Yummy Brown Dust...
Just picked up a cherry condition '09 1100 Classic with 19k on it, after 5 years of riding a 650 Classic.
I noticed today after a couple of shakedown rides that I've got a pretty good accumulation of brown dust on the chrome in the general area of where the clutch cable enters the housing.
Anything to be concerned about ? I wiped it away the first time I saws it but it was right back after my last 75 mi ride.
Never saw this on my old ride before.
Other than that, she rides and shifts fine.
