Painting mesh vents

Recommended Posts

I searched but nothing came up. Is there a easy way to do this ? I thought I seen someone do this with testers model enamel but I could be wrong. Could I just mask it off and brush it on.. it does get a little warm there don’t know if it would effect anything or not.

 

Edit to add that this is on a 2018 mt, any info on how to remove them would be groovy😎

seems to be 4 bolts and maybe a cpl clips just looking at it.

if you remove the scoops from the bike, there are small spring clips holding them on. its a matter of taking them off and using any paint you wish, it's an enameled aluminum screen thats on there from factory

Remove them. It was a little bit of work but worth it. I used model spray paint. Not the best angle but you can see they are yellow now. Back ones are red. I plan on putting LED's behind them.

Actually I forgot to mention they are the Yamaha upgraded screens. Heavy guage mesh.
