Suzuki GSX-R re-spray new colour

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by Lament, Feb 5, 2016.

  1. As the title suggests. Anyone have any recommendations? I've got an 07 Suzuki GSX-R. Bike is looking a little weathered, and looking at getting it's color completely changed to get that new bike kind of feel.

  2. I'm liking this thread already :).

    Don't do a Matt black paint job looks shit and also don't do a rattle can job either .

    I used photoshop to see what colours looked best on mine before I spent a huge amount of money doing my wheels.

    . It's going to cost a couple of grand to paint it candy.
  5. He asked for ideas, nothing about budget. I gave him one.

    Personally I hate custom painted bikes. They scream out " I've been in a massive bingle and my original paint was toast.

  6. Where are you is a starting point, I would think. I got my bike completely redone in Sydney for $800 but that doesn't help you if you're in Bundaberg...
  7. Well considering it seems you can buy a whole new set of fairings minus the gas tank for around 900$. Anything round that price that includes the gas tank and I'll be interested. Would be nice to change it to a blue colour that's not too common.
  8. ... What's that multi-coloured stuff they put on show cars? Costs a mint, but every time you move a few inches, it all changes colour... Looks sensational, on most things anyway...

  9. You mean the Chameleon paint? That screams late 90s to me. A nice subtle pearl would look better IMO
  10. Try full chrome paint job - not sure I've seen anyone gaudy up a bike like that yet!

  11. I went pearl white with dark grey accents and some carbon fiber bits a couple years ago, with metallic blue logo.
    If you have OEM fairings get them painted, Chinese fairings although cheap, are cheap.
  12. It's a bit confronting... Apparently this is vinyl so can be taken off

  13. now that's ugly, looks like a cross between a Transformer & T1000 gone wrong.
  14. They're not the best looking bikes to start with. I'd say it's going to take a while to sell.

    I liked suzukis black & blue scheme

  16. Vinyl wrap in wood panelling design ;)
  17. Somewhere, someone with too much money and a completely is constructed sense of style and taste was bound to have done it. Well done for tracking it down. Dubai or America I'm guessing
  18. Unfortunately.....

  20. New bike feel? I think you actually just want a new bike ;)
    All paint will do is make you pedantic of every raindrop, scratch and stone chip

    If you decide to sell generally a slightly weathered bike will be more attractive then a resprayed bike without a good excuse.
