Carbon fiber frame guards and rust?

Recommended Posts

along with my handguards, i just got carbon fiber frame guards to protect that area that gets worn away by my boots. Its the area taht usually is bare metal after a couple of rides. Before i install these guards, should i repaint the area thats bare metal to stop it from rusting? the area is already gettin rust but i keep getting it off. If i put the guards on, i wont be accessing that area very often. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. thanks

There are primers that you an get that neutralize rust that is already present. SInce the area will be covered it does not need to be painted "Yamaha Blue" as long as your frame guards cover the entire area. So I would tape off the areas and spray them with a few coats of rust neutralizing primer. Then put on your frame guards.
