Try a local body shop, I have done this on several bikes .If you don't want a way out custom paint job and some shops can do that very good .

Also, just a random question. Has anyone ever had the thought of throwing fairings on this bike? I love the bike, but it just feels like it is missing something. I would love to get some side fairings and a sport bike-like front fairing, but I am not really sure if that is possible. Any input on all of this would be greatly appreciated :D
With enough money thrown at it anything is possible.

Im going to highly recommend AGAINST maaco. They do a crap job, for cheap. If thats what you want, then go for it. My personal friend has a paint shop, with a $20k booth (not bragging about him). But he paints full fairing-ed bikes for about $1000. If its just the tank, tail section, and fender, Id guess around $600-$800 for a color change with nothing custom (pinstriping/stripes/flames/chameleon colors, etc.). Take to a body shop and ask. I can ask my friend too, if you want. Maybe forums are a new venture that he can branch to..

I want to get my frame painted black but im sure they will tell me the bike needs to be disassembled for I that :(
for that, id recommend getting it powder coated. And you would have to remove everything :(

I would take a picture of the pieces you want painted and email a bunch of local shops requesting an estimate. I wouldn't imagine that it would be that expensive (depending on how fancy you want the paint to be), especially if you do all of the dis-assembly yourself.

The rubber pads on the tank are on there with a fairly strong adhesive, so you're either going to have to have them taped off and painted around, or pull them off (which would pretty much destroy them) and replace them after the tank has been painted.

I'd try wrapping it first. There are youtube videos on the subject, and i don't think it'd be that hard to do. It's also easy to reverse, in case you decide you hate it.

Just to give you something to compare to..
I am doing my wheels gold to match the forks..
A high end local shop quoted me 125 a wheel for single stage gold and 200 a wheel to do gold base with a candy to mimic the anodized gold look.
This is with me fully removing everything from the wheel.
