    Engibe cleaning/finishing

    I am having my side cases, barrels, head and rocker cover vapour blasted - back to original as possible appearance. Is the best way to preserve this "new alloy" look to have them lacquered or painted with "alloy colour" engine paint?

    No need to worry about road salt or rain as it will be "dry miles" use

    Hey Mark,

    My understanding of the process is that the blasting closes the pores of the aluminum.
    This helps to keep things nice & shiny.

    Finishes such as this will last a very long time but with road salt I'd be less optimistic.

    Original cases are painted silver so that might be your best bet long term.
