Thats good common sense talk right there. Also what i have found is that when you try to polish the metal up to either paint or anodize the metal really shows itself for the quality it is. If it wont polish up, it wont anodize.

I wrote to a couple of places that offer kits for anodising and both stated that results can vary a lot depending on the metal quality, given that forks on the Kat aren't exactly top quality it's a fair assumption that the metal used for the lowers might not be the greatest quality. Think I'm going to go with polishing and applying a clearcote of some kind and will resort to getting them powder coated if that fails!!
