painting my bike questions

Ok im geting a realy good deal on a r6 that had been layed down and there was no frame damage but everything was replaced like all the plastics. The only thing is that all the plastics are difrent colors. My dad has a spray both in his cabainet making shops with all the spray guns. I was wondering how hard is it to get all the plastics off the bike, like evrything that i would need to paint. If i do do this im going to paint is powder white and get a smoke shield and put it on it and all black yamaha stickers. I think it would look prety sick if i go threw with it.

It's not hard at all to remove the fairings.....why don't you go with a mild to wild paint scheme?

Thanks. The bike is a 2001. How much would a smoke shield cost and smoked headlights do you think?

Do we have to do all the research for you? Go to ebay or speedwerks or motodepot or dennis kirk or any other bike part website and compare prices.

thank you for welcoming me. But no I didnt ask anyone to research for me. I just figured some other people on here have purchased shields and headlights so maby they could tell me the price range they payed.

Check out www.r6messagenet.com You shouldn't have a problem finding any info regarding your R6. Fairings are easy to take off. Just be careful not to break any alignment tabs taking them off or putting them on.

Just start removing screws...its not hard at all. If your dad has a spray both then he must be able to take parts off cars. The bike is WAY easier!

Smoked speed screen is about $40-$80 depening on what you want.

Smoked headlight covers... DON'T! You need your lights on a bike. Both so the cages see you and so you can see. There needs to be a bit of safety trump card played here!

yeah, that would make for a bad day.

I am just messing with you pulsar, seriously those sites I gave you would be a good place to check for any type of bike.

www.denniskirk.com
www.motodepot.com
www.speedwerks.com
www.newenough.com
www.ronayers.com

all sites.
