Front fork color change?

Is this possible? I'd like to switch from the gold color to either black or silver. What methods are there to change this?

I believe the stock gold is anodized so you would probably have to get them anodized again.

You can powder coat them, the anodize will polish right off (need an actual buffer), or you can paint them

I just took a look at them and decided that it looks to be a huge pain in the arse just to get them off. :mad:

I'm thinking to either pay someone else to do it or skip it altogether. I'm not that mechanically enabled.

Damn right. Gold forks are ugly :fact

Companies should stop making them and start anodizing forks based on the color scheme of the bike. Is never give up my black forks.

Yes, 06-07 forks are just a little shorter in length (10mm)than 08-10 R6. Refreshed meaning new fluids and fork maintenance since I race my bike.

Are your forks flushed with your top triple?
