I am removing the vinyl wrap off the GSXS tomorrow, going to paint shop and asking if they can paint it grabber blue same as car with the same kind of flake in the current gsxs paint.

If its less than $500 I will do it on the spot, the vinyl on the front has a little peeling in places, just blah.

was fun, learned a skill. but paint >>>> vinyl. and id like metallic flake like oem, and it will be one of a kind. do I have to remove the SUZUKI letters or do you think they can use a power sander and eat it off?

Didn't get a chance to get the paint shop after work, just going to ride bike up on Monday and showing them the pieces on the bike before I tear it apart.

and yeah.. I like blue..

I didn't call and ask, but I assume they will paint it Lol. why wouldn't they? Question, theres SUZUKI decals on the Lower pieces, do I have to remove those or do you think the painter can just sand them off with a power tool real quick? They are a PAIN in the ass. Im not sure if they will tell me I have to remove them beforehand or if they can do it.


Didn't even get to ride it with the blue vinyl. bummer. I only spent 40 in wrap, and like 10 hours wrapping Lol. no big deal.

600 dollars for the paint job. Just dropped pieces + my oem matte black cowl to be painted too, 2 weeks or so. Cannnnnnot wait. They are adding the pearl to the paint to match what was on it and so Itl compliment the gloss black sparkle too.
