im looking to find pictures of one that has the lower fairings painted and the rear hugger and the little black fairing all painted the blue to match to see if it looks good. thanks for any help
Like I said, I am going to wait till I get a one piece belly pan (which will necessitate the use of the Akra link pipe) and paint that...The boom-box cover gets VERY hot, so I think normal paint wouldn't last too long on it as it comes, and I think that's why Kawasaki didn't paint that piece on the green/white/black '09s even though the rest of the lower fairing is green (it looks dumb IMHO).
My proposed solution will be to get (or make) a link pipe with brackets to eliminate the boom-box but keep the cover. I believe the reduction in size and mass and the increase in distance from the hot parts will seriously reduce the heat put on that cover, allowing that sexy blue to hold up on there as well as anywhere.
