These folks have been adding power to the Spyder's Engine for years... from the time BEFORE it was a Spyder engine:

You had asked about graphics options, luckily one of the bigger cycle graphics groups has added the Spyder to its list of "Cycles" Maybe they can make a Mat Black one for you. Or, you can order the blackout kit that CAn-AM sells (even sell black wheels..... or.... I saw a fellow selling his silver body pieces after he bough the black ones on Ebay for $590? just buy them and have them painted.

Here is an article on the matte black model,

I didn't quite understand you post. Are you trying to paint your Spyder matte black or do you want to add graphics to an already matte black Spyder? If it's the former, any auto body shop can do the job for you.

Excellent! Be sure to post pics when done.

For cost comparison, I found this black-out kit for sale on ebay:

EBay black out kit

They are asking an $820 starting bid, $1040 buy it now, they are a dealer, so I'd guess the retail price is $1040?

Congratulations - - - You'll have a blast on your Spyder!

Have you ever ridden a trike before? If not, I'd highly recommend you take one of the trike classes offered by either the MSF (Motorcycle Safety Foundation) or a STEP (Sidecar Trike Eduaction Course). Better to learn in a controlled environment than to learn things the hard way.

Don't have the knowledge to answer questions, but I wish you the best in your search, Larry
