there's a thread about freshening up black plastic with a heat gun. Think it's in the how to section. I've had great success with black magic's back to black. Might take a few coats, but it looks awesome!

+1 on the hair dryer. I picked up a heat gun at harbor freight. I've used it forever, and it works like a champ. I think it was $9. Well worth it for the average home owner.
Walmart also has back to black. It's cheaper than autozone!

yeah I painted mine on my 99 GSX ltd you need to find the spray paint used for plastic got my at auto paint supply house cost was about 18 a can but with a little prep work it will turn out like new make sure you clean and sand the pad before spraying you can also use a primer to give the new paint something to hold on to
