Painting a frame

How much of a no no is it to paint the matte black frame on the "R" red? The look of the bikes with the bright red frame is just bad ass to me and the R would look perfect with this. It is too subdued in the all black color. How involved would it be for the dealer to strip it to the frame and is it something that would never be right again if taken apart? What do you all think?

Unfortunately, your talking big bucks to paint the frame, as you have to remove everything to have the frame accessable to paint. If your shop labor rate is $65-$85 an hour, im guessing it would take a 1-2 days to take it all apart, probably shoot it for $500 or less and then 1-2 days to put her back together so maybe 2.5k-4k, if your lucky. I agree, I love the red frame on my 910, if they made the R with a red frame, Id be seriously tempted.
