Complete S2R1000 restoration
 
Just finished my 2006 S2R1000 restoration. Started last October and finished it this August. Frame is Jolly Rancher Red translucent powder coat with Chrome powder coat base and Clear Vision top coat. Wheels and swing arm are Ink Black with Clear Vision top coat powder. Used prismatic powders. Full suspension overhaul and finish by Racetech. Very proud of the finished result.

Fantastic! Love the color combinations, not overdone.

A lot of thought shows. Very, very nice.

Thank you. I am very proud of it. Came out even better than I imagined it.

Very fancy.

I had a frame and bits powder coated, it was done in a two part where a white was partially melted then a pink was put over that and the 2 colors were finished up. The white was to make the pink really bright.

Powder coating can be quite thick and I noticed some spots were very thick with the 2 color coating, you did 3? How did that lay down for you?

I did not do the Powdercoat myself. I had a shop in Syracuse do it called Rim Doctor. The translucent red was a little tricky for them but they ended up doing a hot coat where they had the frame in the chrome base powder warmed in the oven prior to applying the red and it came out beautiful. It is a little tricky but the frame number is still legible. I requested they only put the clear on the inside surface where the engine mounts so I could sand it down easily and have good contact for ground. I walked them through what to mask off on the other parts so I could avoid figment issues.

I'll bet the red was tricky. Sounds like the pink I used. It was clear in the bag.

As well I used a shop and like most powder coating shops, they do black all day everyday. Lol. So when they got the white ready to accept the pink they didn't know what was going on when they applied it. It became very much a wait and see game as to how it came out of the oven. There was a spot they doubled up on the powder when they realized they couldn't really see how it was laying down. Then they shrugged their shoulders and let it rip.

Mine came out really nice but you could tell it was a learning curve for everyone. I'm glad yours worked out well for you.

Actually that is why I chose the shop. They actually had good experience. But they had not done many frames. The gas out kept happening at the welds on my frame. They really did an awesome job. I will be doing a little more radical Monster build next year and I will definitely be using the Rim Doctor again.
