Starting a new thread for my top front engine mounting efforts.
Today drilled two tiny 1.8mm holes either side, to help get penetrating oil into the fused allly block and steel through bolt, with a small hand-cranked craft drill, it went in like knife through butter.
This is where I am then, letting it soak in PG (not Tips).
tea is oot so … laters, any advice sympathy etc. welcomed.May 10, 2017 at 12:05 am #3778gstamParticipant
Quick update on this, I abandoned the effort, that bolt ain’t shifting.
I’ll continue to douse it with penetrating oil for a bit, but have been doing so really since I got the bike years ago and became aware of the likelihood of it being seized. Might instead smear some chemical metal on the little holes.
Carried on with spraying the engine cover plan but with the engine-bars in place.
Rubbed right down to the metal some flaky bits, lightly scuffed the the rest with 300 grit, then 800, cleaned with lighter fuel, masked and went for it first with a few coats of primer (Lidl stuff Adhesion Primer), flatted the earliest coat a little, but not the last primer coat before the colour coats; Lidl stuff again Rim Paint (for wheels).
It is certainly an improvement (see Before pictures in the New Forum thread).
I painted up to the silver circle on the Suzuki emblem, didn’t fancy trying to peel it off without mangling it. Will probably fill in the scratches on that emblem, maybe just use a black marker pen and spray some clear lacquer over it.

Nice one glad to see your project, im hoping to get another project soon!
The front bolt i drilled out. Took some balls because go in on an angle and youll do more damage.
Saw the edges off where the middle meets the spacers and then dril from there.
Looking forward to more updates!July 30, 2017 at 2:20 am #4145CharlesSaipsLMParticipant
