Will do! Not sure if there is a write up on how to strip down a bike any where anyone know of one? If not I will wing it I guess and do a how-to on it. This may turn into a "after riding season" project. Looks like it may get quite involved stripping down the bike. Have build many cars just never messed with a bikeLet us know how it goes because I have wanted to do this for a while but just settled for a fellow busa buddy to paint the frame with several layers along with the swing arm. I will post the pictures as soon as I get them!
Thank you for the awesome info!No not really, just make sure that you talk to the people doing the powder coating and ask then for a roll of the tape they mask stuff off with so that you can do that yourself.
Mask off where the swing arm mounts inside and out, the neck/bearing races, engine mount bolt holes etc..also take a strip of tape and mask the VIN number on the right side of the steering head, I just saw one done and it filled in the VIN number and it could not be read.
Make sure you do a good job masking it off because most places will never to the good job that you could do yourself, trust me I have been there and done this.
any hole that a bolt go's through or screws in to needs to be masked off or you will have a biatch of a time getting it all back together.
