I was just going to say just get yours powdercoated, but it might have run about $35 or so anyway. Not a bad deal.
They are pretty easy to take off, but you do have to take out the swing arm bolt as well as remove the rearsets.
Note how we supported the bike, just a 14" or so length of 1/2" rebar, through the center stand holes. I would lift the bike on the kick stand (lean it towards me) and then slide the jack under the rebar on the right side. Then lean it towards the right and pick it up far enough to slide the other jack under the other side. I was able to to it myself, just be careful.
Yeah, I figured I'd spend $50, then resell mine. Even if I sell em for cheap, I'll still come out ahead than if I were to take it apart and have my bike unusable while I wait for a powdercoater.
I have a proper center-stand to use, unless you're saying I'll need to do it without it?
That is a great price for new powdercoated brackets! The black brackets, swing-arm, etc. look great (especially on the red!!) and are all pretty easy to swap out. Post some photos when you're all done!
I'm not sure they're powdercoated, I think they're factory colored however Honda does it.
I'll be constantly "murdering out" all the other silver pieces as time and lack of riding weather allows.
And photos are a given my friend.
I don't think these are powered coated. He has a lot of NOS 919 parts that he buys from dealer's overstock.
I'm cool with it not being powdercoated. There'll be plenty of other pieces I'm simply going to give the rattle-can treatment.
