Long time no post haha!! Looks good!

I did the same thing on my last bike but in yellow :)

I hated it in bright yellow, but once it got a little dirty then I thought it looked great!

Kawi green is pretty unique but you can find something close or if you are really serious you can buy Kawi green and apply it with your own fine brush

I actually just threw out a spray can of Kawi Green I have had for years. I bought it for my 2001 Ninja 250...which has been sold for about 5 years

I think car tire sidewalls, in general, are probably a little less stiff, so the paint could crack and flake off more easily.

/complete guess

from my experience in the past, this idea works a treat on the tires where it says the manufacturer name etc, but thats about it. do a few coats on the tires & let it dry first before next coat & it usually lasts a few weeks before flakes off & then redo

You can buy paint pens anywhere. Literally most shops will have them, any hardware store, supermarkets, some service stations, newsagents are another good one, stationary stores..........etc. Its just classed as a stationary item so different thickness tips you will have better luck getting at either a newsagent or stationary store. Ask for a white paint pen.

I did my tyres in October last year, two coats in the lettering. Is still there now, a little cracking on the front tyre but to be expected as it takes most of the initial shock/force. No flaking of paint as of yet and still as white as it was when i first put it on. And I have washed my bike at least on 10 different occasions since.

The brand I used was:

Artline 400XF Paint Marker

Cost around 1-2 dollars.
