Ideas for my 06 paint?

I really don't care for the paint graphics on my 06....to me....it appears dated and I'm thinking it's time for a change. I've been thinking about just respraying it all black.

Or, does anyone have any ideas of something I could do OVER the existing paint to make it less dated looking? The tank doesn't bother me....I just don't like the graphics on the fairing and bags.

I have a local auto body guy......who will respray all the painted parts solid black for about $800....it's either that or unless someone here has a better idea that costs less...

$800 is a really good price for the whole bike. But it looks like if you're staying with black then you only need to repaint the outer fairing, bag lowers, and the tank. Should be less than half of your original quote. You could have some pinstripes or graphics done with the rest of the money

If you want to keep the cost down you could just have the graphic on the fairing redone to something more modern that still matches the rest.

$800 is a helluva deal.

$800 would cover the rear tail, tank, side covers, fairing, front fender and bags. Same guy did my 03 Kawi ZRX front fender, tank, tail piece, 1/4 fairing and two side covers in black for $400. The RG is a bit more work.
I've been using him for about 15 years so maybe I get a extra good deal....

If you are going to repaint it then spend alittle more and make it YOURS.

Just an idea but what about that plasti-coat which is removable if you do not like the look. There has been a few guys on this forum who have used it.

I have the same year, same color as you. I also think the RG needs a new suite. I have to wait a couple years, but I am thinking a large flake metallic would look good. I kind of like the new gold/black metallic the MOCO has for 2016 is interesting. I think it might cost a little more than 800.00.

Lots of stock bikes with paint / graphics that become blah with each new release. New paint is like an addiction bug - once you start it is all over (paint, powder coat,....). My '08 had the swoosh graphics that had to go. The base paint was a good base to work from. Like others have mentioned - make it your own. A nice pearl black with pin stripes or air brush would look nice. Here is my '08 after a seasonal break from my mod addiction. If you care to see the transformation pics check my photo albums. Interestingly the new '16 have a paint scheme similar to your '06. Guess they ran out of original ideas, again.

When I repainted mine I opted to go with something other than a factory color. I didn't see much point in paying extra to make it look like it came off a showroom floor. If your guy will do the whole thing for that price then there's a ton of colors in the ppg book that he can mix up for the same money.
