What about the whole bike?

I saw a H1 Hummer once that was covered nose to tail in a spray on bed liner type finish. Very rugged and cool. Maybe this is not a bad look for the ultimate adventure bike?

Haven't seen it on the skidplate, but check with Strom-boli. He put it all over the plastic fairings on his VStrom...maybe even the tank. Can't remember.

The biggest issue I can see with using it on a skid plate is that it wouldn't slide off rocks and roots as well. It would have a tendency to stick.

You're kidding, right?

It's fine.

Use this:


My front fender, my side fairings, my windshield, my skidplate, my passenger footpegs, my luggage rack, my exhaust fairing, my crashbars, my PIAA light cages, and my rear brake cylinder cover plate are all sprayed with it.

Not an H1, but how about this? Spotted this one while at work. Completely covered with Rhino Lining or Line-X.

Been through several drops, three crashes, and two major mud puddle baths.

I wish I bought stock in the company BEFORE I purchased the bike.

It's really good stuff.

(wear gloves and a proper repirator if you can.)

I first started using "trunk spatter" on my 4X4 off-road trucks back in the early '80s -- that was before spray-on bedliner was available, I think. Go out, bash the truck on rocks and black timber, bring it home, and "pound to fit, repaint to match" in my garage -- just the bashed parts and it always matched. Switched to bedliner -- any brand, roll-on or spray-on -- when it became easily available and because it was more durable than the water-based latex trunk spatter. I have it on my current '76 Chev 3/4-ton 4X4, but I don't have a photo -- it's too ugly to make a photographic impression, sort of like a vampire has no reflection in a mirror. Personally, I woul'dn't put it anywhere on my red 'Strom, but maybe that's just me.

nope but had mine powder coated glossy black and it looks great, looks like black porcelin.
I like Line-X in my pickup truck bed it is really nice but on my bike, ick. The finish is so ruff that inless the rest of your bike looks like sand paper it would stand out like a sore thumb. Plus it fades after time in the sun.

Did mine right after I got them. A couple of light coats, so not as textured as a bedliner would be. I like it that way. No problems w/ anything scratching the finish yet.

i've heard that the textured bed liner material is a real bitch to keep clean, too. still, if I bashed my KLX I wouldn't hesitate to coat it with the stuff since washing it is my lowest priority.

Someone said that this stuff helps keep things quiet. I was kind of wondering if a rubberized coating would tame some of the vibes from the Givi bars...

Any thoughts?

Black Lab: I do like that spray on stuff... I can't read the brand name in the pic though. What's the stuff called so I can try to find some? If I do my bars, It'll probably either be with that or Herculiner.

My old SV was painted in cheap bedliner

Looked post-apocalyptic without gauges. Only color was the white (marine vinyl) seats.

But that bedliner covered 'strom looks tough as hell. It's got me thinking...

I used it on an ABS tool tube/footrest on my KLR and on my Strom's heat shield. Both applications worked well in spite of the road splatter onn the tool tube.
