The stock paintjob strips off down to the grey primer with metholated spirits (denatured alcohol, ethanol with a dash of methanol and purple dye) once you have scuffed off the clear coat. I'm guessing petrol would do the same :prob: nice one Yamaha.

Good to get her out in the sun and spot the blemishes. Final coat tonight and then fresh decals, check electrics and torque stuff up to spec.

Next job is a custom belly pan. I have a whole roll of fibreglass and a litre of resin. ;)
