'02 919 overhaul completed

I spent the last 4 weeks overhauling my "Hornet 900". A lot of painting and polishing. I have been needing to replace my fuel tank for several years now. Once I finally had time and extra money...I decided to do the complete overhaul befor replacing the tank. I think I ride my bike a lot but he only has 27K miles on it. I'm going out for a long ride around SoCal today. He's riding better than ever and looking forward to a fun day. here are the photos: 919 Overhaul 11-8-15 by jaspiazza | Photobucket

Nice! I like the wheels and the Sato's.

Four wheels move the body ... two wheels move the soul.

I like it a lot! What did you do? Powder coat? Paint? Enamel? What parts on the back, the swing arm, rearsets, side covers and bracket? I am asking because I want to do the same to mine next year.....

I painted the swing arm, rearsets, and side covers with flat black epoxy enamel. Then I used SprayMAX 2K 368 0061 clear coat to provide a very hard and clear finish. I probably could have had them powder coated but liked doing the work myself. I also repainted the rear seat cover and side plastic covers with the color rite Honda Asphalt spray can. Expensive stuff but was well worth it. I painted the front fender with black plastic paint and topped it off with t he 2K clear coat as well. This gave it the glossy black color flow at the bottom. The side metal covers are painted in the flat black epoxy enamel without clear coat. Used TechFlex wrap on all of the electrical/control cables and hoses. Still working on the final LED light setup.

On the front headers I used stain magic to clean them and give an initial shine. That stuff worked very well but I then used Mother's Mag and Wheel polish for the final shine. A lot of elbow grease but paid off with very shiny pipes!
