YZ 450 Clutch Cover...

12 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

Just wondering if any of you have an after market clutch cover on your bike? I am looking for a nice cover that will not scratch and fade.....Do they make any like that or do they all scratch and fade????

Recommendations needed.........

Thanks :thumbsup:

Does anyone have a picture of how they would look after sand blasting??

Is there anything you do it it after it has been sand blasted?

Thank You!

Joe, here is what I did with the cover on my YZ250. I used paint stripper on it, polished the face and painted the outer black. Very easy to maintain....just hit it with the scotchbrite when you wash it.

Satch,

That looks awesome dude :thumbsup:

Can you give me the detailed process including what exact products you used...What kind of polish etc...

Also, will this work on the ignition cover on the other side too???

I would love to do this to my bike today since I have the afternoon off!!!

Thanks :thumbsup:

Joe,

Take the clutch cover off. Spray it down with paint stripper (you can buy "aircraft" paint stripper in the automotive section of Walmart). I will tell you the paint on these things are hard to get off. That is why I re-painted the outer part black (never was able to get all of the factory paint off!!). I polished the front with scotchbite and aluminum polish.

You can probably work at it and get all the paint off (around the edges) but I got lazy and and decided to paint it. Actually I like the way it turned out!
