Bobber’s exhausts looking spick ’n’ span


And here’s one that relates to blueing that’s not an issue on the Bobber as the exhaust are double skinned but the general polishing advice is good.


I hope that helps?
