Was washing the bike and had an Idea. Ive been thinking about this winter diamond cutting my cooling fins on my own. but in the mean time I thought hey ive got a bucket full of clean water, why not san these down to polish? So I used 600,1500,2500 wet and thier starting to look really nice. thought I'd catch some air and type this out. now back out I go got to get ready for bike night. Love making thoes harley guys jelous as the ladys love yellow!!!!

You da' man! I have seen some guys do it on other bikes but not the 109. It looks great but I'll be honest, just too much work for me to do!

:bow:

Take some pics of your work. :bigthumbsup:

Ok I tried a quick shot with the sun directly behind me. Can you tell which jug I did? If you can see it in the pics then when it is in front of you you can really tell. I'll have to buy a dremmel attachment to use the jewlers rough and polish. for now that is just sanded to 2500.

Looks like you did the rear jug, and it does look nice!

Any idea on how to do diamond cutting? I saw a bike with diamond cut fins at a show earlier this year and I'd like to give that a try myself, but have no idea how to do it.

who ever finds out first will share. I work in a production machine shop and the hole grinders just throw our the small grinding wheels allready glued to a mandral, I thought these would be a good start,thought i would get some 3/8 in thick alum. and give it a go.

i was thinking of having the jugs diamond cut this past winter, but just didn't want the extra down time. it looks good if it is done properly, but i think it can also make the bike look tacky if done incorrectly.

it looks like your rear jug was the one you worked on. it looks really good. nice work. :bigthumbsup:

That rear jug looks good. Victory has been doing the diamond cut jug for a couple of years now.
