Hello, does anybody have experience with powdercoating final drive? I don't like idea to disassemble the whole thing but worry, how seals survive high temperature in owen.

Much easier to clean it up and have it sprayed if you don't have the skills to paint it. Just clear coat it and it will last a long time. Just my 2 cents

:yup:

It's a lot to do when paint will look as good and cost less.

When I got my frame and parts powder coated, I got the pipes and swingarm ceramic coated matt black. It must be more like spray paint because it was fine to do it that way, although I don't remember the details now. I definitely didn't take it apart.
