Hi guys

I have a new to me 2007 Fugly, in the silver and red like one of the pics on the header photos.

It has very low mileage, about 4500 now, some very slight surface corrosion due to standing under a bike cover outside near the coast. Hardly an issue.

The thing is though, that it is now pink, as I believe a lot of the red ones are. Not bad, but not red..

If it was yours, what would you do?

Try to get the red back? How?
Respray a different colour? Would cost a lot in labour, but not in money, as I could do myself. How to spray the plastics?

I didn't pay a huge amount for it.. so if I sprayed a non standard colour, and customised, would I affect the resale value/saleability?

Thanks for any thoughts..

Hi and welcome.

What area are you in. I am in Waterfall KZN and have a mate who is a very good spray painter and has actually just resprayed a FUGLY KLR.

If you are from Durban/Surroundings stay in touch and join us on some rides. Always looking for new riding partners.

Hi, thanks for the welcome!

Wow Martin the KLR in that link does look amazing..

I'm in Camperdown, so up the road from you Andy.

Would be good to ride sometime, but I'm a noob... Where do you guys ride, and what sort of riding?

My number is 0764105023. Add me on WhatsApp and we can chat.

We don't do extreme rides. Try and find some dirt roads and 2 spoor tracks etc. I'm sure there is plenty there in Camperdown that you could show us. We often take a ride up to Vans Hotel for a brekkie on a Sunday.. I go on camping trips with my KLR as well which I really enjoy.
I'll send you some pics of the type of rides that we do. Nothing technical that you won't be able to handle.
