changing plastics

I have a 2005 red/black. I was thinking it would be pretty cool to change to side covers, front and rear fender, and headlight fairing to black. (I am thinking about getting an acerbis front fender anyway to help with the wind problem on the highway, as per a recommendation of a member on this forum) I have no desire to paint the plastics. To replace all these parts, it adds up to about $350+shipping. A little pricey, but I think it would look pretty cool. Has anyone done this or seen someone that has done this to their bike? I'm just wonderin what it would look like all blacked out with just the red on the tank and radiator shrouds. Is so, can you provide pictures? Thanks.

Sounds great. Sounds like a good idea.I have the 2001 green and would like to make everything black also (except the tank) I have seen bikes painte with Rhino Liner and they look pretty cool.

Black looks good on a KLR, I have an extra set of plastics and tank that I have painted white and I switch them out sometimes.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
