How to remove PC from bearing surfaces

Just got my frame and swing arm back from the powder coater. Noticed that the bearing surface areas were not taped off and now I need to remove the powder coat.

What can I use to clean it down to the surface with out removing the metal surface?

I would think a flapper wheel would do the job. Looks like a good job other than the painted bearing serfaces. Who did it?

"aircraft remover" will take off powder coat but it's a little hard to control where the edges will be

This is one of my biggest pet peeves.. you have someone else do your stuff and you end up having to go back for one reason or another. I'd tell them to blast it off as well. What a pain in the .. sorry dude..

I had EBR (middle man) do it...Im not sure who did the job though.....Only reason why I went with them is because Ive seen their race bike PC jobs and they came out pretty good. And their KTM orange is spot on unlike a lot of other ppl.....

they don't do in house power coating....they send it out....guy over the phone says their tech usually cleans up their sponsored bikes before reassembly.....maybe they don't know that its the Powder Coater who should be prepping this instead of them wasting time

I guess since you went through EBR, its different. but if I took something to powder coat, I wouldnt assume he knows what needs to be taped off and what doesnt. or at least have a conversation, these are bearing areas, these are ____. etc.

You are correct but most powder coaters usually know this ......just like stated above its their job. I paid a primo price for these services and their power coater is not new to powder coating frames and swing arms.......Ive had a lot of stuff powdercoated and never had an issue until now....

If they don't make it right, this.

But it's going to be hard to get into any sharp transitions. At least it's not hard anodized, that is a pain.

I wouldn't use a flapper wheel of you decide to do it yourself. Paint stripper is really the best option.
You don't want to mess up a bearing area.
Maybe, if you're super careful you could use the flapper wheel to remove some of the thickness and that will allow the stripper to work faster.

That's a bunch of , especially coming from a shop that says "With thousands of hours building and testing every major brand of MX bike we know how to get the most out of your machine"

They wouldn't let that slide on one of the bikes they were working on. They just don't want to deal with it, or lose hours fixing your.
