Default Isn't vinegar great!

Finally got the clutch slave cylinder off my VT700, one of the bolts was really tight in there after 25 years of corrosion, a spanner welded on and a drop of cheap vinegar soon moved that..the piston was in solid..more vinegar and that came out and the inside of the cylinder was covered with thick corrosion, five minutes with a cheap tesco scouring sponge and a tooth brush with vinegar and it is spotless.

I'm having fish and chips tonight..

John.

Yeah.. got to admit, soaking the slave cylinder for a couple of hours had that effect on me too..but it was well worth it, got rid of all the corrosion..I thought it was past saving..
