Grab handle paint
on: 09 Jan 22, 08:54:15
Hi all.

Got a 2017 Black model which has developed a hole in the paint on the grab handles.

Anybody ordered that black paint?

Thanks.

you may get away with the halfords satin black, ( i have used it in the past ) applying light coats, failing that i use  rs paints   for the correct paint

Thanks Keith.

Now..how to avoid getting the paint everywhere.

Remove handle or mask the shizzle out of the bike. Hmm.

It's just 2 bolts = remove the handle, refit the bolts, clamp to something else and spray away :028:
