Good effort but i can bet that stock Kari will eat this out, its air cooled bike mate don't kill the engine with suffocation.
Try to install the new oil cooler which came in new Kari to your bike.

Sorry to burst your bubble reitz.
For 9000 all you got was:
1. Red paint on the wheels
2. Yellow paint on the inner disc ring
3. And a fairing which obstructs passage of air to the cylinder.

Not worth it at all, would suggest you revert to the original fairing and lose the current one.

Reitz...

Pretty poor job.

IMHO, you have got the rough end of the stick.

Nothing great.

At 9K, just some paint work and a poor looking fairing.
Not worth it at all.

To each his own, but this one looks like a toy bike rite ? Is that what the enthusiast wanted ?
IMO the yellow disc and the red wheels are killing the bike.

for 9k on a Zma I would have switched 17" rims, better tyres, kn filters, a racing clutch and rear sets. would have made it a mean track bike

This looks a bit outta' proportion. Plus the red mags and gold disk are overkill.. the paint job seems to be good though..
If you are happy with the bike, then its worth! its all that matters!

The stock Karizma is still one of the most beautiful bikes in India (not the ZMR).
What you have done is spent 9k on getting glossy paint on alloys (not good), Added a fairing which is made of a material thats different and definitely of low grade than the one used in the stock fairing.
And what seems like is that you cant even get rid of it without damaging the original fairing.
A very poor job IMHO. And the bike looks like any other mod simply to imitate the superbike look.
