    Painting side bumpers?

    Anyone have any good luck painting their oem plastic bumpers...
    particularly from a 750 SXI Pro?
    I plan on sanding, bulldog adhesion promoter and then finish like a urethrane car bumper
    Anyone tried it before?
    Thanks!

    Plasti-Dip. Works OK but not so much when fuel gets on it.

    I've used Dupli-color spray paint specific for plastic before on dirt bike side panels. They have a adhesion promoter to apply first after roughing the surface then spray over that.

    I've had alright luck with rattle can paint for plastic. You will want something that cures somewhat soft so it doesn't flake and fall off. Unfortunately the rattle can stuff I have is not very tough and it will wear off quite easily.
