The paint i used is a single stage enamel with a ceramic additive. This makes for a extremely durable finish. Almost as strong as powder coat for half the cost!. i love the semi gloss look of it as well...also no primer needed...it bonds extremely well.
do you mind divulging the product name? at the very least I need to paint my top clamp which I tried to do already with an aluminum wheel paint but it flaked so i stripped it down again had it all nice and clean then my tank bag strap got this black crap all over it, looks like you know what..
what I really like is how my 2k51k top clamp was done, its a lot like the SRAD top clamp cept they brushed the top area then used some sort of black matt paint or whatever that goes on very very thin so you can almost see the metal..
it looks very nice against the brushed aluminum..
say what you will about Suzuki thier fit and finish is some of the best I've seen from any manufacturer, they find simple and cost effective means to finish their product and EVERYONE in the industry always seems to jack something from them
first it was the extruded frames which I still highly regard, that nice extruded aluminum against the cast spars is very clean and a nice finish..
on to some of their paints, OK OK they have had some bad one and my 2k51k black yellow started chipping off real fast but Suzuki put new panels on it free of charge..
but my 2k2busa black/blue had some of the nicest finish you will ever see on a sportbike, on the heavy side? yes, but when you hit it with the plexus man look out it looked like water and the fluid styling?
just one of the reasons I like Suzukis so much, they always seem to be at the front, when and if this economy is restored I suspect Suzuki will be back on top bigger and better than ever, they just have that spirit and have always made the best sportbikes in the world, just ask anyone that works on motorcycles for a living...
