I got all the front facing sections of the painted lowers clear bra'd today!  :P


This guy that did it has mad skills, he applied and cut as he went, it was really cool to watch.  :chugbeer:


If anyone in the PNW needs custom clear bra work done on anything I totally recommend this guy!  :thumbs: :thumbs:

I had him do all the forward facing sections of the painted lowers, it came out great, from a foot away you can't even see it, I tried to take some close up pics for you to see the edge, very sano!!  8)

Nice J!

I was a bit worried about that area just behind the front wheel. I see that you've got it covered.    ;)

My Lord, I think your bike is the closest think to perfection I have ever seen!...Looks so much better with the lowers in green!

I must say, I really like the look with the lower fairing painted to match. It makes the bike much more "sportier". I wonder what mine would look like painted...

Thanks brutha's!  :chugbeer:




Me and Gumby are heading home now after spending this past week at the National, my ZG won for best C14 there AND for best overall bike at the National! Me happy.  :)


The Kawi green delivered, folks enjoyed seeing it in person rather than pics, in person that paint just really pops!  :thumbs:

They even asked me to park it in the hotel lobby at night time, nice!  8)

That is the shape of the piece behind the grip, so that is the shape they had to make the grip.
