I exclusively used VHT clear on various bits of my old blue DR650 Ashley.....and after that beach ride at the Coorong I could tell which bits I didn't clearcoat.... :D :D :D :D

Amazingly the ally bashplate still looks like it's wet even after 25k.

Didn't work on the header pipe heat shield though....matter of fact, nothing did. 4t's get a hell of a lot hotter than a 2t pipe.




Cheers,
Chris.
