Dont waste the money on paint, you can get those pieces replaced cheaper than having it painted, it is one lower and the right light I believe if memory serves me correct. Cause I bought it that way also LOL

Professional flat black? Not to sound like a jerk, it is actually probably due to lack of knowledge on the topic of paint, but can flat black look professional? Other than prep under the paint and making sure you don't have runs, isn't that about as simple as a paintjob gets? (honest question)

I'm getting geared up to paint my bike this offseason, but I wouldn't be even a little intimidated if I was going flat black.
