Exclamation Can I make my 4 yr old Karizma look brand new?

I have a Karizma and the condition of the bike is not quite good. There are a lot of scratches in tank and other body parts. Can I replace the tank, front fairing and tail parts with completely new spare parts (of new colour)?

I do not want repaint jobs really.

Has anyone done that?

I've done something similar. Changed all the colored parts of karizma recently. All together it came to about 13k odd.. I could have painted it for cheaper, but the plastics had broken loose due to riding on bad roads and all.

if plastics are not broken.. get your bike repainted..parts are very very expensive to replace

If u go for claim for ur plastic parts u ll get almost nothing cos your bike is 4 year old now.IF ur budget allow then go ahead it will cost u about 8-9k rs.

Don't do this after certain period color shades look different.Go for full claim or full repaint.Total repainting job is also acceptable if done by a good painter,just 4-5k rs job.
