KX500 Clutch cover dirty and haggard

Post by Sandblaster » Tue Nov 14, 2017 12:17 am

I have a KX500 clutch cover that has some deep gouges in it.
And generally it looks haggard.

So I grabbed my hand grinder and the DeWALT DAAB7GFV05 flapper wheel..

I don't have a pic of the cover when I first started but you get the idea.

After a few minutes with the grinder, it's gone...

A few minutes on the buffing wheel and it looks much much better..
