Anyone ever swap color panels on a v-storm 650?

    Just doing a bit of wondering. Probably not worth the effort.
    The blue is not bad, but a grey or even black would be a bit more stealth when touring.
    Has anyone done anything like that?

    Try the stromtroopers web site. I tried it myself, wanted red or silver for my fox orange.

    Front fairing piece is a PITA to remove though. Tank ones are easy, sides not too bad either. Fleabay may have some used ones too.

    You could also try spraying them with Plasti-dip. Easy to apply, easy to touch up if it gets marred or scraped, protects the original finish underneath, and easy to remove if you don't like it. Lots of tutorials online. :thumb

    Plasti-dip or vinyl wrap. Why the stealth requirement?
