What to anodize?

Recommended Posts

I am going to send some parts for work out to be anodized.  I could throw some bike parts in for no extra cost.  So the question is:  What would you anodize on your DRZ if you had the opportunity?  (Has to be billet)

It would be nice to anodize the hubs.  But obviously that requires disassembly of the wheels. The brake calipers too.  The bearing bores and the caliper piston bores would need to be masked to prevent anodize dimensional change.  What type anodize?  What type of anodize seal?  What anodize thickness?  What natural color from the anodize bath? Any color die?

Billet is not a very descriptive or accurate term.  All aluminum parts can be anodized, cast, forged or machined.  Various alloys anodize differently.  Good quality forged and machined parts look the best.
