its pretty damn close, its just a little brighter but that may fade as the paint evaporates out over the next little while. my local shop uses RM paint and i matched it as best i could with the green samples to the green on a monster can. there wasnt a name on the sample, just a number. if your shop has "antifreeze green" in their library you may try that. if memory serves it seems to be pretty close as well. or you can send them off to get powder coated the correct color.

Thats the problem is powder coating!! From what Ive heard it is dam near impossible to match kawie green with powder. I was lucky and had about 10 lbs of it direct from kawie, but ive used almost all of it on past quads. Now I want to do my new 2 seat roll cage and bumpers and only have about 2 lbs left!!

i cant remember which vendor on here i was talking to about a cage a couple months ago, but he told me that he has the monster green and he does it at no extra charge. he said it was becoming such a popular color that it is kind of standard now. might want to call around and ask for sure though. i think the kawi green is kinda like harley davidson black, never going to get the paint right unless you buy it straight from them.

So can any of the Vendors get Kawi Green Powder coat?
I'm sure there is demand for it from cage builders and others.

I got the sport model in green with the chrome wheels and I was kind of thinking I like the look of the black wheels that come with the monster model but was afraid if I painted them the paint wouldn't hold up good and they would end up looking like crap after a while.
