Are you going to run any frame grip or protection for the paint?

You know i thought about running the frame grip but i just dont like the way it looks .....had a frame powder coated a few years back and it actually didnt wear down that fast...

For sure, powdercoat looks the best. I wasn't sure how the Kawi or Honda frames hold up because there's so much more frame exposed than KTM.

Thanks for all the positive comments guys been collecting parts for a while , still waiting on a few ...only shitty thing about this build is that im being rushed ...have a race this coming saturday with alot left to do ...the biggest thing getting it programed and tuned on the dyno which also requires me to get a custom header with an o2 bung welded on it...and with work all week long .....crossing my fingers
