Front fork slider
« on: 22 April, 2020, 11:25:09 PM »
Hi,
This is my first post on the forum, so here goes.
I've bought a CBF1000-A6 and the "paint" on the front fork sliders is peeling.
How do you repair / repaint these parts and what with.

The front fork lowers are a common enough problem on the CBF, I need to get around to mine soon. I'm thinking of Simoniz rattle cans. Robo made a good job of his by taking them down to bare metal with a wire wheel then an etch primer for bare metal, Simoniz Grey primer, Simoniz Steel wheel and a coat of Simoniz clear lacquer. He did a decent write up of the process he went through with plenty of step by step photographs, sadly the photographs were on a third party website and longer available.

Others have used Rust-oleum, Simoniz tough paint, Hammerite etc Some have vinyl wrapped too.

Follow  Mick Jagger's lead and paint it BLACK :mfrlol:

I did mine for four quid !
2 cans of primer
2 cans of black gloss from the local pound line
