Just finished the bike from the previous post. http://www.rzrd500.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=14767&p=148547#p148547

All is well, looking forward to riding her for a while.

Thanks for all the help from forum members.

Well done! What brand of paint did you use on the exhausts?

The exhaust was painted with VHT flat black and then VHT matte clear. I am not very happy with it as the clear seems to be soft. I have only ridden about 100 miles and it is already nicked up from gravel. It looked good when first painted.

Agreed the paint looks good - just wish I/we could find a paint that looks good and is resilent apart from powder coat.

Very nicely done.
Was curious as to the UK market 'breakaway' Mirror stems though.

Yea, I know. I have a decent stock right mirror, but I couldn't find a left mirror for anywhere close to a reasonable price, so I just bought new aftermarkets for it.

I also have some paint to fix on the bottom of the tank. I had a pinhole that I discovered after paint and it caused about a 1 inch patch of paint to bubble up. I then treated the tank with Kreme to fix that and got some on the other side of the tank in about the same place. If I can't repair it where it can't be seen, I will strip the paint on the tank and do it again.
