I'm with ya, an entire set of bodywork in CF would be beyond sick!! If only somebody would offer that as an option...  :(

I'll have to just stick with some bits here and there...  ;) :) :beerchug:

Hey man, I hate to break it to ya, but you way overpaid for that piece.  That's A-Tech equipment, and I found a great website for all their stuff here....http://japan.webike.net/ps/#!search&p.sk=2&p.ref=product-search&p.b=10&p.m=5926&p.p=2.  Check out the prices they're offering these for. Too late for that thing, but if you want other stuff, now you know!

Sure, if you buy the zx14 fender.  But the concours14 full twill fender is only $269.22, and it looks to be the exact same thing.  Look at the Concours stuff!!! It's the bike you own haha!

Ok, finally an update on this...  ;)

It took 3 tries to try and color match that neon green from the wheels that I had powder coated up last fall, but I'm happy to say we finally got it!!  :)







I just stopped by the painter to check out the progress...  >:D

The badges are all done in the color matched neon green and ready to be be applied to the side mids, side tails, and trunk lid tomorrow!  :great:




The fins on the vents of the inside mids came out perfect IMO!  :great:






I went ahead and brought those pieces home since their done while I wait on the badged pieces to be finished up, also had the lowers paint matched to my black.  :great:








Turned out the light.... and yep! They glow in the dark!!  8) :49:

Yep, use a heat gun to get em off, the toughest part is after painting the new ones you have to use an exacto knife to trim them back out, then it's just peel-n-stick.  :beerchug:

I love my 09, but if Kawasaki did a 2015 in the same blue they used for the 2014 Ninja, I THINK I might have to go for it.  That blue is incredible.

When you get bored of this color, I get that shield.  Please carve my name on it.

Let us know how it works. It looks like the perfect shield for the 100 degree days. Me want one.

Love the black and green so far. You should get some parts dipped to continue the carbon fiber theme


  I want to do black with blue accents next winter if I'm home for it.
Also interested in the screen. What screen do you have on it now

Thanks MD!  :beerchug:

Black-n-blue sounds pretty cool indeed!  :great:

I've been running the CB shields, tour for winter and mini for summer.
