SSR Triple Tree Nut

Every day I ride my 300 to work and I look down and see that silver triple tree nut and HATE it. Silver does not belong there, everything is black! On eBay I found the SSR triple tree nut and they offered a black one. So I bought it.. I think it was $30 after shipping.. Install was easy, I dont have large metric sockets, but a 7/8" socket fits the stock bolt perfectly. And then for the install of the SSR bolt I wrapped it in a rag and then used a 1-1/4" socket and was able to get it plenty light with zero slipping or damage to the bolts finish.



For $30 I think its a great little mod just to make the bike look a little bit better..

Considering the nut is normally never touched for the most part, I will whip out the black Plasti Dip and see how it takes. Will post some pics this weekend for opinions.
Went the cheap route today and Plasti Dip my nut, did I really say that :D


Took about 40 minutes and 4 coats of Plasti Dip to cover. Best part it used 1/5 or less of a can that cost $6 here.

Just to add, with the Plasti Dip I only had to put paper to cover the handlebars and gas tank (2 minutes of taping) for the overspray. When I finished I just peeled the excess off and a perfect removal around the nut.
