The two rare stock colors, blue and orange (with a black motor).
Did you guys up there get the orange too?
I'm 99% certain that we did not get the orange, just the blue in '02. no black motors up here either.
the blue is so much better in person. when I was looking into another 9er after my silver one got totaled the blue one caught my eye, but I wasn't sold on it. once I saw it in person, I was sold.
PB215 Candy Tahitian Blue.
when I had my under-tail painted they couldn't find that paint-mix anymore, so they mixed their own. it came out slightly more purple then the stock colour, but it's damn near impossible to tell.
I really like what you did with your under tail. Is there a thread on here about doing this? I'm going to want to clean mine up after I do the 900rr headers and tucked up license plate.
It's an Ermax Undertray. they used to offer all colours, but when I ordered the blue I was informed that they don't do colours other then black anymore, so I grabbed the unpainted one and had it painted.
it's pretty straight forward [comes with instructions], but a bit of a pain to install [much easier if you're doing the 900rr headers though].
you've gotta chop off the back end of the stock undertray [the boxy part] and then relocate the ECU and relays off to the side once everything is lined up and back together.
I used some velcro to keep the ECU in place.. and some velcro to keep my little tool kit in place on the other side.
I also had mine rock guarded after it was painted. that way all the shit flying up into there won't ruin the paint.
there's a few options for undertails that can be explored before venturing into this particular one [the hardest one, and you can't reverse it because of the butchering of the stock part] so search around and do whichever one you like the best.
