powder coated 1100s controls

There should be a thumbnail. If I failed at pic posting please delete the post mods.

I had these powder coated while doing a refresh on my hyper.

Came out pretty good. The pegs still seem to be grippy which was my main concern. One passenger mount and peg was well rashed ...they took that out when they prepped em.

Looking good Funny coincidence that I yesterday cleaned mine with solvent and I`m taking them to get coated tomorrow. They are silver and black looks better in my bike. Do you happen to remember how shiny is your coating (grade/percent) ?

It is similar to a polished stainless/aluminum. They didn't specify a grade/percent. They can Cerakote to an almost chrome finish but it is much more expensive as it requires a few more steps.

One thing I don't like about powder coating is that if the finish becomes damaged or scratched or everwhat, it's difficult to repair. The part must either be completely stripped of powdercoating, which involves using a propane torch, bead blasting, and then recoating the part again.

I built roughly 500 audio processors that were powdercoated in one of three different colors. So I've ~some~ experience with the process.

When my wife and I refinished the wheels for her 1982 Yamaha XJ650J I worked out a refinishing method that did not involve powdercoating. The nice thing about that was if either wheel's finish were damaged, it was a simple matter to repair the damage. If they were powdercoated, the tires would need to be removed, as would all of the wheel bearings, wheel weights, and valve stem ... and only then the torching/bead blasting/powdercoating could be done. Then the bearings would be reinstalled, tire remounted, and the assembly rebalanced. Fooey on all of that!

So I'm pretty particular about what gets powdercoated and what gets finished in another way.

Aside from my silly opinions, Member *Shawn of the Dead your parts look super nice!!

My fault. They looked black in little picture on phone screen But still looking good and it`s maybe better I didn`t realise true color of your parts yesterday...i might would have wanted same
I dropped my parts to powder coating this morning and went with black color. I said that no need to hurry, but obviously they don`t have big projects going on now because parts should be ready friday.
I really hope they do good job and everything goes without surprises.

I agree with you and my first choice would have been anodizing. I didn`t find any company in Finland that would do hard anodizing (or even normal) to private customers. I understand that because unique/invidual items, small amount, small profit etc.

Everybody recommended powder coating so i decided to go that way. If it turns out bad idea after couple years, I just blast them clean and paint them with spray gun myself.

I went with powder coating since I didn't want to lay out the loot for new controls and passenger pegs.

A word to the wise .... make sure and check all the fitment of pins and fasteners prior to install. My guys either poorly plugged or failed to plug some of the holes. It was a real bear to get some of the items installed. Mostly the passenger pegs.

If it doesn't hold up I will probably go aftermarket.
