Bored waiting on my cbr mot... Frame's a bit tatty on my 200 EXC, anyone re-painted theirs and what would they reccomend? Job for the winter, going to strip bike down and clean her up when I've got the engine out.

PJ Paints used to do KTM silver, but stopped doing it a while back. I went to one of those mix & match paint shops but the guy was a myopic SOB, bloody green would have been closer to the silver he reckoned matched the frame.

A lot of peope tend to powder coat the frames, and from what I recollect the "paint" on the original frame may be powder coat anyway - it's tough stuff but flakes off in lumps when rust gets behind it, particularly where the pegs are.

Was thinking it might be, either power coated or dipped... How much stripping out is required for powder coating? Bearing wise? Which ones (assuming all) need to come out the frame?
