    Gen 2 panniers painted or wrapped?

    Hi all,

    I picked up my Gen 2 M-sport edition on Thursday, somehow the dealer managed to forgot to order or gave my panniers to someone else, well that’s the excuses I got :110:
    They are now on order and I’ve asked for white, I’m thinking of getting them wrapped as I think the plain black and white may look a little better if it was more in keeping with the M-sport colours.

    Has anyone had the Gen 2 panniers painted or wrapped?

    If so a photo would be nice. :028:
    After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.

    Had my black carriers wrapped in blue to match the bike...  It is easy to get the panels off and a good simple shape to wrap:-) Peter

    Aye, that blue is a neat touch.  Colour is a good match.

    If it were me I would have gone white:-) for visibility, but my rather wizzo daughter mocked up the attached colours and basically said blue looks better!  She has a bright orange car hence the rather glary option!  Peter

    Looking at all the options.
    Blue does it for me.

    I have the ice grey colour. Carbon dipped a few panels so far. Thinking on the pannier infills either Grey or Carbon.
    Can your daughter do the Paint brushing for those options to see what like??

    I am sure she can if you are not in a rush :-) It is a hobby of hers.  PM me your e-mail address and I'll send you mine so can exchange files.  Peter

    I wish there was some aftermarket options for fairings for the Gen 1 XR because I absolutely love that orange scheme, would 100% do something like that. Orange wheels, white base, orange decals/xr logo hmmm
