Can anyone tell me what countries are getting black color in first shipment, cause Australia is not until next year.
The cost of replacing the panels, when purchased as replacement parts at retail or MSRP, could easily exceed 10% of the original cost of the bike. If you removed the panels and took them to a professional paint shop, you could probably have it done for a fraction of that. For that matter, urethane is pretty much urethane, black urethane is pretty much black urethane, and clear urethane is pretty much clear urethane. But then there is the matter of the decals, which nowadays are applied before the factory clear coat. If you don't care about them, you could just paint over them. Or, you could maybe mask them while doing the black layer. A professional painter might know some way to remove the original decals and them put them back on after the black layer and before the final clear coat. You might could take a good photo of them, and then after doing the black coat, take the panels that had the decals to a good detail painter and have them painted on by hand.
Leaving for a week-long business trip, Mr. Smith arranges with a dim-witted neighbor to have his front porch painted while away. The business meeting is a failure and ends a few days early, so before catching an early flight, he calls his neighbor to ask if the porch is completed. The neighbor replies: "Sure mister, I finished painting your porch, just like you asked. Only, it weren't a porch. It were a BMW."
