    Has anybody managed to match the colour of the control plates (where your foot rests fit) - mine are both showing wear and I'd like to paint whilst I'm doing the gear linkage.

    you can't buy happiness but you can buy a motorcycle - which is the same thing :-)

    I had the same problem but instead of repainting it, which wore off again, I put a self adhesive, small carbon fibre patch over the area.   I bought it from Halfords, a local car parts shop.   I'll take a photo tomorrow.

    Hi Phil - sounds interesting.

    I was going to paint and then cover with clear wrap but I'd like to see what this looks like.

    same on mine (2013) amongst many other parts. I grinde away all the paint and ended grinding with sandpaper 1500. Therafter I polished with the machine. Now these are the only shining parts on the Trophy. Quite a job but looks pretty good.
