Cool Bought this 636. Paint Fairings green or no?

I have always wanted a Ninja 636. Now I am deciding if I want to paint it or leave it blue? Maybe Green or flat black with green racing stripes. Looking to use it as a track bike. A little help since I have never done a track day, and I am looking forward to doing some soon; learning to lean more in the twisties. Any advice or help is welcome. Thanks!

Based on your brief history here at GDC...
Just wait until you crash it, then you can paint it whatever color your lil' heart desires.
You'll have plenty of time to decide on a color while you recuperate...

Thanks! I am leaning towards the flat black w/ green accents. If If I go green I want a lime green, but a little off as to not totaly look like the origional Kawasaki Green. Maybe close.
Still learning the ropes on forums. Appreciate the feed back.

If you're gonna paint, go with something custom.
Forget the stock stuff, go with something you design.

Flat black is so overplayed. Try something new, and original.

A thickening skin is a good sign. You will need it.

Me too. Blue is nice and that bike appears to be in great shape, why paint it?
If he would get it done professionally, then maybe, but I doubt he would.

Flat Black... Screams out "WRECKED!"
Go ahead though, murder the bitch out and ruin something nice. Buy an El Camino and put 24s on it too! Make sure that you hit up Winco and get some corndogs wiff dem food stamps first!

Yourbike isn't a 636. It's a normal 600....
Kawi made the 636 from 03-06 and just brought it back for this brand new model. Id keep it blue or trade with someone to get the green, original kawi.
