I think I'm comming down with something...

Ordered the renthal lows, pazzo levers, and dominator dual headlights. Damn you guys. Next is mirrors.

Anyone have a set of stock headlight mounting brackets, I'd like to get a set powder coated, but don't want to decommission the bike to do it. Otherwise, I'll wait for the snow before I do it.

You don't NEED to have this part powdercoated - a can of primer and a can of semi-flat black and your bike is only down for a couple hours. Mine was ridden daily all winter in the rain and held up just fine.

Well, I ended up with a spare set of mounting brackets, so I'll give the spray paint a shot. Thanks for the tip. Did you do anything before priming other than clean it?

i spray painted everything on my bike mostly including the engine block and tank and i store my bike outside 24/7. The paint has held up really well and shows no signs of ware. Spray paint is a good and cheap solution.

I sanded everything with at least 600 grit sometimes 800 grit befor primering and painting

Now you need Galfers, some grab rail caps, and maybe an interceptor's single sided swing arm!

I paint cars, bikes, whatever. Use good paint and prep well. Most of the paint jop is in the prep. Use a good wax and grease remover like PPG DX330. and a scotch brite scuff pad (gray is good red if its really tough). Make sure everything is as clean as you can get it. Most important thing is have fun.

I probably didn't do it 'correctly' but it worked. I didn't have any special cleaners so I cleaned them with a spray household cleaner and then rubbing alcohol. I gave them 2 coats of spray primer and 3 coats of paint. They held up all winter in the Seattle rain without an issue. However, if you can do it correctly, I'd recommend that.
