I agree Kryton...however the cost of a painted replacement panel is cheaper than the cost involved in getting an existing panel repainted, paint costs alone being very high then you would have to have it professionally  sprayed  :002:
Very true Rog.  As you know I did
consider getting the paint from RS paints, and spraying it myself. But with a bit of discount from my dealer that brought the price of the new Orange lid down to £77 it just wasn't worth doing.  :152:

Understand now, even so, £92 is still a bit much for a bit of plastic, be it painted or otherwise
Yes,  but it does come with 2 spiffing Kawasaki badges as well  :008: :008:

:008: :008: I think that I actually said that I would try for 100K,  so if I do 74 thousand on the new one I will have done it.  :008: :008:  :152:
