General refurb advice
I am still tinkering with my 888 SP5 and am going through it bit by bit to rebush and replace bearings etc. throughout where necessary. I have noticed that the yellow stirrup (swingarm to suspension rocker) has developed rub marks from the heel of the last owner's boots - probably due to a combination of the factory rearsets and a Charlie Chaplin style foot on peg position.
Also the Ohlins rear spring has a hair line crack in the coating. As these are both the same colour I would like to refinish them at the same time and was thinking about powder coating, but am concerned that this may crack due to the flexing of the spring - any wise old sages out ther with any relevant info.??
