This is starting out as a very basic build.
Clean inspect, replace, polish, powder coat, ect to build a very nice clean stock chassis.
Humble beginnings.

Stripped, cleaned, painted, baked, clear coated, and baked again.
Why? Because I can  cheesy

If it's like the Mystery Machine, will there be Scooby Snacks?

Now let's see the cerakote! Mine actually wore off the rear brake MC from boot contact in the first ride on my 450 so I don't recommend it for areas like that though.

Did you use the air cure or oven cure.

I used the oven cure. I've read other places not to use it on the case covers either since it doesn't stand up well to direct wear.  I did my left side flywheel cover on both the 450 and 500 but I put high temp oven cure clear over it. So far that is standing up after 3 hours of hard Moto riding but I can see the clear wearing thru. The callipers and brackets still look good though.

Here's the rear MC after 2 rides. I'm also wearing through the frame gripper tape so it's seeing some heavy abuse!

If this bike sees any Cerakote it will be clear. All aluminum will be vapor blasted. On the outside this bike will be another clean stock build... But I intend to put some fire to the engine..  grin

That makes sense with all of the cleaning and
polishing grin. I tried the Cerakote Clear Aluminum coating on my K5 TSR right side cover to preserve the polished billet.  It's a lot easier to apply than the other coatings and doesn't require all the degreasing, catalyst, and oven cure.  I will see how well it holds up in a few weeks.

I have some of that clear but I'm not gonna hold my breath. I've shot it on non wear parts only...
They need to add Kryptonite to it or something....  cheesy
