Plastic Component Repair and Re-Texturing

Yes those scratches and gouges can be fixed. View the before during and after pictures of the mirrors below. In real severe cases, the plastic may need to be fill welded before repairing can occur. We have fixed gouges and scratches in other plastic components as well.

If you are interested, please take several pictures of the mirrors or other parts you want fixed, from several angles along with closeups of any damaged or noticeably scratched areas and e-mail them along with any questions and we will give you a quote if we think the parts can be repaired. The amount of damage determines the amount of repair costs. An average cost to repair mirrors with a moderate amount of scratches is approximately $125 Canadian.

After the components have been repaired, we highly recommend periodic treatment with Forever Black instead of other products that have silicone in them. Treatments with silicone don't last very long. Forever Black is a permanent dye formulated for plastics.

Handlebar Control Body Restoration

With age, the OEM lettering on control bodies wears thinner and narrower as shown on the "Before" side of the picture below. OEM applications are a silkscreening process on top of the final coat of paint and are prone to such wear. The process we developed accurately reproduces the lettering that was on the control bodies. The parts are fully stripped and refinished. 3 final coats of clear are applied over the lettering to significantly add protection against wear and give the look of the OEM parts. The sheen will be matched to your original parts. This process provides a long lasting (virtually permanent) finish which outlasts OEM applications. Price to restore is $210 to $230 depending on the amount of lettering on your control bodies and covers all parts of the control bodies for both sides of the handlebars.

Please view the Decal section for each model of motorcycle to see if your models' lettering is available. We don't have the decal set you need? Please contact us. If we don't have your set available, you will be eligible for our Decal Assistance Program. If you send us your control bodies, we will give you a discount on the decals and restoration cost.

Do it yourselfer? This will take about 4 hours of your time plus all the finishing, abrasive materials and equipment. For instructions on how to perform this task yourself, please request instructions. Instructions are also included in your order.
