I used honda factory parts, and had to grind a shoulder off. Powdercoating probably shouldn't hurt anything, but it depends on the metal (I would guess - I'm no rocket doctor). However, this has all pretty much been covered in the Ervins thread.

My spacers were honda part number 51497-MEL-D20. I beleive the desired dimensions are in the Ervins thread, but I want to say they are 5mm thick, and I can't recall the interior/exterior measurements.

Where can i find spacers for these for my '05? Or what can i use as a spacer.

Also curious if powder coating them will cause and kind of mechancial problems being baked in the oven?

Coating wont cause them any problems when done correctly :thumbsup: thers nothing inside that will be effected by the cure temps..

I just picked up some washers from home depot (zinc plated so they won't rust), figured out how many I needed to make the pads clear, and spray bombed them black. no one knows the difference, cost about 3$ total

Can you better explain the grinding needed to be done to these spacers?? Is it the backside of the spacer or the lip on the bottom of them?

I used the stock bolts with the 5mm spacers modified as shown. Part number 16. Grind off the shoulder pointed to by the red arrow - the part that comes in contact with the forks. The other side fits into the spacers.

I just held the spacer with a pair of vice grips and used a table grinder - marred up the sides that I grabbed, but I don't care.
