I had a GYTR bumper powder coated black to match the arms. I was surprised that the shop here in Havasu had it done in two days and only charged me $20.00 to do it. Is that average for something like this? I figured it would have cost more.

I didnt really like the bumper personally until I seen one up close(not just in mags or pix). Im gonna get one for mine since I tweaked my Alba bumper in the wreck I just got finished rebuilding from :(

Keep it up Crapper and I'll start posting pics of your golf course home and your big ass carwash, your stereo business and your coffee shop. Then I'll tell everyone that you sit in your big office watching the peasants in your kingdom scurry around on one of your 11 cameras.

Lots of times a powdercoating operation will do that kind of pricing, or at least the respectable ones will. Black is common, and items usually go in the oven on a rack, so if they were already set on a black job, adding yours in with the batch is of little cost/consequence to them, provided there is room for your item(s).

Do an odd-job item or color, and I bet their prices/rates go up, and understandably so.

It can also help to get your friends/cronies in on it as a full rack is about as costly as a partial rack is to process.

Looks good, BTW. I went for regular aluminum on mine as it conceals scratches, etc. very easliy.

Looks excellent. I have the same SE model..except not a dune monster like yours. Just curious, what are those rear tires like on pavement? not that they're meant for that...but sometimes ya got cross the road and stuff, just wondering how they work on the road.

Also, like the front shocks you have. Do you have the matching back one? I couldn't find anything on their website about the rear shock.

If I ever come to some pavement that needs to be crossed, I'll let you know. I can't imagine they would last long in anything but sand.
As for the rear shock, I guess it is pretty good stock. But like anything, there is always room for improvement. I have noticed most people seem to concentrate on the front end; don't hear much talk about the rear shock.
Honestly, I put about 20 minutes on the bike before I did the upgrades last week. I'm not going to have much to compare it to other than my wife's bike which is stock. I am 3 days away from knowing a bunch more about it.
