painting the suzuki v-strom exhaust shield


after seeing it done on various v-stroms, I decided this is a look I want to sport – My Ninja Wee. removing the heat shield is simply unscrewing two hex screws: naked pipe doesn’t look half bad: I used krylon fusion camouflage ultra-flat black spray paint: the goo gone is here because I screwed up […]
