The amount of prep you do depends on the shop you choose and how much you are willing to pay. I had my wheels, handlebars, all brushed aluminum engine covers, foot peg brackets, and maybe a couple other things done at a high volume powder coat facility for like $150 (probably off the books), but I had to do all of the prep work. Then I had all the chrome engine covers done at another shop for $200, but they did media blast the chrome and do all of the prep.

RCOLIGAN2,

I assume to remove the shift rod end clevis, you have to take out the ring clip/circlip.

How the F?

Everytime I use something to get in there it just spins around and there's no way I'm getting two flatheads in there.

Tip?

Remove pinch bolt, then lever from shaft. Don't P.C. shaft. On the shift rod end. Remove the nut,then the rubber boot and you will see how to remove the clevis. Don't P.C. the "ball" or the removed parts. On the foot peg mount remove the shift lever bracket and foot peg. Don't P.C. the foot peg retaining pin or through hole or any bolts, nuts or threads.

The easiest will be circlip pliers available at auto parts store.

FYI, the place I got all of the cheap powder coating done was called central iowa powder coating in Hubbard iowa. If you are on the south side of the cities it is probably only a two hour drive. It's probably not worth it unless you are doing a ton of parts, but it could be worth the trip.

Didn't work. Broke 2 pairs trying and bent 4 metal picks.
I know the sumbitch will come out, but man is it tough.

I'm leaning towards not doing the part. With all I'm doing, I don't know that I want to fight it that much.

D*mn! It's been a little while since I had my eyes on it. Wouldn't have thought it was that bad.

Truth: I had a Harley Certified Mechanic over at my place the other day. I asked him to bring his ring remover. I let him try it for about 30 minutes.

He couldn't get it.
