I spent some time (and dollars) blacking out my 250r, but I could never get the nerve to paint the exhaust. That looks like a nice job you did there. I think the black can was a good idea by Kawi, they should have gone the whole way with it!.

Yes,, I'd like to see how a black-painted can would hold up.

I think Kurt is referring to the 08-09 250's. They came with a polished muffler. They changed that in 2010.

I also don't see the point of painting a can black when you can just get a stock one and toss it on there. Mine's sitting in my spare bedroom...lol
