SATO RACING 'GOLD'
Important info about our GOLD-anodized parts
Aluminum anodizing is an electrochemical process that increases the thickness
of a passive, naturally occurring, protective aluminum oxide film. Without this process,
regular aluminum will corrode and become weak. Anodizing provides protection from
these effects. One known drawback of anodized GOLD is its tendency to fade with prolonged
exposure to UV rays. Since this does not affect the primary purpose of anodizing -
corrosion protection - Color fading is not covered by the Sato Racing warranty.|
|Customers should also be aware that most GOLD Sato parts are anodized in a unique tone that we call 'Osaka Gold'
(deep and vivid, with hints of orange/ copper) that likely won't be an exact match with other anodized
gold parts you may already have on your bike, especially from other manufacturers. Additionally, due to variations of the gold tone between batches of parts that are anodized, replacement Gold parts could be a slightly different shade of gold than the original part. Sato Racing
will not accept a warranty return on a GOLD part that the buyer decides to return solely because
they are unsatisfied with the shade of gold. New GOLD items that have not yet been installed can be returned but there may be a restocking fee of up to 20%, particularly in cases where the parts have been removed from the packaging and handled.|
So if you decide to go for the GOLD, it should be with the full understanding of these limitations of gold anodizing.
