I have a bit of rust forming on my handlebars, and was just curious on what you folks use to rid it
This stuff is similar and easier to find, Krud Kutter. http://www.amazon.com/Krud-Kutter-Ga...sxp_grid_i_1_1. It's costly but it works great, even on very rusty stuff. The other stuff is an Australian product that's tough to find.
Great advice Flingwing.. Dusty Bottom the key ingredient is Phosporic acid that converts rust from Iron oxide to Iron phosphate.. The products you(Flingwing) mentioned are good and it doesnt take much of it to do the small jobs like the T-Dubs!There is another product I have used a few times that works well and is readily available at Home Depot called..Kleen Strip Prep and etch.. Its like $16 a gallon. That should last you a lifetime..You should find this in the paint dept..
'13 690 Enduro R too many frickin farkles...
'07 KLX250 farkled (wife's bike)
'86 BW80 farkled to size
'10 TW200 you will be missed
For phosphoric acid, I use Ospho. I had to order it from Do It Best. Apparently phosphoric acid is on the EPA's hit list. It's getting hard to find as a metal prep or a stain remover (concrete). Odd that's it's still OK to put phosphoric acid in make up and sodas...
I believe I remember reading that once you open a container, it has a shelf life. If you're buying in large quantities that may sit for a while, you may want to confirm or deny this.

I work at a independent NAPA store and we sell skyco. Anyone I've ever sold it to comes back and tells me it's worked great.
