    Re-clearing the clear coat on scoops

    The clear coat on my vmax scoops are spider webbing, and I wanted to ask the advice of the veterans. I'm thinking of stripping the clear coat using aircraft stripper. My only concern here is if it will discolor the scoops. If so, will a simple buffing restore the color, or am I looking at...

    Clear Clutch Cover

    I have a Barnett clutch upgrade installed and I'm wondering if anyone has a line on a clear clutch cover for a Gen 1? Wondering IF UFO is still taking orders for theirs? See it on Exactrep, but that's over seas. Also found one at vmaxshop.com. Hoping to find it in a match to the matte finish of...

    Clear scoop inserts?

    Does anybody on here know who to ask about getting some scoops inserts made out of 1/4" lexan? I want to turn my scoops into turn signals by using frosted lexan like a fiber optic with led strips in the scoops. I know I remember seeing a thread on it a while ago but the forum search sucks if I'm...

    Wiring front LED signals and rear Clear Alternative integrated brake light/signals

    Wired the signals up and they just flash versus individually signal. Any thoughts? Fronts are the basic LEDs and I wired hot to hot, ground to ground and didn't use the blue (running light) and they both flash at the same time regardless of using left or right turn signal switch. Same in...

    clear covers

    Just wondering is there a way of making clear clutch covers etc from my shed, what are the main issues I would be facing since I dont have a machine shop?? Is it a case of carefully cutting out area and fixing a piece of perspex over the top secured with a round plate gasket and screws? Or...

    CBR taillight mod. Smoked or clear

    I am contemplating the CBR tail light mod on my 85 max. I was wondering who has this mod on their bike and what color did you use the smoked or clear lens and why.

    Clear coat coming off

    Can anyone tell me an easier way to get clearcoat off of my sissy bar and stock grab handle other than wet sanding? I have literally sanded my fingerprints off of some of my fingers on my right hand doing part some of it. :mad:

    Clear hand guards

    I built some hand guards for my bike, since it's been so cold this spring. Found the idea from instructables website and so far they work really well. No more numb fingers @ 1C (34F) outside. They are easy to take off for warmer weather and I don't find them to ugly since there clear. Anyways...

    How long to wait to clear coat exhaust after painting?

    I painted the exhaust with VHT 2000 degree paint and bought some VHT header clear coat. I've read for other paint jobs to sand the paint to smooth it then do clear coat. Is the header the same? I'm guessing super fine sand paper to smooth it out then clear coat. Would I just wipe with a...

    Too clear coat headers or not?

    I just painted my headers aluminum colored paint. It looks fine, but would be nice if it was smoother. Has anyone painted then added clear coat to give it that finished look? I just painted today so maybe after it cures and I heat it up a few times it will wear smoother with a washing. The...
