Swapped out the chrome bar end weights and silver levers for black ones. Also swapped out the chrome cover for the front suspension arm. Looks much better. All parts from ScooterWest.

Now if only they made the handlebar switch control covers and wind screen brackets in black, it would be close to perfect.

You're not finished yet. You still have the transmission cover and exhaust heat shield to do.

Heat shield is already black on the SS. Waiting for the transmission cover to get back in stock on the ScooterWest site.

Black is much nicer for the light and bright scoots hands down.

I have the Vespa Smoke Fly Screen on order (2023 GTS SS Matt Grey) from SW. I am thinking of putting 3-5 light coats of DipYourCar removable spray paint on the chrome brackets to assist with color matching. Concern is fly screen may not be able to slide down the posts once the paint is applied. Not sure how tight the fit is. Any thoughts?

Also, have black levers on same order. No brainer.

Any input and or pics of fly screen appreciated.

Thanks,
Doug

I'm getting the green SS this weekend and following your path. Thanks for posting. I'm going to be visiting the powder coating shop soon.

Mirrors were removed in order to install the levers. They're back on.
