Hi all so a bit of backstory and stage to show you how the universe conspired to get me what I wanted lol.
I had a green 2017 KRT, which I loved. While having it the 19'RR was released and I totally fell in love with its looks. Im a huge fan of the kawi green and that one really is as green as they go really. I went to the local Kawasaki dealer to ask about it and the price here is just awful, its price was around 48 grand. Yes, here import taxes are terrible.
I paid 22g for what I had, so it made no sense to ever bother with that so I just forgot.
A few months later, my 17'KRT was stolen and got 24g from the insurance. Great !
So here to Uruguay, only 2 18'RR and 1 SE came. Of the used RR was for sale and managed to get it cheap for 22g (its brand new price was 36g)! but black, which honestly I dislike but I wanted something better than what I had so I went for it anyway.
I noticed I could at least in theory, convert its looks to the 19' since all the other parts matched perfectly.
I checked the oem price for all the green stuff and the price was just crazy, and that was without even counting the stickers and tank so I ditched that idea.
About a month after getting the RR, I had my front tyre lose grip and had a low speed drop, my fault for trying to go "Rea" with cold tires on winter.
Notice the small dent in the tank, it will be relevant later.
I used my insurance to get it fixed and the deal was, don't paint anything, everything must be new and they agreed.
