Greetings & Salutations!!!

Wow, that's awesome paint job!

I like using 16t sprocket in front for freeway cruising. Much more relaxed.
Stock fork seals work fine. Just did mine last month.

Welcome. Factory seals are great but if you want to save a little money "All Balls Racing" sells seals as well. I used them on my CBR and 1k miles later and 2 trackdays it's still good. Enjoy your bike you'll get a lot out of it.

Welcome Tyler...
I have a 2012 250R and love it
I would keep with the stock shocks and just rebuild them myself much cheaper that way.
that is a very pretty paint job on your bike ! I love the metal flake !
but get you some sliders on it before you lay it down and scratch it all up as you'll never be able to match that paint !
....
I have a 16 tooth sprocket on front and a 43 tooth sprocket on the rear
and I could cruse at 70~75mph all day if my butt could handle it ! LOL
I did have to work on the chain cover in the front to get clearance though...
I just took a hack saw blade and cut the part that was touching off....
(technically I clamped the chain cover in the vice between 2 wood blocks and cut off the half moon protrusion with a reciprocating saw, it went pirty fast, and then bolted right up. no more shift shift and shift before going 30mph either... that's silly !
...
Bob......

I was literally looking at that same paint last night wondering what it would look like on mine. That is sharp looking, how many coats/cans did it take?

So the key is to get the 2k clear not the cheap stuff it’s about 20 bucks a can and you break the thing on the bottom to mix and you only have a few hours to use I believe if I remember right here a link this stuff is key to amazing finish if I remember right I bought about 4 cans of paint and 2 of clear maybe 3 but it’s worth it 100% https://www.amazon.com/SprayMax-Glam...95780726&psc=1

Correct. That's what I used on my 250 and my Moto Guzzi, over the color coats. For the 250 it took 2 cans to do just the parts I kept, so I can imagine it would take 3 to include the fairings. I used Duplicolor lacquer for the metallic red, but I won't use it again. It's very finicky and very vulnerable to gasoline spills. Luckily the Spraymax 2K is protecting it well, and a little spillage at the gas station doesn't hurt it at all.

If you don't finish the can of Spraymax, you can keep it in the refrigerator for at least a week, maybe a little longer. I used some that was a week old without any problem, but I let it warm up thoroughly before I sprayed it.

Wow, that turned out awesome Jim!!!



Yeah, lacquer's not cured paint with permanent poly-vinyl cross-linking, so it can get dissolved easily.

As for clears, does anyone know where I can get some of this stuff? Best I've ever used, continues to flow for 20-minutes after spraying for glass-smooth finish! No cutting needed. And super-tough and chip-resistant.



EDIT: Ah... I see that DuPont was bought by The Carlyle Group and re-branded as Axalta Coatings... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axalta

Thanks JR. I painted my '72 H2 with Imron in 1979, and that paint is still on it. I wouldn't hesitate to use it again. I've spilled brake fluid on it and it doesn't hurt it at all. I even got lacquer thinner on it, and if you wipe it off reasonably quickly it won't damage it either.
