Painting the knee pads ...
Has anyone attempted to paint the rubber knee pads ? I was looking at them carefully and they are painted from the factory. I was thinking of using some sort of bumper paint which is flexible and give it a try. What do you guys think ?

I used this on the grab handle... worked great! I'm going to try it on the green pad of the seat cowling.
I'll let you know how it works... waiting for it to warm up a bit.

I used Krylon Fusion to repaint some parts on my Polaris when I had it, that stuff works great. It holds up to a quite a bit of flex and adheres very well to plastic.

OK, I used the Krylon Fusion on the seat cowling pad and it worked out great. I can squish it in with my thumb about an inch and the paint complies easily with the indentation. I think the key to having it look "real" is to apply two very light coats... don't use to much or it starts to fill in the pours and looks shiny.
Now, as for durability, I'll have to wait until I abuse it with a couple of superman maneuvers.
Armondo, this paint should work well on your knee pads.
