Couple tips maybe that I have found. Do a quick buff with plastic polish. (Only 5min needed) after maybe 400 grit so you can see if you got all the big scratches out. The plastic turns so grey until you polish that you can’t see the scratches. I have ... more »

Cool thanks for that. I think from your info the only mistake I have done is cross hatching. I sand both ways. I’ll quit. I had some bad spots so used the razor blade on those then 220 everywhere. 320 was struggling a bit. Thanks for the info. My fingers ... more »

OP wear gloves when you wet sand. Your fingers get all soft and the sand paper made my fingers bleed. About 2 hours in and this is fully razor bladed and 220 and 320 grit done.

Here is the top that has been done with about ... more »

Thanks for the info. My buddy is good friends with defy graphics and we will get some stock ones made up. Going with a stock look. This one was bought from a junk yard so I don’t think it was ever up forsale. I’ll try the 220 and get this thing looking ... more »

Thanks and it really does not look too bad. I will go pick up some 220 also. If I gave up I would just have our graphics buddy make some to cover the whole thing green. I wanna get it looking good tho. It’s not my tank either. Did get this for a good ... more »

Thanks for that. I’ll get some pics as I go. Has some weird runs on the top of the tank that were maybe splashed fuel not sure. Super hard to get out. I’ve been using a razor blade. The rest of the tank is not bad.

I am doing an 89 tank right now too and I have 2 questions. How do you know you are good to switch to the next grit? I have been sanding with 320 and when it dries it looks worse like more white. Is that normal? I feel like it is.

Awesome thank you. I was kinda thinking this. Would a green fender be similar plastic or is tank plastic and fender plastic different compositions? Oh and does just your regular soldering iron work or do I need something g special.

Perfect info but also keep your triples because you may need the stem to press into the new triples.

You already have the good shows forks that everybody puts on the 03 and older rms. Just get them redone. Yeah maybe you could fit something newer but I don’t think there is a real reason to. It all depends on what you want. I’m sure you could do some ... more »

I think it would be a waste of time. Keep the bike you got and ride. If you don’t have the time for a frame swap then you don’t have the time to look for a bike that is not roached, put new bearing in the linkage cuz those are prob gonna be toast, find ... more »
