Anybody ever powder coat their crash bars?

So I've got a yellow 2012 v.

I've got the givi engine guards on the bike with some black rivco highway pegs.

I'm thinking of getting the engine guards powder coated yellow. Anybody ever done this? Happen to have a picture?

But the motor is black! Right?

I'm not sure about that?

Twistes thottle usually puts all yellow parts on black bikes for their "demo" bikes.
Search google images. Several of their bikes pop up.

I live close to A Vicious Cycle and they have a nice twisted throttle bike done up in their showroom. The engine guards are black though. I don't think I've ever seen one with the engine guards powder coated black.

Might have to take a picture of my bike and then photoshop the engine guards yellow to see what it might look like before I do it.

Actually I did find a picture of one of their bikes with yellow engine guards.

Looks good. Go for it.
If it makes a fugly bike like a Vstrom look good, it will ROCK on a Versys!

Always trust your cape.
