I have a red 700xx that I want to change out the one piece of red plastic for a black one, do you guys think a Maier one would match the factory black? Anybody done this?

Dont do it!!!!! We are losing the race between black/red and black/gray. Dont believe the hype, the color of the plastics don't make it faster. Its the rider that matters. And yes it probably would.

I'm new here but I feel the pull towards the darker side.

It will never be a true black one but you can try.

I haven't priced the plastic piece from Honda directly, I'll probably do that before I get too trigger happy.

I actually didn't realize that Honda sells the std plastics in silver & red & a special metallic version. There is not a black available from Honda that is the same color as the rest of the fenders.

Thanks for the info Remington, your quad looks great.

The black Maier is more shinny and "darker" than the OEM. The OEM have a "little gray" but match very well after few months or trail riding (scratch...)

I bought the OEM black directly from Honda. Its from the special edition 2009 xx. Its got the funky gear decals on it, but it matches perfectly of course. I believe its called Chaos metalic black. $165.00 for the special edition black, I believe the metalic grey (actually called devil silver) are around $75.
