green/black front cowl...have you seen this?

Has anyone ever seen this cowl? Im trying to figure out what the exact color is. Long story short, I emailed the seller on ebay about the color and asked if it was candy lime green (i have a 2011). They replied "yes", so I bought it. The color looks a little off (more like the regular lime green from the 09 monster edition). I brought this to the sellers attention and they are not exactly sure what the color is. The cowl will be here wednesday so Ill have to wait and see but Id like to gather some info about it anyway.

The part number is k51001-250. I called kawasaki and they said it was a discontinued part and didnt have any info besides that it was green and black lol

I just want to know if its the same candy lime green color that was used in 09 and 11.

I think it is different than the 09 green and the green on the 11. I think Shane had one of these fairing sets, maybe he can chime in let you know for sure, but I don't think that color had any candy to it.

Definitely not a stock color like the 09. I bought one of those complete sets from a dealership on ebay back in 2010. Howell Motorsports maybe. Take a look here.

This is the set I got from them. Not even close to an 09 green. They did a run of 50 of them if I remember right.

The green on the 09 and the 11 are the same color. They are both "Candy Lime Green". The green on the cowl you purchased was a limited edition replacement color offered by Kawi. It is like the weird flames set up they offered a while back. like the ones in this previous post (which i think look hideous!)

If you shop around you should be able to find a complete set of the fairings to match your cowl, Or just repaint and leave it be.
