    Thanks for the compliments. It's rattle-can bedliner from PepBoys. Sprays on easy and it's tough stuff. I dropped that tank when I was carrying it across my concrete driveway and it didn't even scuff.

    Man, that looks good on the 640 adventure. I like it :thumb

    Have you had any problems cleaning the surface, after the fact? I figure a stiff scrub brush ought to do the job...

    I ended up with some broken plastics this weekend and am considering some bedliner on my F650GS.

    Let's see pictures of the bedliner on your bike. :evil

    EDIT: just read your reply to the same question a few pages back...thanks!

    +1 on the spraycan sucking! Which one is the roll on and how good is it compared to professionally applied liner? I ask because I'm thinking about doing my Dodge pickup rocker panels. It's a dark blue truck, so the black would blend in well and no more worries blasting down gravel roads. Can you get a good finish with roll on? will it sag on a vertical surface?

    thanks..

    Kinda lost track of this thread, but thanks! Never thought of the trouble of aerosols via air-mail. You got a point there!

    None the less, I'll find out fees at the US postal site

    The thing is that pick-up trucks are not very common on the other side of the big pond, and as a result procucts related are not common too...even the manufacturers that sell the products in the US dont have the same productline overseas..

    Bringing the parts to a workshop is possible, that'll set me back a $200 or more for just the tank......naahhh

    To be continued

    Cheerza!

    maybe I'm just a cheap #$$%, being a KLR owner and all--

    but I don't get the idea of buying these expensive, alphabet-soup bikes, and then painting them black bedliner.

    At least stick with the "look at me, I bought an overpriced bike" colors :D

    not because I care about KTM- but because I like orange, and it's my team's colors. ;)

    Hard to plead cheapass when you list 6 vehicles, including a 2006..:poser

    and doubly hard to bash alphabet soup when you have KLR, XJ, GT, ZJ, R, etc.. :lol3

    :huh ??:huh

    FYI:A used 1997-2000 BMW F650 costs $2500-$3500.

    Most everyone here had the choice between:

    1) colors they don't like
    2) damaged plastics or bodywork
    3) knowing that they would soon damage their plastics or bodywork

    A new paint job is $200+. Then you adventure ride your bike, and wa-la, you're back to the damaged plastic. Now, no worries about plastic. Only worries about the ride.

    "Bike are like women, they are meant to riden, not looked at.":rofl

    Actually, I may have said that.

    But my brother with the 55lb head, did say this:

    "A bike, sitting in the garage, is worthless to me.":clap

    Don't be afraid, Jeepmaster, go ride! Your KLR will have a whole new opinion of you.
