Hey all just wondering if anyone can tell me what the little plate thing is, above and to the left of the engine mounts ...



I tried to get it of but the only bolts that will budge are the ones that aren't connected to anything .. so I thought I'd just leave it but upon polishing that side of the frame the mop just can't get close enough and it looks abit of a mess .. :/
Does it have a purpose ? Nothing was connected to it when I got the bike ?? I dunno if I should try get it off with a chisel and abit of persuasion or just leave it and give it abit of colour??

Also the engine mounts, iv been thinking of spraying them black. In my mind it will look good altho a few people have said otherwise ??
Any thoughts? ?

If it's fightered or the engines being painted too it'll help draw the attention away from that casting

As you say? It's personal choice

Can anyone offer any guidance on the best spray to do the mounts on the frame cheers smile

Will halfords own do the job? Or I noticed hammerite do a range of sprays ? What else is there?

Be time to spray the engine soon. Halfords VHF spray will do the job for that too won't it ?!

Thanks again

Think I would get the plate off if I didn't want to add a steering damper and put some Carbon frame covers on to hide hole.
Or you could get them Tig welded.

Hey Des, I seen that post what popped up then removed
I did want it off originally, but I have thought of getting steering damper and now if that plates on for that purpose.
Plus iv sprayed a few bits today and pleased with the finish so I think il keep it now.
