Default Suzuki m50 parts

Hi, I'm finally committing to buying a motorcycle and I've chosen to go with an m50. Was just curious as to who are some of the more reputable after market parts dealers and websites? I'm not sure if my wants can be met being that my knowledge is some what limited as to what can be done with bikes aesthetically. I'm really wanting to get a black m50 and pretty much black out all that I can of it. Pretty much no chrome. Is this gonna be way to difficult to do so? Or where would be a good place to read up on learning some how to's? Thanks everyone!

Blacked-out formerly-chromed bits is just handful of wet or dry attached to a 3M sanding-block, and a can of "Black Wrinkle" paint away. It's cheaper than paying some guy to do the same thing, but more-expensive than just spray-grenade'n it with a case O' BBQ paint...........

One of the guys on the Honda 599 list painted his (formerly yellow) bike with that black truck liner stuff. It actually looked pretty good!

So, the Black wrinkle paint..is that like automotive paint or spray paint? And will it work on the exhaust as well? And for the honda 599 with the bed liner paint where did you see that at? Thanks!

Only use paint specifically designed for high temperatures. If you can find black wrinkle hi-temp paint then go for it.

I have a Boston-area friend, did the Herculiner thing on his HawkGT.

Didn't even get any on his Hootus.

(for more on that obscure reference, Scroogle "Herculiner on a Hootus")

Awe, now I'm sad. I've been reading the newbie riders section that most of you have posted in and from what I've read this bike would be a terrible choice for a first time rider.

Yeah, for a beginning rider, it would be. But hey, look at it this way - you can get a good bike for your budget, and it will be one that is safer and easier for you to learn on. In that time, you can save up a bit more and once you've got some miles (and understanding!) under your belt, you can move up to the Triple.
