Painting Forks

Postby captaincable » Fri Jul 27, 2012 6:29 pm

Had another ? was wondering if anyone has repainted front forks, the forks on this 97 R850R need a little sprucing up, would like to know what kind of paint to use.

Suggest you go and see your next paintshop. They will recommend the right stuff to you. The fork needs some kind of PU or rubberish paint which keeps a certain amount of flexibility as the fork legs are under a constant bombardment of little stones and other abrasive materials ...
