    i'm thinking of having my wheels painted gloss black, and would want the engine, clutch casings painting to match.

    Has anyone had this done before? Whats involved in remving them? am i right in saying the oil will need draining?

    is it cheaper/better to buy some street triple ones? Any idea on what to pay?

    you will need to drain the engine take the covers of then when you come to refit the covers you will need to put new gaskets on also. I have had the engine on my 06 675 sprayed black, got the guys in my local Triumph garage to take the engine out last winter, Andy the foreman got the guys to strip the bike when they were not busy, and a local guy sprayed the engine for £150,

    I'll spray them for you for £150
  4. I painted my engine covers Satin Black for less than £35.00 including new gaskets (see my gallery photos for more images).
