KTM LC4 Exhaust Refurbish
« on: September 07, 2019, 07:36:30 pm »
Hi I have a KTM LC4 with a rusted exhaust manifold and pipe. Does any one know where in Cape Town I can get it refurbished, probably blasted and polished,or how i can restore it myself?
Thanks in advance.

Wire brush fitting on a mini angle grinder, with occasional squirts of WD40.

Take it off the bike and have it ceramic coated at Powerkote in Montague Gardens

They will blast and clean before coating and then polish after coating - will look better than new after and stay that way forever

Does the ceracote stop the mud from baking onto the headder?
