    Rust on pivots - Mojo SL..

    So had my Special Blend for just over 2 months now and about 3 weeks ago noticed some rust in the pivot bushings...



    So contacted my dealer who I got the bike from, he contacted the UK distributor who came back saying that its because we live near the sea...

    Personally I don't think this is acceptable - anyone else had this?

    Hans - could you comment please?

    Thanks

    I had not seen that before but our engineer has and he says that during the pressing in of the bearings a bit of steel from the press tool stays in the bore and turns to rust in the right conditions. It is cosmetic and can be removed with scotch bright and prevented with a slight coating of grease. If it's hard to deal with or comes back let us know and we'll take care of it.
