Yup... I want to pink-out the Rappy, but on a budget.
Anyone have any tips on how I can add some pink accents, without spending an arm and a leg on powdercoating?
I also have some idea's in mind for graphics, but haven't had much luck on finding someone who does custome work.

Any suggestions? :help:

i do know that they do make pink plastics for the Raptor. my girlfriend pointed this out to me and was going to order them as a joke... :mad: not funny to me...... we just pinked out her LTZ250.... alba made a graphics kit for it. you may be able to contact them and see if they would be able to help you out since they have the stencil for the raptor and already have a pink scheme...... just an idea.

The nose cover could be painted as well as the plastic guard behind it.

Seat cover is a great idea, some graphics kits come with them as well. Verde powersports makes some nice custom seat covers. These two would probably make the biggest impact on how your bike looks, at least for the price.


Found a few pink things on e-bay also:

Thanks for the imput guys. :)
I have the LE '05, so I'd like to keep the plastic's (shimmer gray)... and the only pink that would match those plastics nicely would be a pale pink, not the bright stuff most places make. :(

The bilets on e-bay are amazing..... and i would get them if I had $500 laying around. ::)

As for a seat cover... thats a great idea.... anyone know of someone who makes custom seats?

This is my Raptor currently (sorry, no still pictures of it yet):



This is what I did to my previous quad:



I would powercoat my Rappy's frame and such, but don't want to go through another headache of tearing it down and rebuilding it. Plus the cost of PCing is something I can't afford right now.

It sounded funny at the time, but seeing it in print is just wrong.
You shouldn't do such things.
