Painted fairings= crashed bike, just something to consider if you plan on selling the bike one day.

I agree with samantha. I would buy some scratched fairings for cheap instead, and then paint on those. Id hate to paint on new fairings.

If you're looking for OEM schemes, can't you just google it?
If you're looking for custom schemes, doesn't that take away from the "custom"?

Do your own thing man, keep it original...

Do what you want to your bike! I wouldn't spend more money on fairings when you have a perfect canvas right in front of you; but that's my opinion. Research and pick out what you think looks best. Come up with your own ideas put them on paper, draw your bike and make copies then color to your liking.

Re: Post pics of your gsxr fairings

While painted fairings do equate to a crashed bike it is also your bike and you are the one that knows what you want. I don't see where it would hurt the resale value to the extent that it would that noticible as long as your title is clean and bike is straight. It is not like you bought your bike to make money when you sell it. You bought it to ride and enjoy and make it your own. That being said here is mine and I have a blank template somewhere to help with color choices.

Looks good, but it is a 2008.

If you're going to post in the wrong thread you need to hit these three as well: 05/04 600/750 and 00-03 600/750 and 11/12 600/750.
That should get you maximum exposure.

good point

AT LEAST 95% of the parts between the years interchange unlike the 04/05 and 11/12
