With respect to tearing down the motor, I would vote yes, regardless of what condition the engine apears to be in its over 40 years old, and every Guzzi 750 / 850 I have been through needed new valve guides at a minimum and just about every one of them (six engines in total) needed a pair of main bearings, big end shells and a crank shaft grind. Rear main crank seal, rear main bearing gasket, clutch kit etc, is most always needed. Steering head bearings, swing arm bearings and all the wheel bearings and seals are typically replaced.
Ok so I've decided to powder coat the frame after all... now just need to choose the powder. The frame is stripped and hole for the pins are blocked but do I need to block off all frame holes, just threaded holes, or don't worry about it? I'm planning on powder coating the headlight bucket, lens, and the ears. Should these more delicate parts be chemically stripped rather than sand blasted before coating?
Once you vapor or bead blast one component you kind of have to do it all, but its worth it.
I have maxton in my forks, I love them, but they wouldn't ship to the states, I had to have them shipped to my father in UK and then have him ship them here. PIA
For those who have powder coated their frames, should a clear powder coat be added after the base coat? The powder coater told me no but I've heard from friends who did do this to protect against staining and UV protection.
