Well. I just spray painted the passenger rear-sets of my bike wit black rustoleum paint. I did the heat shield on the muffler years ago and it has yet to show any chip or imperfection. I always wanted to "murder out" my bike and make everything black.

I could not get the front rear-sets off. Or I should say one bolt would not budge and I kind of started to strip it. So, I'm going to paint it by taping the area around it and then spray it with my paint. I have to pick up another bottle of paint tomorrow and its raining so I should get it done.

You guys know I'm good for pics. I have posted before and afters before so I will post them up when I have a chance...hopefully tomorrow.

One thing that is on my mind is that there is a set of bolts for the entire bike on ebay in which you can get any color and I'm temped to get the black set. But after stripping one bolt I don't know if I feel like doing this.

Anyway, I know at least one member here blacked out his rear-sets and it looked awesome. So, I hope mine will look alright.


here is the post about my heat shield...

I'm with you on the blacked-out controls and brackets. I've also done my levers and a few other bare or silver items on my SV.

The heel guards on the rearsets get beat-up pretty quickly if you wear boots with hard plastic armor. I did mine originally in about 2007, and re-did them a couple years ago.

We have done the brackets and controls on most of our bikes, including our 250 Ninja and R6 Raven.

You will find that the paint isn't going to hold up too well on areas where there is any contact.

I did mine in powder, which is a lot better, but still can be removed eventually with abrasion. Powder coating requires removal and complete disassembly, media blasting, chemical treating and masking - so it's not a small (or inexpensive) project. This last time I coated the heel guards in a texture powder to try to get more abrasion resistance. So far so good.

Luckily for me, and my boys, the cost is just labor as it's what I do for a living.

Everything turned out well. The rear-sets have some chipping of the black paint but I still am happy with what I did. I will have to touch up the rear-sets every now and then. If I had to do it over I would.
