Hi all, as some have read in the member introduction (http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ad.php?t=84257
) . I'm a new V-driver, I bought a used versys 2009 with 17.000km which needed some tlc. Don't know if anyone interested but here is a short update.
I started working on the bike thinking the plastidip would come off quite nice but offcourse it didn't!
1st problem, the guy did not disassemble the bike to spray the dip on, so the dip was everywhere... 2nd problem, again the guys an idiot, he didn't put enough layers on, so it wouldn't come off. Bit by bit I had to clean all the panels and after 3 full days they are finally clean again, and the paint is undamaged
I also reinstalled the stock exhaust because i just didn't like the laser ones, if anyone is interested in them let me know. I removed the handguards for now temporarily en replaced the controls from the heated grips to the dashboard.
Still i have a few problems and would be happy to hear if anyone can help:
The header pipes are black, rusty and dirty and I can't seem to get them clean or even the "somewhat gold original color"
The rear "I don't know what the English term is" has a big ugly scratch in it, how can i get rid of this? (paint repair kit, sticker on top,...)?
Thanks for reading and your help in advance. C ya!
