I noticed the rear subframe is now black, but the stock grab bars are still silver. Poco a poco...

One of these years I'll get around to painting my subframe but no easy way like the grab bar.

I removed silver paint from the rear rack. The plastic that it's made of is black. Removing the paint involved a lot of scrubbing with cloth and paint thinner. After I finished I polished it with soft wheel on my drilling machine and car paint polish. At the end I applied black shoe wax with little sponge and after it dried I polished it with soft dry cloth. Now it looks like it's been painted black and no more scrathes will bust my ba**s.

Really makes one wonder why they go to the extra trouble of painting it with all the issues that causes. Also not sure why they thought silver was an improvement in looks over the black like they did on the 650.
