yesterday i purchased 2 wheel bearings for my front wheel. and i thought to myself, well im taking my wheels off, why dont i spray them...then i thought, why dont i spray the whole bike:O. So this morning. (Thursday 9th April) i went down and baught some paint and primer. and got to work.
So here is my step by step process of my bike project :)

Basicly, i have performance parts on their way (check my sig)
and now this is my visual finish :D

Started This morning at 11.30 :) Stripped the bike:

tip for the next time you do the wheels: remove the sprockets and brakedisks and spray them sperate.

Put some normal bolts in the holes where the bolts for the disk and sprocket go, knock the wheelbearings out and mask the bit where the bearing sits off, wen your done spraying wait a little till the paint is just dry and remove the bolds and the masktape.

If you wait till the paint is fully hardened out (or spray over everything) and than remove the bolds the paint will crack and chip off.

There's something about the white that doesn't look right?

Wheels look good though, nice one.

Cool.

Would have been easier if you had removed some stuff like the screen and mirrors, and as Patrick said about the wheels.

Looks quite nice to be honest mate.

Dude really you really should remove all the bolts wen repraying, now if you ever need to remove them the paint will chip and crack wen you undo them all around the bolts.
And wen you drive the panels flex a little while the frame doesnt so much so thats also enough to cause the paint to crack around the bolts.

Its easyer to unbolt something and just screw some old bolts in there to protect the tread from the paint than masking everything off like the mirrors etc.
And it looks better also wen the bolts are sitting on the paint instead of under it.

Well. i tried taking the back sprocket off...and a head snappped :O

their all seized on. selling it in a few months so not my problem.
it was much eisier maskng them off. didnt reli want to snap anymore heads.

and then the mirrors, couldnt get the spanner up in their, so masking was so much easier:p

Good Maintanance or just simply cleaning it once in a while saves you a lot of trouble later.
And dont use a Highpresure cleaner for that because that will blow water into bearings and seals and and blow the oil out of everything.
Just a bucket with warm water, soap, sponge and a brush.

Not really funny to be honest. When someone bumps you, you won't be laughing.

init, iv been bumped bare times, im actually use to it, but iv bumped someone once, but its cool, my runner was kinda bodged back together, but was sold as spares or repairs, so lowe it, plus my mate saw him a few weeks after i sold it riding it in colchester haha!

but yeh, it will be embarrasing when you get someone knowing there shit, coming to see the bike and show you up. :crowbar:
