Tested the new SW Motech Crashbars Today - What touch up paint do you use?
Are Crashbars gravel magnets? I've had my 650 for a year, and down many a back road. I just put on new SW Motech crash bars last weekend, and this weekend I drop it in low speed slide in the gravel (apparently I put them on just in time).
The good news - the guards worked perfectly! Not a scratch on the plastic. Just some battle scars on my right hand guard and the passenger peg.
It did, however, chew up the finish on the guard pretty well. What paint do people use for touch up? I'm kind of trying to decide between rustoleum and Plasti-kote. Bed liner might be a good idea once they're chipped up a bit more, but right now my guards are looking pretty new other than the new silvery rash they're sporting.
