    Right under my nose...

    I've been looking online to find replacement plastics for the new bike since I knew I was going to buy it. The front fairing bought thru the local dealership from Kawasaki would cost over $600.00. Ron Ayers sell the aftermarket piece for over $500.00 for front fairing and over $200.00 for the tail section. Plus, I'd have to order stickers from Kawasaki. So all this time since I started to look to bring back my bike to "almost new condition", I knew I could not afford buying all the parts at once and probably not right now either as that kind of money doesn't come around too often these days.

    I had the perfect solution, right under my nose. I don't know how I didn't think about it before. My neighbor, right across the street from me, the house RIGHT IN FRONT of mine, does body work and paint jobs on cars and motorcycles for a LIVING. That's what he does all freakin day! He even did a few sport cars on the side in his driveway, under a tent he bought. So as I realize this, I go across the street and ask him if he would mind to come and check the bike....oye...a miracle happend.

    He looked at the damages, and he told me he will do a full repair AND custom paint job on the tail plastics for $150.00!!!! Unfreakinbelievable. The only thing is that I'm gonna have to wait a few more weeks to ride as he's gonna do the job on some evenings after work or on the weekends, and I don't want to ride the bike with no front fairing. He's gonna remove the stock stickers on the tail since one side is damaged anyway, and re-do custom colors of my choice with flames or any simple design I will come up with. I am so excited and so happy!!!

    By the way, anyone here got some ideas, links, etc. that can show me exemple of SIMPLE designs for undertail plastics? For the price he's charging me, I'm not gonna have him do anything complicated. I'd like to use silver color, to match the existing lines on the gas tank and front fairing, and I would like to maybe add some pink.

    Thanks for the link!

    I've tried a few drawings, I'd like something that I won't see on any other bike...and so far this is my favorite, with just a little bit of pink, nothing exagerated, I kept the silver and white as it is on the gas tank:

    you should be able to take that to a place that does signs and decals and they could cut a vinyl decal of it for a resonable price
