Hello troopers ,
I picked up my 2008 DL 1000 from the local mechanic after completing major Overhaul , bike is in break in period and really rides like a champ.
I put around 150 miles on new engine , with the new brakes and shocks and tires and every thing electrical working , this bikes needs nothing , but just face-lifting.
The color on fairings and odo meter fainting due to exposure to sun.
other vise very little scratches to fairing , the Suzuki sticker from the 2 sided are still there and clean but I already bought the German designed from cypress decals for front side and back cover sides.
I want to do some thing for exterior color ,
I have watched numbers of videos on how to paint your car or motorcycle with paint can spray . I think I have 2 options as following;
1- sand the old paint , use primer , then paint then clear coat ( of course with sandpapering in between) ,
2- not wanting to sand or primer it but just buffing and polish and then spray the clear coat.
should I place the new stickers after all clear coating or place them and then use the clear coating.
my bike is silver and can find the paint from Colorite with Color code YMD.
or just cleaning the oxidation , and then placing clear coat will take care of it.
And what is your
recommendation for odometer and switches area rejuvenation?
