    Painting my bike

    i got a yellow 1999 R6 and I took it in for an icbc claim, (some guy backed into my bike, long story) I am getting the tail part and the FRONT (headlight part) assembly re-painted along with other repairs. (covered by ICBC)

    i might as well the rest of the bike painted and they quoted me approx 600 bucks.

    does anyone know other paint shops, iknow there's borderline but who else.

    i want to get it painted somewhre else that's cheaper than 600 dollars.

    how much is generally to get a ONE color painted (no fancy pansy) just one color? BTW, its being painted R1 Black.

    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

    That's about the right price, see if they will go down if you take all the parts off for them. You might save a little in labour.

    definitely cheaper if you take everything off for them. You can check with Starlight autobody, I remember they painted a gixxer and another bike a few years back.
