A well known Vincent practitioner used the same liquid to micro etch his barrels overnight after they had been honed. While I think he washed them in the morning before fitting, unfortunately what beer he drank before the aplication has been lost to posterityI can recall that in the depth of winter a constable recommended and alternative to clear a frozen fuel line.
On my bike maybe the mounting tabs are already bent in a bit. They look straight but maybe they aren't.
