pairs block off plates

I had 10 sets of plates ready to go. They are similar to semi_grey's plates. One difference is no divits for screw clearence. You can drill them easy enough. They are not polished, they are sand-blasted which is close to the engine finish. You can paint them or polish them if you so desire. I tried to cut a few corners to keep the costs down for members. I will ship them anywhere in the CONUS or Canada with the 4 shorter bolts you will need for $22. PM me if interested.

I did the flat black high temp stuff. It's close enough and looks good to me.


Just don't use engine degreaser. It will eat that paint like water. Don't ask how I know.

Actually, I used the same paint on a homemade fender eliminator I made out of scrap metal. When I was cleaning the bike I thought, man, I bet some engine degreaser would take that soot right off of that eliminator and the license plate bracket.

It took the soot right off. And the paint. Right down to the bare metal.

The paint I had was Krylon high temp flat black. It was listed as 'good for barbeque's' or something. It will handle heat just fine, just not engine degreaser, lol.

Funny. A word of warning from my experience: Any solvent will take that high temp BBQ grill paint right off. I used it one time on a set of ugly stock exhaust pipes when I wanted to test out the black pipe look. Had a blemish on them after a few weeks that I tried to wipe with paint prep degreaser. Paint wiped right off. Even an accidental splash of gas in the garage took the paint off.

On a positive note, that BBQ grill paint can be touched up and blend perfectly every time. Very easy to work with. Just be aware of its limits.

If you could do the divits for the screws I'd be willing to pay a few $$ more as I'm sure other members would. I'd rather buy from someone here than ebay anytime.

If I had a drill press I would do it. Now for me to do it I would have to take my set or my wifes' set of plates off to get the measurements. Not worth it to me. It is so easy to drill. Once measured out it takes about 2 seconds per screw.

I drilled mine this morning, just thought these measurements could help.
All measurements in mm's, diameter of the screw head roughly 5.25mm.

Thanks for adding to the thread Mrt81, goes to show that it is a very easy thing to do. I thought you would have done the plates long ago. I guess you're getting it all ready for some serious riding this year. You and I are joining Mcromo44 at the trck this year, right?

a big thing with high temp paint is that it must be baked to be chemical resistant. use VHT 500 degree paint. i like it is sprays kinda watery and needs a few coats and need to be baked at 200 degrees for 30 minutes but holds up sweet

**NOTE: the plates are not symetrical, make sure you are drilling the holes on the right side of the plates...

Hey Sean, is there any possibility you still have some of these left? I would like to get them and do this mod in the off season. Or perhaps you may be able to do more before next spring...
