I am thinking about switching colors this winter from Plasma Blue to '06 green, and was thinking about whether I should just paint the existing body, try to set up a trade, or sell it and buy a brand new '06 body.

If I went with the sale route, what should I ask for flawless blue plastics, every single piece, with a cowl, screen and gas tank?

I really have no idea where to start...here's a pic, well....because I like pics.

I'd say around $1300-1500 for the complete set. If you don't get any bites at that price then you can work it slowly down.

I switched my from Solar Yellow this year to black. I paid 850.00 for the black set which I purchased from a forum member and then I turned around and sold the yellow set for 750.00. How else can you get a 100 paint job. I recommend finding your new set and then selling yours since you will then have an asking price. I thought about a custom color but I really liked the idea of buying replacement OEM pieces down the road if I needed them.

I would think someone would trade blue for green if nothing else just for a change.

I WOULD like to keep the blue set and have two, but I would probably just end up selling the other set eventually anyway. I may offer it up for trade in the the Sale section sometime in the next few days.

You can buy a brand new set of Kawasaki plastics off Ebay painted in any color you want for $1500, so that might be a little much IMO. $750-$800 sounds about right to me.

His comes with a tank and is stated OEM pristine. It is worth what I quoted, trust me, I've bought a new full set before and paid more.

Yeah, for aftermarket ABS...yuck.

I saw that link on eBay for $800, that's probably about where I'll start..I have the solo cowl too, so we'll see.

I found a green tank in Seattle for cheap, proably sned my brother to buy it and then I'll start looking for some plastics.

I had great luck trading out complete tank & all plastic set for 08 zx10

traded my black for green & the trade overall worked out great !


I was quoted 650.00 to paint everything
& also I had priced out all complete new tank & plastic = 1500.00 OTD
could have probably sold all my black stuff for 800-$900 max realistically

a trade is going to be your best deal IMHO if you can find someone to go for it !

The aftermarket kits just don't do it for me for the most part...sure, they may be close to OEM, and maybe most poeple can't tell, but I can. It's OEM or nothing if I decide to do the swap.

I think I am going to try to piece a green set together over the next month or two, then see where I end up.
