First of all are these easy to get off and more importantly easy to put back? Secondly is it worth removing them in order to apply waxoyl or something similar to the chassis etc?

Had the Bleazey Centa drive conversion, swinging arm service and chain drive installed on my 2012 model recently so just want to make sure everything else is sorted. The main reason for this is that Phil said the swinging arm was one of the rustiest he had seen until he sorted it. I just want to stop any other possible corrosion in it's tracks and hopefully prevent some.

I believe that they are riveted on so would entail much drilling to remove.


What's your mileage? Who cares. Is it practical? See #1. What happens when it rains? You get wet.
