I did my side covers a few years ago. Eventually the paint started to peel around the air clearner. It was easy enough to peel off if I wanted to repaint

It is holding up very well on my Scrambler wheels. Did the flat black belly pan on my daughter's CBR in white plastidip spray. Very happy with the result.

So what is this stuff? Rattle can spray paint? something you have to brush on? something you have to have a big old bucket of and dip the parts in? The link posted isn't clear?

It can be applied any of those ways Nickwiz.

I've used it only by dipping the handle ends of some pliers, years ago.

I have never sprayed or brushed it though.

I had seen it used as a tool dip years ago but I used the rattle can spray. The Royal Enfield site had some pics of a Chrome C5 that a member did the whole thing in olive drab, then peeled it all off. Fun stuff. It sets after a few days. If you don't like the results you just peel it off. No need to mask the wheels as it doesn't hurt the tires.

How did everyone prepare the surfaces for spraying? Just the same as regular painting involving rubbing down first and then the plasti dip primer or regular primer?

I've seen it on Ebay and Amazon UK and i'm thinking of ordering some so i can do the wheels and other bits and pieces when i get my bike. I know people will advise to take the wheels off to do it, always the best option, but as in a previous post it says no need to mask tires, so do you think it would be possible to cover forks, brakes, swingarm etc and do it on the bike as it peels off so easily? I don't have the tools or a space apart from a busy street to do the work. The joys of inner city living.

The process is the same for a motorcycle...There may be one on wheels, I don't remember...but this is what I followed when I did my fork lowers...
