  • Bedliner paint job update?

    OK now at the start of the season( or was it farther back?) someone with an old school Kat 600 painted the bike with bedliner spray. Now it looked really awesome considering it was done for maybe $40.

    Does anyone remember who did it? I was wondering how it held up for the season of riding?

    I thought FreakinOut did it to his Ninja 500, but I might be mistaken. I do recall someone else doing it to their pre-98 Kat, but I can't remember who...

                  It's cheap, basically a few guys painted thier bikes fairings with it for around $20, it looked pretty good on the older Kat.

                  I was thinking of picking up some rashed fairings and painting them up with bedliner for trackdays.

                  Ok I found the pics, it was "Steve's" bike

                  anyway here's what it looked like (pics are 180Kb each)

                    Plus it's a much more rugged surface covering than regular paint when it comes to thin plastics (such as the lower fairings on the 98+ models), and it's virtually impossible to get wrong (as verses to a four-layer minimum proper paint job -- primer, paint, paint, clear).

                    Cheers

                      Do you need an air compressor and gun...or is it a spray can?

                      yes...I'm dumb

                        Comes in a spray can, or can be applied by some outfits via gun. Most people go the spray can route. It's even available in various primary colors (blue, green, red, etc) through some places, although most opt for the standard black or gray.

                        Cheers

                          Looks like a stealth job. I think that would be easy up keep.

                            Yeah, that stuff is easy to paint on, I am going to do my Dads truck for X-Mas I think with that stuff. Its pretty rugged too.

                              Do you need to prep the surface (of a fairing) as if painting with regular paint?
