I was going to use some griptape for a traction aid, and also to make the frame look better. But, I ended up going with some spray that has a really grippy texture. It is actually made for like an automotive undercoating or fender flares...Heres some pics, let me know what you think!

most undercoating gets a little soft and tacky when hot. Let us know how it holds up.

Yeah, Clean that bike..I clean mine twice a year, whether it needs it or not..
Constant cleaning shoves water and dirt in where its not wanted.. :excuseme:

why not just powder coat it...my brother just had his banshee frame powder coated a yamaha blue and it is sharp. next step is him selling the banshee and getting a 4 stroke bike :ride:

he got the job done for free...saved him like $400 or something....i thought about asking if i could throw my bike in there too but didn't want to be with out it while it was tore down....then it broke down so i'm with out a bike anyway...and no powdercoat :ride: :ride:
