Custom 07 GS500F Paint Job - All Matte Everything
« on: April 20, 2017, 10:12:39 PM »
Whats up everyone - I've been lurking for a while and got inspired to do a little work to my own bike. I always thought the 500F had an overcomplicated stock tape set, so I simplified things a little and plasti-dipped everything. Let me know what you think!

@Showbizwolf  just dropped a few more pics. The brake pedal was on there when I got the bike ~8months ago. Never knew it wasn't standard.

Very very nice indeed. I like the rim stripes and the mirrors too. I'm guessing ya have onea those neat integrated tail lights as well?

I did go with the integrated tail. I like how the leds modernize the back end. I kinda wish the lense was still red though. I think it went better with the black.

What's the deal with plastidip? I've heard a lot of people talk about it, but haven't used. Is it spray paint? Is it colored bedliner? And I understand that you can peel it off at a later date? Bike looks sexy, btw.
Deals on Amsoil if you want it. PM me for details.

Thanks   :cheers: Plastidip is like a rubber coating. If you build up like 4+ coats itll peel off smooth like a vinyl wrap The cool thing about it is it self levels if you do it right and doesnt need primer (just a real good cleaning). Plus its super cheap, spraying the whole bike cost ~45 bucks

That looks like the stock brake pedal for the F model GS's. Suzuki was always looking for a way to save a few cents. I think the E model brake pedal was nicer.
