Vapour Blasting

Recommended Posts

Hi all hope your well. I have started a new XS250 project and one of my problems is to clean 35 years of corrosion on the aluminium engine covers. Has anyone hear had any experience of vapour blasting. Thanks

XS250 you say?, vapour blasting? Have you considered 88mm Cannon Blasting

Only joshing Bud. I had a bad experience with an xs250 and have never got over it.

 

Not tried vapour blasting personally, but seen some good results on my mates bikes and online

vapour blasting is great, get your carbs done too.

no idea where you live as you didn't complete your location details on the left. so can't help with a local supplier

Just had a price on the clutch housing cover, that on its own is £25. They cant do the engine complete so I would have to dismantle it and I was hoping to avoid this.

usually have to strip before vapour blasting

A guy local to me charges £10 an hour and does it in his shed
