awe shucks... thanks Jeeps. Yeah thats my baby alright. you can see more pics here.

which reminds me, i need to load those pics up into the gallery. Think I'll do that now.

There lots of things you can do. A braada concepts solo cowl is one thing.. get rid of the stock katana emblems, paint the belly pan to match the rest of the bike smoke or mirrored windscreen, aftermarket exhaust, chop off the shovel (fender eliminator) , illumiglo gauges, fibre lyte dash, etc etc.

The pic of N4S's katana was just to give you an idea for graphics, and paint. I'm sure. i would say just go with a custom paint job and you are good to go. I have a custom marbalized dark blue with PPG blue pigment sparkle in mine right now. It gets SOOO many looks and compliments. However I am getting a new custom paint job later this year.. same concept but silver. I got to see a preview of what it will look like over the weekend..ahhh sweet I can't wait.

edit>> the first dark blue SV in my signature is my bike..you really can't see the custom paint on it unless you see it in person. Under floresent light it really sets off.

You titled the thread GSX???
We just assumed you meant a GSXF Katana.

As for the GSXR What kind of body kit are you asking for? Do you need replacement parts?

The only other body kit I know of will make it look like a Ducati on the front but, You can get race stuff (factory look) for allot less.

I get my paint jobs done for free, but I will have to pay for material this time..but my painter said a custom paint job like mine runs $3500.00 Guys with goldwings and harley's are paying well over 5000.

Depending on what you want. Paint and graphics will coast you any where from $200 to maybe $10,000. Id ride that thing for a while before thinking about anything like that.

You can get a full set of OEM style race body (with or W/O holes for the lights) for less than a grand but, it will need paint.
