Rusty Cat

Just wondering if anyone else has experienced the CAT starting to rust within a few months of using it ?

I keep my bike clean and have only ridden it in the wet a couple of times but still the CAT looks bad. I will today have a go at it with metal polish but still it seems to rust at the welds.

Just wanted to know if this is just mine or if others have experienced the same ? I am thinking about talking to my Suzuki Delaer about it as its quite bad

The title of this thread is misleading.

I thought it was about my cat, named Rusty.

2016 Red/Black GSX-S1000F.

I can't wait to get my system off in the winter and give it a proper polish.

Certain people are like slinky's, no apparent use but always bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs

Not a problem that I've encountered,
my CAT is currently in a box in the garage
