Paint was chipping of my cover so I followed the steps very simple, used high heat paint, just have to clean off a few spots I spayed because of the wind and dogs messing with me.

Very very happy with the turn out. :D
Gonna wait a hour let it cure in the sun while I clear her up and get her ready the ride tonight.

Sorry to bump, trying to avoid unnecessary new threads.

I want to try this out, but want to remove the bolts on the cover while painting to be 100% thorough. Will loosening/removing the bolts jeopardize the seal and/or cause leaks? If not, does loosening the bolts then re-tightening them compromise the seal?

If it were me I'd take it off full be better job. Re-sealing it it easy and not to much $$$. But to answer your question you could chance it but it's that a chance.


My simple build.

Awesome job! Mine has the silver cover, so would look odd being painted black. :-(

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.
