  1. That finish looks great. No big deal that the match isn't perfect - they're going to look awesome on the bike. Powder coatings will hold up fine on engine covers, as long as they're rated to cure in the 375-400 degree range. Once cured, it takes a considerably higher temperature for the finish to soften up. I've powder coated hundreds of various engine covers over the years and have never had an issue. Valve covers probably get the hottest and I've never had a problem with the finish failing.
  2. When I finish up my latest project next month, this bike is next to start working on. Besides all of the usual stuff that it will need, the bodywork is being repainted with new decals. (already half done) I understand that there is a CBR wheel upgrade and that there may be a write-up for it somewhere here in the forum. After 15 minutes of searching with no success, it would be great if someone could point me to it. Thanks.
  3. Beautiful bike and beautiful wife. Your wife is a saint - do not ever underappreciate her!
  4. I'd say that the gold dust looks the best of the three. I'll check with one my suppliers to see if they have anything similar, but I'd say that Prismatic has come pretty darn close. I'll be powder coating quite a few parts for my VFR750F in the coming months, so if that one comes out nice, I'll have to get a pound for myself.
  5. According to Kemp, it should be re-jetted, snorkel should be removed, and a K&N filter should be used. He will provide the re-jetting specs.
  6. Kemp is a great guy to deal with. I have a SS exhaust coming from him for my CB1100F. Several guys from the 1100F.net forum that I ride with have Hindle exhausts on their 1100F's. They look and sound awesome and are a great value. How often do we get lucky enough to have someone like Kemp develop custom exhausts for our older bikes? I intend to get one for my VFR750, but I need to get it in good running and riding condition first. In the meantime, I love the way this system looks! I'm leaning toward the high mount version. Very sexy!
