What type of clearcoat is good to use on carbon? I have sanded part of the crankarms on a SRAM XX crank and want to clearcoat it to protect it. Are there types of clearcoat that can damage the nude carbon or interact in a bad way with existing clearcoat that I defenately should avoid?

No protection needed.

You could use any clearcoat, wax, or leave it "bare" - the outside is still epoxy resin, quite similar to better 2k clearcoats BTW...
