Thought I would share. Had this on for about 2 weeks but finally got around to cleaning her today and snapping some pics.

Edit: Click on the pictures for a better view. I still need to add the KR decals on the rear fairings and out the clear tail light on. This week Lord willing!

Opinions please?

sweet. I can't wait to get mine. new can first then maybe the cowl. Anyone have any idea what it costs on average to have a rear cowl painted?

I paid 50 bucks for mine and they clear coated it too. I supplied the paint though. When getting an estimate over the phone, I described it as about the size of a basketball which made it easy for them to picture the size of it.

Did you supply the clear coat also or just the blue? I suppose mine would be white to match my tail. hmmm I wonder what colour white suzuki uses. I use to think white was white but I know that's not the case with automotive white. you have bright, brilliant, snow, pearl, ummm I know I am missing some.

The shop provided the clear coat.
Yup, colorrite is where I got mine. Perfect match. Will require a half pint and it will leave you a little left over. Good in case you ever need to touch up some rock chips or something. I thought about the spray can, but the paint ship said they needed a half pint to do it right.

How long did it take you to receive the cowl? I ordered mine on Dec31st and am not expecting speedy delivery but have not heard back from Braada either. I understand they are very busy to say the least, just can't wait.....

Thanks.

It took about 4 months or so. He will get to you though bro. You can get the status usually from Wildkat if you pm him. It is worth the wait though as you can see!
Sounds like your will arrive right when the nice weather arrives. Now that is good timing!

Thanks KatanaSoldier and HS2020 for your assistance. You're right, it should arrive in time for the warmer weather and my goodness it finishes off the tail perfectly. Well worth the wait and $$.
Right now it is approx 5 deg C here in Vancouver BC and my 2006 Kat just arrived at the dealership today. I take possesion in 3 weeks. :) :)
Not bad for a first bike me thinks....

Thanks again guys.

Oh yeah, KS, beauty colour (ooops sorry Cdn spelling there,) COLOR on your Kat. Custom paint? Looks sweet!
