Anyone know where I could get blue touchup paint for my 03 500r? I don't want to start to put some touchup paint on only to find out that it doesn't match at all.
I looked on ebay and all I could find was the kawasaki green.

Thanks!

For somebody who wants to repaint EX I just found a very good ex500 site. It is in German (I don't understand), but you can find some very nice ideas how to paint, how to modify...etc . Some bikes are really modified. There is a beautiful black and yellow bike with a custom made frame (not on home page-click on gpzbilder).

and mine burnout before I installed a new tire:

How do you know the site is any good if you can't read anything?? But that is a cool 500r on there.

You know, sometime you can watch a foreign movie, but you can see it's good. I can understand a little bit. Some spellings are almost the same, ex bilder=builder.

Did you see the green one near the bottom? Looks like that had a fiberglass piece between the upper and lower faring. Not the normal full faring but I think I like it better then the full aftermarket faring. Would like to find that!

I need to learn german! The removeable cowl is what I'm interested in. I've been considering getting a airtech cowl, but its a huge pain to take on and off. A nice simple removeable one would be way better.

I've been talking to the guy who owns http://www.braada.com/ he makes solo cowls for suzuki katanas. I'm hoping we can come up with a removeable solo cowl for the 500R. I've sent him some of the pictures off of the german website to encourage him to make one.

I bet he could sell a lot of those just to the people in this forum.

If you can find a solo seat for a GPZ500S, it will also fit the ex500. I emailed the people at http://www.hornchurch-bodyworks.co.uk/index.asp because they have a ton of parts for the GPZ500. I saw dual headlight farings and twin shotgun brake lights on there. I dont think the dual headlight faring will fit though without some modifications, but the brake light might.

He would be, he's an administrator on this forum.
