I bought a 2006 red 500R in April and got a red helmet to match. However, in July, I purchased a 2006 blue ZX6R. I really don’t want to buy another helmet since I just got mine. Has anyone every tried to paint their helmet? If so, what kind of results did you get? What type of paint did you use? Do you even think it’s possible? Pics would be nice if you have them.

I have painted helmets before with good quality off the shelf auto motive paint from any Auto shop. Primed first and then ready to go. Just make sure to go with multiple light coats and your will get a great result.

most of the time it is better to get a new helmet versus repainting or custom paint..

I had a custom job done from a friend and it was $250.00
plus the $350.00 for the arai helmet..so do the math?
