I don't know if this would be any help to you guys, but I found this video on YouTube this week. Maybe they can source you some things.


And happy Thanksgiving, all!

Pull them off & have them powder coated.... By far the most economical way to get er done !

I had to buy the plastichrome parts in black, had the stock pipes ceramic coated, ordered the Rivco Aeropegs in black for a little comtrast....also had the timing cover powdercoated. Pretty happy with the look. Now I need cruise control !

Your Valk is very sharp, nicely done!
I never priced the powder coating, although assumed it was very expensive. I remember a guy who had his heal toe shifter powder coated and I was shocked. Could've bought a brand new one for the price of the job. Certainly an option worth checking into.

As to powder-coating cost, I had my two passenger grab rails done in flat black. (On my black '14 bike they came in a silver, painted finish.) Cost me $40 for the pair. Thought that was very reasonable. I had originally thought to just buy two new ones from Honda (the black ones from their blue bike), but I quickly got educated with the asking price. Powder-coating was the way to go and they are more durable than the finish on the original grab rails.

Some shops ARE ridiculous but other aren't too bad at all .I found a "hot rod" shop that do a lot of headers to ceramic coat my pipes @ 75.00 each. I'm more than happy. Had a guy powder coat my brake pedal & timing cover for 30.00 . Shop around, lots of guys doing it these days.

I painted mine with high temp paint. I read that powder coating valve covers runs the risk of warping from the baking process.
