Finish on Triple Clamp?

Recommended Posts

What is this finish issue on my V11’s triple clamp? Is the finish a silver paint that is peeling or flaking? Any ideas on how to restore or rectify this? 

Thanks

I had to strip a black painted triple clamp when I converted to handlebars. 

Pull the triple and strip the paint, starting with a chemical stripper, then using a gentle blast media. I had a friend do it who has a blast cabinet.

Polish it, then clear coat.

Yes, that is an aluminum triple clamp that was painted silver. You can chemically strip it, or you can use media blasting. Then either paint it silver, or black, or clear coat it. If you left it raw aluminum it would tend to corrode. Aluminum is funny when it corrodes, it doesn't rust but it does get a hazy grey corrosion.

You can anodize too if you want. I did this on mine.
