Not a lot, if you prep it. Wheels are usually around $150 for both out here.

Well, if you get a stainless pipe, it will blend in with the sets and rear pegs nicely. I'd keep them the way they are IMO. I saw a black 1K w/ coated sets and rear pegs that looked good, but the paint was also black/dark grey, so it looked cool. just my thoughts though.

I powdercoated mine black as well as anything else I could unbolt and disassemble. I did add a prismatic additive that changes color depending on the light. You can do it yourself very easily. Startup costs are minimal.

BTW. if you roll around with the solo cowl on, i'd just take the rear pegs off. they're pointless to have on when the cowl is on and you can have them back on the nike in no time if you wanted to take someone for a ride.

I think it would be sweet... I also think that a colormatched blue rearset would look ok too but not as hot as the all black...

It would look more sleek...

Take the rears off if you rock the solo cowl. Pointless for the pegs to be there.

I had a friend do mine. I like the way they turned out even tho I don't even have'em installed. I don't usually take passengers on my Gixxer tho.

BTW
I only paid $30 for the job.

That would look sick for sure. But get a CF pipe not a stainless. That will really look sharp. And lost the passenger pegs.

If you're willing to wait until the powdercoating shop is running the color that you want you can usually get it done much much cheaper than having them done by themselves. My dad gets stuff powdercoated all the time and said that he could get my wheels powdercoated for $40 or less this winter if I'm willing to wait until the shop is running black on a larger order for someone else. If I were you I'd just call around and say that your willing to drop the parts off and wait until they're running black and see how cheap you can get it, I bet you can get them done for $15.

BTW, I'm with DL the best option is just taking them off and only putting them on when you need them (what is it 4 allen bolts or so?). I'd take mine off when I'm not using them if the exhaust wasn't bracketed to the right rear peg...

Make or buy a bracket.

the only thing I could mount it too would be the swingarm and I don't think that's a good idea. anything else would look the same as having the peg on there.

Bolt a bracket to where the peg bolts up. Ditch the other side. Problem solved.

The bracket that I would have to fabricate wouldn't look much different than the peg bracket. At that point I might as well just take the other side off and leave the existing bracket holding the exhaust. Nah, I'll probably just leave them or have them painted when I get my wheels done.
