How much would it cost to get a bike painted?

I was just wondering because i saw a red 05 zx6r 636 that i like and would want to buy but im not a red fan. So about how much would it cost to get the whole bike painted gloss black? Or would it be cheaper to put a new set of fairings on, plus switching the gas tank over to gloss black as well. (gas tank i know is the most expensive piece)

I think i have seen your bike, you got the all gray bike now. I though you said it is easy to scratch/peel off.

yeah pretty sure i read a thread on here said that plasti dip comes off easily. that would be bad.. but do call House of paint and let them know youre off motohouston n ask for a estimate in price. It wouldnt be hard painting it yourself either, just a little patience but taking a bike apart is cake

I could do all one color for around $200

Race skins would be cheaper. there are so many pieces to stock plastics.
