Hey,

I wanna change my bike over to black eventually but I’m guessing fairings would be a lot of money from the dealer!

paint em., those few pieces prob be like 400-500 bucks for professional paint job. I did it on mine, the black had silver flake in it, they put silver flake on the blue I painted, was a good match.

can pick any color you want. only thing different is they removed the Suzuki decals on the bottom belly on mine because, well cant spray over them. I preferred the bike without the Suzuki labeling myself, but you can re add Suzuki vinyl if you want or decal.

I've been recommended a paint job a few times, but once you go down the route of buying the decals and lining them up etc it's probably not much cheaper and a lot of hassle vs just buying the fairings?

what do you mean, it took me 15 minutes to pull off the fairings. 15 minutes to re assemble.

I mean its 1 decal. it isnt hard, id just buy Suzuki vinyl, 5 bucks, last lifetime of bike. can pull them off easy enough. I liked the look of the Suzuki being gone, theres a badge right on the other fender with Suzuki emblem. lol

its just a sticker. nothing hard about it

I'm looking at getting an air compressor soon, so might be worth spraying them myself.. thanks for the affirmation it's an easy job.

im not a painter by any means, but the work I got was beautiful. I got 1500 off the bike so 500 for a paint job to make it mine was not big deal. if they messed it up, I would just tell them redo it lol
