Painting aluminum, R60/6

Can the perches on a R60 be painted and if so how does one go about painting them. They are looking very rough
Also is there a certain kind or type of grip for this model I want to try and find as close to original as possible

Prep them real nice with scotchbrite pad. Prime as needed. Spray with matt black paint. Simple enough.

I prefer DupliColor engine paint products for this...fuel resistant and tough.

Yes, What Diablo said. The only thing I'll add is you might want to use a Zinc chromate etching primer for best adhesion. It should be available at any decent autoparts store.

I've using VHT Rollbar black paint. covers nicely and has a slight sheen to it. Magura grips look the part.

Grips can be had (original looking) for a little less than BMW prices from Beemer Boneyard. They are the same grips used on the /2 and /5 series.
