All the parts catalogues I've got (B1, B2, C1, C2, C3) show the same part number: 43007-1139-DM

I would therefore suggest that gold anodising is the correct finish. However, there could be some variation I am unaware of! Also, there are possibly limitless numbers of shades of gold, so it may help to find an original part in good condition to use as a sample.

Regards,
James

re-anodising old aluminium is not easy, has anyone done theirs successfully ?

there are some nice ceramic coatings available that could replicate the original colour, if we had a good sample to match

Martin has refurbished the torque arm very successfully previously, if you can see it in the photo's of my bike it is excellent

43007-1139-DM Rod (torque), gold

The odd ball is the Ebony x Metallic zeus blue
Which has s silver anodised arm
43007-1139-FL Rod (torque), Silver-No.1

All others (B/C/D) are a medium gold

Colour Anodising is just a electrical dyeing process to the fluffy outer layer of material.

It’s also interesting to see that 43007-1139-FL is only fitted to C1, the parts manual shows no ‘quantity’ for that part under C2, surely meaning Zeus were C1 only.
