Thread: Painting sponsons
09-10-2014, 07:47 PM #1
Has anybody ever painted their sponsons? If so how well did it hold up? After seeing the 2015 Kawi with the green ones I'm wondering if it would be possible to paint OEM RXP-X sponsons. I think it would look good. Anyone have a paint code for the 2014 "viper red"?

Um. Sounds interesting! I would like to do that on my sponsons and engine cover too! Here's the color code i think its right! BRP B176 Viper Red

Thanks Jack I will try to match it up and be the guinea pig if nobody has done it with the red or dayglo yellow yet. If I fail and it doesn't hold up it just gives me a reason to buy Riva/R&D sponsons.

i'm willing to bet its green plastic the sponsons are made out of. i'd lay quite a few coats of clear over them once you paint them so it holds up.

People have tried it but have a very hard time getting paint to stick to the textured surface of the sponson since it takes the beating with water pressure that it does....

I've thought about hydrodipping them as well.

What about that plasti dip stuff? I've seen wheels done with it and it stands up to pressure washers.
