I had the bike out today and noticed how bad the bottoms of my fork tubes are discolored.
It looks almost like a yellowish layer of scum, but it is glossy. I couldn't find any previous posts about this. Anyone else have the same problem? Does anyone know how to fix this?? Thanks!
I believe Kawasaki applied a clearcoat over the lower forks to preserve the metal and keep it from dulling or corroding. To fix you will need to strip off the old clearcoat and apply new. Or as some have done, paint them black or paint to match the tank.
Mine have some yellowing as well. I plan to paint them when I repaint the tank and fenders.
