Brake Fluid Damage?!?
As I mentioned in another thread, I don't have a lot of free time to ride so that means the XR does not get a bath very often. If it is nice enough to wash it then it is a better day to ride! I did clean her up today and noticed a quarter size "rough" spot on the right lower side of the front fender toward the frame. I think it is probably brake fluid damage but not sure since I have never seen it before. I do bleed my brakes every other year and last bled them last winter (1.5 years ago) but never noticed this till now. The spot is quarter size and rough to the touch and very noticeable if the light hits it just right but not noticeable at all in any other light (both wife and neighbor had trouble finding the mark). Is this brake fluid damage and will this spot eventually rust? I tried to take a picture but couldn't get it to come out very well.
