I PC my swing arm off my 06. it has held up perfectly. No issues best decision I could've made.

My bike was also in a wreck and no damage to the PC at all.

check my build thread and see for yourself.

I would PC over spray or plastidip any day.

I would too if money wasn't an issue. Plasti-dip is easily removed later(if you so choose). Just depends on your situation I suppose. I'm trying to save up money for a new car but I have a mod itch that needs to be scratched every month or so.

The first time I dipped my swingarm, I didn't take it off. It was a pain the ass. The lines aren't as clean, you can't really get to any of the spots that you do want to mask off, you have to worry about over-spray(to an extent, you can remove most of it with microfiber) etc etc.

I just got my 05/06 swingarm in the mail and I don't want to PC it because I can just plasti-dip it for like 1/15th the cost. I'm taking advantage of it being off of the bike. I'm cleaning it really well with simple green, then going at it with some 91% alcohol and going to give it double the coats I did the firs time around. I'm also going to let it cure for a few days.

I've been watching a lot of the Dipyourcar.com videos on youtube. Going to go with their instructions.

Hell, I found a guy that will hit me up with some custom vinyl for my fairings so I will probably dip them, apply the vinyl and clear it all and save myself a good $400 on new plastics.

The options really are endless.

Hey listen can you link me to the plasti dip that you got and tell me where you got it and the steps you took to apply it? Thanks

I'm doing the deed this coming week. got to find the proper tools, I want to remove the swingarm itself.

Will be pressure washing and using a caustic cleaner to remove all the road grime. Doing the engine too. So I might just take the bike all the way down.

Already have the headers, rear seat plate and frame, all fairings, etc.
