Side cover powder coat

Recommended Posts

iluvspdtt
So I decided to take my side covers off and spray them with some chassis black just to make sure I was going to like the look before committing to powder coat. Now the question is, does anyone know of a place that could color match the powder coat to the dark bronze color of the engine covers? If I can't get them matched to that I'll stick with matte black to match the rest of the bike but just thought the bronze would look good. Next question, does anyone know of a good powder coater that does mail order? There really aren't any places close to me to have it done. Thanks in advance guys/gals.

This is where I got all the work done on my bike, powdercoated wheels, space between the seats, rear of back seat, and tank. Also other asthetics to the bike were done there. You can contact them about having parts mailed to them to be powdercoated or contact them to inquire about other alternatives to having the work done for you.

I decided to just go with flat black. My uncle said he'd do them for me, just gotta mail them to him. He has a set of risers for another bike of mine for 4 years. Lol. He said he forgot about them and would ship everything back together in a week.

Just a heads up for those wanting to black out their side frame covers, pivot cover caps, heal guards, and rear axle holders...
 
The new 2016 FZ-07 with Yellow wheels has these items Black from the factory. Some powder coaters have a minimum set up charge of $150 or sometimes more. Depending how much you are getting charged to professionally paint or powder coat these items it may be less expensive to just go to buy the Yamaha OEM pieces that are already Black. And the bonus is you have a spare set in case you lay the bike down and damage them.
 
Just sayin'

Those are the part numbers and prices via yamahapartshouse.com
 
other places are about the same price... and shipping is another 10-20 bucks depending on where you live in the states

With the rest of your bike looking the way it does... i didnt think that would be an issue
 
But i'm in the same boat... waiting on my paycheck to place the order... parts are already saved to cart

Lmao...I was thinking the same thing. I am just going to get my resets powdercoated so that it's all blacked out. Just measns it'll cost me a little less due to having less parts to have powdercoated.
