Want paint opinions

I was thinking about painting the ninja a flat black/ matte black.
Does anyone here have a paint job like that and pictures?
I like the green but was wanting to get some opinions. I kinda like that stealth look of the flat black. I might add some green pinstriping to highlight the green rim stripes.

Jrock,
I'd paint the plastics flat black, leave the tank green, and maybe get some green decals for the fairings

I say since your plastics are still in great shape then leave them if your only option is flat black. Flat black just seems to be a quick fix when wrecking your bike.

I agree. If you only have a small rashed up spot then fix it and keep it the same color. I only painted mine because the whole side was rashed up. I like mine all black though.
