Ive been thinking about doing this to mine since i bought it, been told theres a really good place in RUSHDEN near WELLINGBOUROGH, i think you have to remove all the bearings etc in the frame or seriously cover them up, not all that dear either got quoted from 75 to 120, the bikes do look good with it done though.

We opted to have the frame painted, cost £50 plus 15 for swinging arm, must say bike has 33 hours h&h events on it now and only one or two chips around foot peg area, which is easily touched up with remained of paint.

Hi Stormie

I had my old 525's frame powder coated black at a place in Rushden - they did a great job, it cost £40, the only problem is that they don't do blasting, so I had to get the frame prepared elsewhere - for that I used a bloke at the Piggery near Bozeat.

This is the place:

Powder Coating & Stove Enamelling
Sanders Lodge Industrial Estate, Rushden - 01933 355 348

Cheers
Andy

You need a special tool of which ktm charge £27 I think its socket with three notches which sit over the internal notches,I managed to make my own out of a piece of 15.mm tube with 3 slits cut out to sit over grooves,once you get this to sit on just turn anti clockwise to loosen and hose connector can be removed along with tube which runs through the frame hope this helps..Andy.
