    Default Rearset Powdercoating Question

    It must be getting close to riding season as I'm here starting a new thread. Actually it's just a question about powder coating my rearsets. For as long as I've had the bike, it has bugged me that the bike is literally all blacked out except for the rear footrest brackets and the rearset brackets and heel guard which are silver. I removed all of them this morning and the powder coater is ready for me with some satin black powder.




    My question for anyone who has done this before is: my concern is on the rearsets, they have a pressed in bushing where they mount to the frame of the bike. Will that get ruined in the powdercoating process? Do they need to be removed first? Any help would be appreciated. Otherwise I'll just do the rear passenger footpeg brackets and call it a day. Thanks very much.

    I had mine done with them left in and it was fine...your powdercoater should be able to tell you if they will be ok...mine did...

    I thought the same thing about all the silver...your gonna like it...if you decide to try the carbon fiber heel plates i think i have a couple pair somewhere...i had the powdercoater leave the heel plate area silver and did the area right below that in black.

    Oh I like those carbon plates! I must find me some. I didn't want the downtime for powder coat on my old gen1. So I took a chance with some high temp crinkle coat enamel paint. I left the heal area alone since I figured it would rub off. But it turned out great and lasted. Rearset Powdercoating Question-img_8223.jpg

    You are right. I think I'm going to leave out the heel plates and pick up a pair of CF Plates. I think it will give some contrast to the satin black. Thanks for all the help!
