Anodizing Frame

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about having the frame on my 2005 CRF450X red anodized. I can't find a lot of info on this. Has anyone had this done, and do you have any pics?

Yep. Black. Looks awesome. IMO :rolleyes: . Most Impotantly though. Weight added is minimal. Powder coating = about 15lbs

 

You need to take all the steel from the frame. The theads are steel, in most cases  :thumbsup: .

 

Haven't got a real good picture of the actual fame or swinger sorry.

 

Frame guards sare from "Carbon Pro" in the UK.

To take the threads out. Just scew a bolt in slightly. Get the tusty hammer, and................... whack  :lol: .

 

To put them back in. Just hold the thread in position, do the bolt up finger tight, then tighten with a socket, It'll press back into the frame  :thumbsup: .

That bike looks awsome. I've been told that the welds may not look the greatest when anodized. Would love to see a frame that has been red anodized.

Thanks for reminding me it's coming  :thumbsup:   :( .

 

Hoping to get out this Sunday, tomorrow for me :ride: .

 

OP

 

The factoy welds look fine. If the welding wire has silicon in it, it looks a bit off. Slightly bown.

 

I added a 3rd pic. Look at the factoy welds around the head stem.

for us El Niño is good , dry around here. Although the hill climbs will get rutted if it comes down too fast. Doesn't become a drought in your neck of the woods during El Niño?

I couldn't see it adding any more then 3lbs to a frame and swingarm. I paint 6 days a week. I'm at work right now actually. I shoot mainly ppg powder with some tci and americoats powder. I'll be painting my swing arm in 2 weeks and I can give you an exact weight that it added to an03 cr250 swinger if you'd like? I wouldn't rule out powder coating as an option yet. Get some nice carbon fiber frame guards like that sick Suzuki. Nice work on that btw. Or even get some grip tape and you'll never even have to worry about the paint rubbing off.

Yeah. It was new. Bought it fom the States when the AUD was over $1,00 USD.

 

Got a 14 model Roller getting an 06 250 engine in it ATM as well . A Mate should have the fame conversion finished tomorrow. Although, he's said that before, and Tuesday will be 11 months since I dropped it off  :banghead: . He's had it since 10/12/2014. Was still the currant mode l when I dropped it off   :rolleyes: .

 

Should have just bought a welder  :facepalm: .

I rode street bikes right up until I was thinking about my kids more than i was thinking about what I was doing. About 35 I think  :lol: . I'm not the only one either.

 

Last bike was an R-1. I painted it Holden Monaro Yellow and had the graphics re-printed in Chrome and Black, tinted visor, Carbon silencer, and Nickle plated the rims. That's all :thumbsup: .

Although I don't work powder coating, 15lbs sure seems like alot for a dirtbike. I would think maybe 6-9lbs, which on the frame isn't too drastic. Anodizing is generally quite a bit more than pc'ing also.

You could be right. I was quoting someone from Vital MX. Anno will be significantly lighter though.
