I've noticed that many of you riding the red Versys bikes have bikes with a red spring coil. I've got a the blue V. The spring is silver. I wonder if it could be painted the same color as the bike--blue? I guess this would be a difficult thing to make happen?
Mine was red and I painted it Silver to match the frame and plastics. Got a spring compression kit and once compressed the spring can be taken off the shock with relative ease. The hard part is re-compressing the spring after painting without screwing up your paint job.
