How much to paint track fairing?

Hey guys, I live in Los Angeles. I bought a set of full track fairings for my 09 CBR 600RR. I plan on having it painted plain black. Do you recommend anywhere in Los Angeles and how much do you think is a fair price for single paint, no design paint?

Call up local spots and price around.. Every shops different depending on labor/material/profit margin.

Id say it shouldnt cost more than $200 for fairings being basic single color job.

If you are painting them just plain black, why not rattle can them?

Hey Zen, if you find a cheap place, let me know/post it here. I have a set of unpainted OEM fairings that I want to get painted!

I rattle canned my extra fairings matte black. Came out great. Especially for track fairings which don't need to be super pretty

You should try Plasti dip, it come in different colors. And when your sick of that color peel it off and spray on a different color. Here a link to a place you can order from https://www.dipyourcar.com/home.php. I bought mine from my local hardware store.

And if you're uncertain about using plastidip look up a member called country cruza and he'll tell you all about it, maybe even make a cool video haha.

Concept Five in OSide painted my buddies track bike for like $750. It was like a $1800. They give discounts if you let them put C5 on your bike. He usually puts it on the front fairing. It's a pretty sweet design.

I'm sure they'd give you a good deal on a solid color job. Check them out on FB.

Don't pay too much. If it is a track bike, you don't want to cry about your paint job when the inevitable happens. (:

I think for $200 you should be able to get a very good single color paint job.

flashy expensive paint jobs dont make you go any faster lol.

thats a good idea with the electric sprayer.

if you already have a compressor you can pick up air guns pretty cheap.

The best part about the electric one i have is since its made for general paint things like walls and stuff its safe for indoor use. I painted in my basement with no fogging and u couldnt smell it upstairs as u would with a normal air hvlp gun

Rattle can it. It's a track bike. Odds are, if you keep tracking it you will go down eventually. Use the money you'll save on nice track paint for more spares.
