Swingarm paint?

Postby Vossman » 04:45 pm Aug 04 2018

04 KDX 200, is the OEM swingarm painted silver? Powdercoat maybe? I’d like to get the black scratches out, is that possible?

Paint code is CE, wheel gentry gray. Look on the parts diagrams. The last couple of letters or numbers on painted and some colored parts is the color code.
Thank you, Julien D for all your hard work!

PLEASE! Do not "dip" PWK Keihin carbs in Berryman's to clean them! It will damage the internal o-ring (jet block gasket).

Swingarm paint?

I used VHT High Temp Brake Caliper paint. It is off from the factory color just a touch but you wouldn't notice if you have a green frame. It's pretty tough and requires you to bake it on.

And THAT, is why I just about have stopped answering paint threads. Everybody wants factory quality for Walmart price. :roll:

Cerakote stainless is very close. And is lots more durable. I haven't done mine yet but I did do my 73 cb750 frame and they sit right right beside each other. That's what I'm doing this winter. you won't save any money though. You can bake it on or air dry? Just another option?

And that's what the VHT caliper provides! :busted:
