I painted mine silver, then masked off the "dimples", then painted them satin black.

Nice covers Gary.

I just sanded and painted mine Krylon orange.

Sorry for the unabashed self promotion but I just had to:D

No need to be sorry those are awesome. I've seen pictures of them painted in orange before but I must say I like the raw polished look much better personally.

Hey,

Im not proud.. :laugh: Actually they look pretty good. Most people cant even tell they are painted, they think its just a stock color. Though, its not near as nice as yours. They still look as good as they did the day I painted them.:killingme

Im sure its only a matter of time. I planned on buying some of those sooner or later.

Racing Rice,
Actually I am glad they dident come like yours are now, we wouldent have sold near as many! Red covers on a orange bike:rolleyes:
Gary
Yeah, I really don't get why they did that other then to be cheap. Why didn't they put red ones on the green bike?:blackeye:

Are you talking about these ones?
They are ok I guess.






I like all the ones you all have posted better. I think I will just paint mine black for now and consider ALL the alternatives before spending the money. Besides. I still have pipes to buy!

This a Question for Billet Z1K.

I am interested in the Black engine covers that have the "Z" on them.
I am just wondering if it is possible to have the Z gold to match the forks and handlebars?

If we ever get moved we will make a monster run of Z covers as we are out of them now. I have not tried to do two color powder on the covers but I will see if it is feasable.

Vern, I really like the way you've painted yours. Would you mind telling me your process, and what you masked the dimples with?

I guess it's a good thing that I didn't order any yet.
