No...but make sure they block off ALL of the oil passages in the frame to keep both sand from sand blasting and the epoxy powder out of the oil tank!

If I were you, I would strip the bike down to the frame and have the frame done. Tried to do the frame with the bike intact on my TRX, and worked out to be a royal mistake.

Couple places in Orange County-

Try Electrolurgy in Santa Ana or Olympic Powder coating. That is if they are still around- been a few years since I lived there.

I wouldn't even consider doing it any other way.

Pro Circuit recommend Olympic Powder Coating right off the bat. I got a quote of $175 which is the cheapest so far. A bit of a drive from my place but may be worth it.

This is off topic but what color are you going with? I did my '04 a couple years back and it is a candy blue cost about $200. I just got done with my '07 and made it gloss black got a deal cause it was his first dirt bike frame $60.

OLympic used to be off Dyer road & the 55fwy, west to about main street or bristol.

Good operation, high quality.

I had my 02 done in a really nice silver color a year or so ago. Came out excellent it blends with all different plastic colors well. Think I am going to do the same on the WR. It's actually silver right now previous owner painted it.
