Frame powder coating

Recommended Posts

So my kx250 frame has had its fair share of scrapes and bruises. I want to freshen it up so I was considering powder coating it black eventually. Not too sure if I want it flat or gloss tho. I also want the swing arm done too but will I have to take out the bearings and seals to get it done?

Yes, take out all the seals, bearings, bushings, and bearing races (in the steering stem).

If your PC guy knows what he's doing, he'll mask everything properly before spraying.

Use a tap to chase all the threads when you get it back.

Go with satin black, it's not gloss, and it's not flat:

Here's an old YZ I murdered out in satin black PC:
