Is there a certain paint I should use on either stock or race glass? Does it need a flexing agent since it is plastic afterall? With my recent crash I have the opportunity to do something a bit different.
Reaper - I recommend you use a single brand for all your products, friom the cleaner-degreaser to the final coat. That way you'll avoid incompatibility that can cause peeling and crazing. For street applications, I'd recommend a base coat/ clear coat, but for race plastic I'd think about single stage paint, much easier to repair if necessary.
The flex chemicals are normally for urethane bumpers, which are much more flexible than race glass. I didn't use it on my vfr. Nevertheless, use whatever prep is recommended by the ONE manufacturer you select.

What I stated above is what I was told when my bike was painted, not my personal knowledge of the subject.

I'm actually taking the wheels in tomorrow to have her new skins spooned on, but I was curious as to what folks are running since the front tire is a limiting factor for the 93's. Going with the BattleAxe S21's for now anyway.......here she is barefoot.........lol
I bought a SC33 project bike almost 2 months ago and been reading a lot of fireblades.org, and now I have a question. I'll save my stupid story for a build post.
I'm in the process of streetfighter'ing the SC33, and want to convert it to a single seat (have a spare subframe with plastic, stored...
Hey, had my bike for a few months now, it's not in bad condition, however, there are a few things that show it's age, I'm not too keen on the colour combo. The fairings are already not original so I'm not worried about losing oem parts to Chinese fairings.
While I'm not fussy about having oem...
