I have PRM side bars powder coated black. Had I to do it over, I would not get the powder coat. They are currently full of mud from yesterday's ride, but they don't fill up so much that they interfere with shifting or anything.
as a heads up, if you are looking into Pro Armor Fat Peg nerfs I have found a Site that has them for under $300 for the set. I picked a set of the black and Now am waiting on Shipment. They seem to have a Few things for the XX.
