Airbox mud flap

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to swap out the white airbox mud flap that protects the shock for a black one but can't seem to find one. Has anyone done this before or is it easier to just spray paint it black. I purchased an Acerbis off Dennis Kirk and it says it's for a 2006 250x but it's clearly made for the 250R. I even went to the Acerbis website and they recommended the one I bought but the hole for the screws are completely different and it has a curved part for the dual exhaust, which I clearly do not have. Hope someone can help. :)

Thanks

Just spray painted mine black today but I'm thinking the 2009 flap is very similar to the 2006 white one. I have to go back to the dealership on Friday to pick up some parts and I'll bring mine to check it against an '09. But yeah, the one for the R is completely different than the one for the X.

I used some "plastics" spray paint I got at Lowe's for $5 - alot cheaper than the $23 the dealership wants for the mud flap.

Nevermind about the dye question. I looked at the thread. Duh.

I think I will try the dye idea, I've been using the Krylon paint but it just chips really easily.

OK - was at the stealership today, carried my spray painted one with me. Compared it to the one on the '09 X (which is black) and it is the same size, with holes in the same place. Therefore, if you want a factory made flap, order the 2009.

I just spray painted it and it looks fine but I am also worried about it chipping so I will be ordering a 2009 flap, thanks SLips with Flaps

Mine doesn't exactly chip, it rubs off from the swing arm movement.. I currently have my rear caliper guard and rear disc guard soaking in some Rit Dye, I will let you guys know how it goes tommorow.
