Has anyone ever painted, or know if it is possible to paint the stock windscreen black, to take out the glare?...Would it flake off? Is there an alternative to buying a aftermarket speedscreen?...Any suggestions?

Sure did.....

I had an 88 Ninja which had a faded windscreen. I used black spray-paint, followed by some spray on clear coat. It lasted for 2 years until I sold the bike.

I guess my main concern is that it will look "ghetto"... I'm not going for the "rigged" look..I'm just wanting to make sure that it will look good, and not flat..

Hey man, cool to see someone else from Roanoke on here! Be careful about painting that screen. Last year when I got my bike inspected, the guy gave me a hard time about mine and it's just a smoke screen. He said you have to be able to see through it and he thought the tint was too dark. I told him that was ridiculous and he finally passed it. It all depends on where you take it I guess. I made the mistake of taking it to a dealer that time. If you decide to paint it and are not sure about the inspection, I'll check around and see if I can find a place that will pass it if you want though you may already know of a place. If you ever want to get together and ride let me know. My job is killing me right now but I try to squeeze in a ride or two on the weekends if I can.

any real reason?

is there any real good reason you DON'T want to buy a new windscreen,....they only cost about $40,.....if it were me i would think the time spent prepping the screen and costs of paints and other supplies just to see if it would look ghetto are a complete waste of my time and would much rather buy one and if i dont like it i can return it,.....if you dont like your paint job u would proll HAVE to buy one then,.......btw i picked mine up at targa-acc.com
