XR650R Powdercoating Frame Question

Recommended Posts

I disassembled the bike to have the frame powdercoated.

Does the spigot for the oil tank breather need to be removed, and if so, How? It looks to be a pressed in affair.

Also, there are two allen head plugs on the left side of the frame. Are there o-rings under these, or is it a tapered plug? Do these need to be removed?

I don't have the answers for you but wanted to possibly save you from the mistake I made on my 600r frame. I had asked them to go light over the VIN or tape it off, they did neither. I also spent hours re-threading and cleaning each hole and cleaning and scraping each VIN # and letter.

just tape off the areas carefully.

Good point about the VIN.

I would tape all the areas myself before giving them the frame.
