    Happy New Year all.

    what is the correct colour for the front mudguard stays, mine were a light grey colour, with what looks like a PO attempt to tart up afterward with silver. Is the light grey original, 74 Hi Rider

    Oh, I have painted my gearbox silver after etch priming, and it looks great, I am doing the crank cases and the head, after reading more usefull info in this site, but what about the inner primary, it is hard to tell if silver was applied, and a small part of this case is polished. Any knowledgeable assistance greatly apreciated

    Cheers Richard

    Coorect colour is grey, I had mine powder coated silver and then polished them with a cutting compund which changed the silver to grey. Nowadays you should be able to get a grey powder coat so no need for the polishing.

    Thanx for the confirmation Kommado, but why on earth did NVT paint the stays and guard bracket grey & not silver like the other non black parts, just curious. Was it left over stock?

    Cheers for now
