I could help strip it down...now putting it back together...sorry, cant help with that.

Before you strip it down you should sit down and think of anything else you wanna do while you have a bare frame.
You dont wanna screw in the last fairing bolt and then say to yourself, ", i should have done ______ while I had it stripped down.
Maybe your wheels to match?

Cant wait to see pics though. good luck.

Easiest way to black out a frame is the duplicolor spray on bedliner. Sounds weird, but if you use a light spray of it, it looks just like its been powdercoated. Just sand the frame pretty good with a rough grit so that it has something to stick to. You might also lay down a coat of adhesion promoter first. Its pretty durable stuff, but if it gets scratched, its really easy to touch up.

Powdercoating is just a baked on paint. It is a little more durable than regular paint, but once you scratch it (like during reassembly) you're screwed.

I work at shop that powdercoats frames. I'm pretty familiar with it. Yes it can be touched up with paint, but like you said... the powder is thicker, so you still see a scrape with just some color dabbed in. Powder is the way to go if you want some cool color, but for straight black.......I'll skip the 20hrs of labor anyday in lieu of some spray on coating.
