Hey guys,

i want to get a couple parts on the NRS changed from chrome to black but not sure which would be the best to go for.

I've heard that anodising is stonger.

Also some companys that do these would be great too (in the uk for course)


Thanks

Which parts Mark? I don't think steel can be anodised and I can't think of any chrome plated alloy parts on a NRS.
I've had my brake lever and gearchange black powder coated and the finish is pretty tough.....

haha it is the brake lever, gear lever and pegs. ive seen the price for aftermarket ones and thinking it would be cheaper to get them recoloured.

So powder coating is the way then? got any pics of yours?

Best I can do this early on a sunday morning.
As my NRS isn't really an NRS anymore you could always take the easy option and send me £40 (the cost of the powder coating) and your controls and I'll send you mine in exchange.
Not seen here is that the gearchange arm and the splined arm that fits onto the gearbox output shaft are also powder coated.
If you decide to get them powdercoated locally don't forget to remove the plastic bushes from the brake and gear levers first....
In the pics are reduced reach footpeg mounts - they're not included in the trade :)

Look alot better black, its ok there are plenty of powder coating companys around here, just didnt know if anodising or powder coating is the way forward.

had my hand levers and foot levers + belt guard done at local alloy wheel refrub place charged me £40 the lot !

just take out the hard plastic bushes from the foot levers with a socket +hammer , when you get them back just sand the inner holes of levers for overspray grease and refit bushes !

Definitely want to go with the powder coating. Anodizing and dyeing to a consistent color on the castings in question would be tough at best and the gloss would also be an issue. A good powder coating will hold up well and will look much better than dyed anodizing.
