Handlebar housing restoration
This little project involved removing the handlebar housings from the handlebars, degreasing, sanding, repainting and reinstallation. After reinstallation the throttle, front brake and clutch needed to be readjusted. It was also necessary to remove the gas tank for this project because the front brake master cylinder is under the tank. While I was at it I also removed, sanded and chrome-painted the mirror stems which were badly pitted. The hand grips were also replaced.
Here are the "before" pictures.
After degreasing and sanding they look like this:
...and then the parts are primed and painted. I did not paint the interior of the throttle housing because I did not want paint build-up to interfere with the throttle action.
The parts are then reinstalled on the motorcycle
