    I uploaded a few pictures of my bike with all the grey painted black. It was a lot more work than I expected, but think it was worth it Let me know what you think.

    I bought a quart of paint from the dealer. It is a single stage paint. Not real up on paint tech, but it came with a second smaller can of activator. It took me about six hours to get it apart without the manual. Someone else sprayed it for me.It took a couple of days to get the parts back. Than much to my surprise, it took almost six hours to put back together. I though it would be faster since I now know howthe bikeis put together. Only had one screw left over. The paint listed for $99 at the time, but has gone up ten bucks since. The guy that prepped, primed and painted charged me $300. I think it was worth it. I had planed on getting the chrome parts in front and rear of engine in the future, but now that it's done I like the black too much.
    I have to thank Andy for his video on the trunk removal. Saved me a bunch of time and I knew in advance to remove the license plate to prevent damage.
    3500 miles since 5/30
