    The hoses to and from my rotary valve are very hard and look to be oversize from their original configuration. Have you guys changed yours out with something locally bought? The price of the hose from a Rotax parts supplier is ridicules. 
    Thanks

    Im not sure on that. My bike pipes hold up to chrome plating. Question is would it be time and cost effective for something that hides under a cowling?

    I took my stuff to the local sandblaster / powder coater and they said they have a product that would hold up to 1200 degrees. The flame beyond the Egt probe get hotter than 1200. Not by much but hotter. I figured I would have them do the main muffler and lower mounts in their product and I would paint the manifold and 90 degree joint with the VHT product.

    If you do build your own doors these colored rivets come in real handy to make thinks look clean. Amazon.com

    I got the doors finished tonight. I learned a great deal about reskinning these doors. The two sides 3M tape worked good. I painted the borders with the Fusion paint for plastics. It sticks real well. These door were a lot more work than the windscreen. I’m happy with how they turned out.
