"Any" rust creeping out from between engine mounts and a custom painted frame,.........is what "this" painter fears.

I'll take a look at mine and let you know. I've been running it since 2007 so that will be definitive.

I never remove paint or powder but I always run thread chasers(not taps) through all of the threads.

Checked it Frank. Just looks like paint. Can't see any rust if there is any. I was just guessing because it would seem like it's obvious that there should be some.

Vince - if you've had powder crumble you might want to find another coater. If it's cured properly it shouldn't do that (I'm just learning how to powder). That is assuming the bolts were properly torqued.

OK me - total amateur - sometimes compulsive.

masked off engine mount surface
after paint treated with the endrust stuff
after assembly touch up paint to the edge of the engine with fine brush
heavy GND cable to frame under transmission with
heavy GND cable to near starter
light GND to lights etc
no paint at GND contacts

It's not easy, nor does it not look like ass, when you try to touch up 3 stage candy paint.

A black frame like your Rog,........no problem.

Exactly.....no good reason to leave it.

Totally admirable! Why not do it to the best of your ability? Only makes sense. Very nice - and again, could doing it this way possibly have any adverse effect? No. Could leaving paint and / or PC? Yes.


As for touching up a 3 part paint job - why in the world would that be necessary if you scribed your mounts accurately during mock up, and masked cleanly? I've yet to have to think about touching up where I've scribed and masked mounts. Guess it depends on how you do it....

Removing all the powder coat is BS to me. It's my opinion so don't kill me for it. The factory doesn't do it and neither do I. Had no alignment probs and I can;t see it crumbling and my trans shifting. The sky is falling too and the Chinese are coming

Meh. If you mask it the bike won't rust. That is what the built in Harley "Everything oiler 9000" is for. Located conveniently at the crank vent... Haha.
