Do Not use a flapper wheel or any type of grinding material!! you will create a way out of round hole which will introduce dirt into the bearing along with scraping your part. Chemically strip it with a small wire brush.

Don't get me wrong.....I like these guys because they know their with thumper motors and dirt bike suspensions. I guess this is why a lot of other shops don't work as the middle man as if they customer isn't happy they have to deal with it. I was looking it over just now and the steering neck shouldn't be that hard to clean off especially since the races go in first. The one Im worried about is the lower shock bearing in the swing arm because that PC looks thick in there......Ill find out tomorrow though....

Looks like they are going to make it right

Bad thing is they have to do this to all thier bikes they get back from the powder coater. Told them if the PC guy took an extra 10 min to tape it off it will save them hours of work!

Yep, they need to have a talk with their PC guy. Jesus, just mask it off.
