There is YouTube videos on this and it's really cool. It won't chip because rs ink on your paint. As for cost, it ranges. It maybe $200 for your lowers I'm not sure. You will have to call around and ask who does it or post on your bike site and ask. It's called hydro dipping I think. They can do any cf we've or pattern as long as they can buy it. There are 100s of cf types u jus have to find one u like. Hope this helps
Nice! Thanks for the info. The price is definitely something I can get excited about if I could have it done for less than $300. I will check on YouTube as per your advice to see what it looks like and how it is done. As for not chipping, that is definitely a motivator because I want to have this done on my lower fairings. All in all, this sounds like a better way to go versus my original thought of having them painted. Thanks again! Stay safe on the roads.
