I'm a Kwak green fan, so I think it looks neat.

I don't know you, so I have no idea if it fits you or not.

I could drive it, but don't think I will repaint my 09 C14 tomorrow.

i like it but it looks just plain green if that makes sense, maybe some pin strips or or just a touch of some other color here and there

I like it...   Add a black pin stripe to the green and a matching green pin stripe to the black and you got it.

That's funny.  I'm getting ready to paint one same color.  I already bought the paint.  I'm going to paint the wheels dark smoke and some other items black.

Actually this is not kawasaki lime green metallic. It has a few coats of a lime green pearl base, a few more of a yellow metallic, then a couple coats of a green metallic. The bottoms were painted with a gloss dark charcoal. After all that it was cleared.  My pic doesn't do it justice. In the sun the yellow is present. It's a cool color and I really like it. I'm just not sure if a Redneck ike me and a bike like this goes together. I will not repaint. If I decide I can't take this color, I will just sell it.

On the old board there was a posting with several pics that were photoshop edited with various colors.  The two that I thought looked best were a darker yellow metallic and a pearl white.  Both with darker bottoms.  I don't recall which member had done all the edit work and posted the pics though.

I remember that. I actually used his lime green as my model. I was aiming for a Kawasaki green, but sort of went a little away from it. The guy who painted it usually does vintage bikes and Harleys, so he likes makin custom colors.

That looks REALLY sharp, Hotdog! I'm with the others that are Kawi-green affeccionate! I am also with the others that would do another black stripe...what I would do if it was mine is run an inch-and-a-half stripe of the same black as the lowers (flat black?) up the fairings to cover (camouflage) the fairing screws and continue the stripe on the tank and curve it down to the front of the seat....now THAT would be even more bad-a$$ than ever!

I like it, but then I like "loud" colors anyway.

Were I to be in need of repainting a major portion of my bike, Id paint it Nuclear Pumpkin, aka Pearl Blazing Orange from the 03 Z1000 and other orange Kaws that year.
That color is amazing, if you like orange.
By far my favorite, though my yellow VTX looked pretty darn cool too...
Say what?
