Well my bike is being painted as we speak. I went with a pearl white with a little gold flake in the clear. I also have an all carbon fiber upper and lowers. So my tank andmid fairings and tail and seat cowl are going to be white and the uppers and lowers are all carbon fiber. i will post some pics once i get it all back together. its in a millon pieces right now.

I used a screw driver and mallet to knock them out and yea, theres a front and rear bearing kit that comes with seals. So that's all you need.
