Hey, just got a Mean Streak 1600 last week, was sitting for a few years so figuring out a few mechanical gremlins. Besides that, the color scheme for this vehicle is, unfortunately, metallic orange/chrome with a tan wrapped pipe/seat(already changed out). I am wondering the best option for a recolor. Is there a semitransparent paint I can spray over the orange to alter the color, if not anyone have painting tips to share regarding their experience? I also would like to black out all the chrome, suggestions on how to do that would be appreciated.

There is a rattle can product to black out chrome made by Dupli-Color called Shadow. I've seen it used before. Honestly, it looks about as good and any other cloudy spray paint job on a vehicle. Unless you get it done by a professional with pro products, you're going to ruin the bike. Might be easier to find the black parts off the '06-'08 special edition models from a salvage yard.
