Paint frame rubbing off solution
« on: December 03, 2018, 09:27:23 PM »
Hi guys,

After only 5000km my black frame paint is starting to rub off on the shifter side.So i decided to fab up some frame protectors.
When i used to do motocross we would use skateboard grip, since this issue was so common on most models after a couple of rides.
You can get a failry large sheet for like 5$ and they come in many colors and grip intensities.
So if any of you have the problem its and easy fix for cheap.
Check it out

I have discolouration and mottling of the black paint (not sure if it's from rubbing or not) on the frame spar above the section where speedy has his skateboard grip. Is this common?

R&G has also something similar, albeit the price is higher: https://www.rg-racing.com/browsebike/BMW/S1000XR/2015/EZBG104BL/
