Well, my pocket is somewhat lighter due to comissioning the painting of my AN650's wheels to matt black from the standard 'sensible' silver. It gives it a Type S feel, which I like. I am personally very impressed with this. $600 all-in - not cheap, but I love what it has done for the looks.

I've also included a shot my lower right-hand side front fairing lower before relacement to new, to remind the more aggressive among us that the front fairing touches the ground before the stand on the right-hand side, when riding solo. $200 dollars for replacement.

Is the pic in the same gallery? I didn't see it.

Thanks JD. :) Everything is possible, if you are willing to give the custom shop the shirt off your back...

Or do it yourself for a whole lot less! (About $10 for a couple of spray cans):

I've set the pre-load to four and pumped up the tires max recommended but have the same problem. Mine doesn't look that bad because my scooter is black. Also the rain deflector on the left side takes a grinding every once in a while.

I checked the price for a replacement right side part yesterday...$150.00 at Ron Ayers. I'm still thinking about it.

Russell, glad to see that I'm not the only one that has urinated away almost $200 on a single bend. :oops: This thing can run with the race reps (at a cost), but I shall be avoiding doing that on the 650 in future. It's far too pretty to be tainted again, and besides I've got the 1100 musclebike for that.

I must confess that in 12 months and 13,000km, I've only ridden the bike solo 3 times. It's really my 2-up long touring machine, and even on pre-load position 4 on the rear shocks, the extra 48kgs of bodyweight on the rear helps the centre stand touch down before the front faring lowers - usually followed by a tired, almost 'not again' sigh of "don't do that" over the intercom system...

Black model? Nice. That'd look good with black wheels. :wink: Take it easy out there, brother.
