See if you can identify which parts are painted (post factory) and which parts are powder coated.

Hints: all are visible in the photo - one is cold painted, ten are powder coated. You've gotta look carefully!

There is a prize for the most accurate list.

Exactly!

So, the front cowl is paint, obviously.

The powder coated parts you can see in the photo include:
1. Front wheel
2. Rear wheel
3. Top half of the valve cover and
4. Lower half of the valve cover
5. Rear lower cowl
6. Spoked hub of the rotor assembly
7.
8.
9.
10.

Any more guesses?

The final answers are:

7: Brake pedal
8. Foot pegs (hard to see, I know)
9. Fork brace (Traxxion)
10. Centramatic wheel blancers (really hard to see, but powder coating them makes them look so much better.

Thanks for playing!
