One Industries still does, but you have to buy the whole Huricane kit. It's not on their web site anymore, and is not in the catalogue, but they still make 'em. I just put one on my son's WR250 a couple of months ago. Looks great!

Very nice.
Did you have frame powder coated to black?
Also what type of colour did you use on engine covers?
I intend to build a 100% black bike, including side number plates and front fork guards.
Expect black powder coated frame end of the week, not yet sure what to do with rear arm (anodizing impossible).
Dont know if black powder coated arm would be durable enough for the woods.

The frame is painted, not powder coated (my son was too impatient to strip the frame and send it out, so PJ-1 Frame Paint to the rescue. The engine covers are rustoleum satin black hi temp engine enamel. My experience with powder coating is that it would hold as well as anodize in the woods. If it's gonna scratch and chip the epoxy powdercoat, it would scratch or gouge the anodize thru to the parent metal as well. Make sure they use a low temp (250 F) cure powder so you don't destroy the heat treat on the aluminum swing arm.

Thanks. He did all the work himself. His grades are definitely improving, motivated by both the bike and football eligibility!

License plate frame is just a cheepie from the local accessory store. The tail light/license plate mount is from Baja Designs. TT store sells em.
