anyone found a replacement for this radiator pipe?

I'd love to swap out the silver pipe, the one I believe it's carrying radiator coolant?

pipe on left side of engine, seen here


anyone found a black or other replacement? yes this is purely for aesthetics.

Perhaps a can of auto trim paint is the color.

I would suspect that you could order that part - the 910R is black, as well.

Get another silver one and have it powder coated or spray it black. Go to Sherwin Williams and get a can of either Krylon gloss black or semi-flat black, depending on the look your going for. Wipe the pipe down with lacquer thinner (to clean it), let it dry and shoot it black. Dont use the ultra-high temp paint (1200 degree) as it tends to be a flat black. Dont use lacquer if your using anything other than Krylon.

Just rattle-can it black, matte black, or red... like rsduce suggests!

Or have it anodized, that'll look nice!

Wife21, I am impressed that you responded so quickly with the picture and you don't even own the bike....

I think it's time for you to have a bike too! don't you want one?
