yeah i started to notice the rubber boots on a few connections starting to deteriorate to the point that I really should look into replacing them...the battery boots are shot but still in place and the top of the carb has a bit of a crack/ tear at the opening where the throttle cable enters...while i am at it the starter connection could use a update..as u can c the older machines have the same problems..be Nice if cmw had a booty replacement kit...
I've had to replace a number of cracked rubber bits and now use a light coat of silicon grease to help preserve them. Other wires have been protected with off cuts of rubber hose where necessary and a bit of rerouting of looms had helped to reduce tension on connectors and the risk of rubbing.
How's your bike for rust Singh? I mean apart from the usual suspects, how's the frame holding out? I have paint lifting off mine in a couple of places.I guess for those of us in damp climates, a good deal of TLC is going to be necessary to keep on top of it. But the bloody wiring ought not to be tiring so soon!

what about using some Cathodic protection to prevent rust?....Installing an Anode on the frame may prevent rust.
I guess I can search but what is ACF 50?Silicone spray or even something like armour all will help the wiring as well.
