GL1200 Smoothed Valve Covers


I wanted to use the prominent valve covers of the boxer style motor to set off the look of the bike.  I filled in the “1200” indentation along with some of the other OEM indentations to give the valve cover a smoother look.  By preheating the valve cover I was able to power coat it.  I chose to use some satin black powder coat.  There were a few spots that need to be sanded out and some other areas that need to have some additional fill and then another layer of powder coat.

Here is the valve cover after using some aluminum filler rod to fill in the recesses.
