Found this cool video. Some of you may have seen it. I was about to do something like this, but someone had already stolen my idea :/

Very cool indeed. Canada got the blue 9er?! I thought that was overseas stuff.

I believe the very first year, '02?, was available in blue here in Canada.
The parts guy at the local Honda shop use to have one.

Correct, I know someone in High River that also has a blue 02.
Really nice colour.

If I ever find a 599 or 919 that needs paint, it will be blue. It looks great on these bikes!

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.

No orange. I've got the only one in the country as far as I know. I painted it before Honda even offered it. I think they saw mine and copied it. Bastards!

Thanks man.

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.

you can find them here;
Undertray Honda Hornet 900

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.
