Powder coating recommendations?

Recently got a 2019 Honda CB650R.


Its a pretty bike, but a little powder coating would make it gorgeous. Hoping to do the rearsets, passenger assembly, shock spring, and exhaust shield. Pretty much everything not black in this picture.


Anyone know of a decent shop in the Vancouver/Portland area?

Unless you carry a passenger, just ditch the bitch sticks, and there are some rugged hi temp paints out there. Comp Werkes will help you replace those atrocious footpegs, (but they look like they are sure glad to see you), and check out HF for DIY PC kits. Have seen some rubberized wheel paints that look pretty cool and will last pretty good I hear.

PC is the absolute best if you have the $$$.NIce bike, love the exhaust header.

Thank you! Only reason I haven't done anything to the passenger assembly is for slide protection. Same for the rider pegs. Might do high temp on the muffler shield to save some money. Not trying to ruin my oven though haha. But I dont mind spending extra to have the rearsets done right. Might try the wheel paint as a temporary fix on the shock spring. Thank you for the input.

You might want to keep at least part of the passenger pegs as tie-downs for luggage, if you're so inclined. I'm sure you can ditch the footrest part [just a spring-clip, no?], and keep the luggage hook after re-coloring it.

Those really are good looking headers. I'm not sure I've seen them stand out like that in other images of that bike. If there's a titanium unit you could get, man, that would look cool after a few heat cycles.

Not a bad idea, I'll cross that bridge when I start looking at saddle bags. I wish I could get a full exhaust. Going to wait until the warranty is up, by then I'll be bored/not broke and add a power commander at the same time.
