I always work on the the chemical bond and mechanical bond theory...Clear over paint within the specified time is good for chemical bond if chemical bond is not posible then you need to sand to make a mechanical surface to bond with.. Or it will just peel.

The only issue I see is if the clear does not bond correctly you may end up with spots of rust under the clear where the clear has not bonded.

Also on bare metal you would use an Etch Primer which promotes paint adhesion on bare metal. Not overly keen on wasting my clear only to have to re sand and re-polish..

I am sure I have another 2 or 3 tanks somewhere so might give clear a shot with one of them..

Is it me or does anyone else hold there breath when they first start the bike after they have been messing with it I mean transforming it.....

Of course after all the electrical skullduggery I have been doing I knackered the battery so it did not do what I wanted it to do when I pushed the launch button..

However a quick trip to the local bike shop hey presto new battery...and..............whooop whooop it fired up first push... a few adjustments with the motoscope pro and had RPM, Coolant temp, speedo.

Now its full speed with the plolishing and then a once over twice tweeking/thread lock the nuts and bolts from front to back...Like a old kid with a new toy today...


BRING ON THE SUN YOU FUCKERS........

After I finally got her to fire on all 4 cylinders instead of 2 I thought I would mess with some LED'S behind the clear clutch cover..Let there be light........As I change the colour of my bike more times than I probally should I have about 20 colour options....Youtube vid below aswell..

Have been thinking about where to put the Steering Damper for a while. Knowng that I would need one as the early R1's are a bit twitchy and a tank slapper are almost guaranteed without one. Dug around in my aladdin's cave (garage) and found an old fork mount kit..

Worked a treat

I had no idea you could polish steel to that degree. It is almost like chrome!
Awesome work and so much patience.

I like the red tank but lets see the shiny one? As a thought, now it is polished it would be ready for chrome plate if polishing and waxing doesn't work out.

polish steel to a mirror, we have to polish it to a 3 micron finish for injection moulds when the parts are to be clear or chrome plated
