Here are some pics of my bike. I have been making a few changes to it trying to make it my own. The rear fender has been removed, the windshield was painted black as well as the exhaust can and heat shield, red wheels strips were added & the "ninja" and "kawasaki" decals have been replaced with red decals to match. Let me know what you think.

Very very nice.

Totally unique without being too over the top. Proof that less is more.

That looks great. The black can makes a big difference, and the red touches are perfect, sharp but still subtle.

Just joking with ya, Big DADDY. Thought it was funny to see your post while in the middle of painting my own the same way. I felt like Neil Armstrong sipping on some Tang just to turn around and see someone else take the first step on the moon, haha.

I'll post my pics soon, I think black on black should have come that way. I don't like chrome on black, why would you put a chrome exhaust on an all black bike? But she's all fixt up now, baby. Go Team Black !!! "Stealth version" ;D

I have the Scorpion 700, I like the ease of changing my tint shield to clear.

I totally agree with you MadMax. Think the stealth look should be "factory option". The chrome just looks out of place on the bike. Think the "bling" belongs on the candy colors.

What type of paint you using on yours? I used Dupli-color high heat 1500 degree black (3 coats) & Dupli-color 500 degree clear engine paint ( 1 coat) to give it a little shine. Once you get past the mind-set of painting the part & worrying about messing up, the finished product is WAY better than I was expecting.

Just ordered my tinted shield, but I have removed the clear just to know how it works & your right, very easy.

Thanks to all the rest of you guys for your compliments, nice to hear that if you take the time out to work on something yourself it makes you feel good about it, but to have others think it looks good is even better. :D

I used 1200 degree high temp, bought from walmart for around $6.84. I painted the whole exhaust 2 coats. It'll smoke the first time you run the engine.

I agree that it turned out better than expected, it's better than buying a high dollar aftermarket exhaust.

xthrice 89 - Yes your correct, it is the stock screen. I just removed the screen, cleaned it, & use Krylon black paint that is made for plastics on the INSIDE of the screen that way no scratches from bugs or road debris. Made multiple light coats so I would not have any runs until I had it the darkness I wanted. (If you make multiple coats, you can kinda have a faded tinted look to it that can be seen through if that is what your looking for, mine just blacked out completely). Just make sure the paint is for plastic or it will not stick just flakes off.
