Powdercoating and brass bushes
« on: Jan 05, 2017, 11:02:56 »
I am prepping my CB 360 frame before it gets powdercoated and I'm unsure about whether or not the brass bushes in the swingarm need to be removed or can the just be capped off like the other bolt holes.

Will brass survive the powdercoating process?

nope..  make sure they are taped off in the coating process.   Most Pc'ers will know that

Brass will survive and the bushes can be masked off. For me it is not that hard once the frame is stripped to go ahead and remove them to do a proper PC job. I plug the holes with silicone plugs and after coating I take a vibratory sander and sand smooth the ends of the openings where the bushings butt up against. This is much cleaner than masking and if you only mask the face of the bushing you will end up fusing the bushing to the frame or SA.
Now would be a good time to replace the worn bushings anyways.
