Just make sure if you wrap it use good quality breathable stuff like 3m or avery dennison, you get what you pay for although i was going to have to pay 400 quid for my little Honda msx to get wrapped so paid 240 quid instead for it painted in house of kolor candy purple which is 60 quid a litre on its own.

I have bought a big sheet of gloss carbon fibre wrap to do my own easier parts on my tnt but seeing how i get on doing that myself before going for the pricey stuff.

Some stunning colours available and you can see them on youtube for an idea, matt, gloss, candy, pearl, flip, chrome you name it they do it!

You may consider a vinyl wrap instead of spraying, it may be quicker, easier, reversible and protect the paint, not sure if they do clear but I'd think they would.
Not wishing to hijack and divert the thread....but are we saying the matt finish can be wrapped in to a gloss finish?
I had a previous gloss grey Burgman and got that wrapped,but i did’nt think wrapping would stick to a matt finish,at the moment i am kinda lurking around a matt finish bike,the matt finish is holding me back slightly......

Funkycowie is the forum wrapping king. Sure he's done his scooters more than once.

Never thought about vinyl wrap, will investigate.
There are some YouTube vids showing this process being carried out on a GTS300 Vespa. It's quite amazing just how good it looked afterwards and it makes the paintwork pretty much bullet proof! I don't have a link for you though just yet but I'll see if I can find it later.

congrats , it is a lovely looking scoot an having sat on one at the show the seat is amazingly comfortable , the only part that put me off was i wasn't able to stretch my legs out , hence the reason i went for the burger 400 instead.
the voices may not be real, but they do have some good ideas. ;)

Iagree with last post, why couldnt they shape the footboards so you can get full leg extension.. bit odd, its not like they cant or havent done it as its done on the tmax..

Lucky You. I was looking at a Blue X-Max 400 at my local dealer. He also has a white 300 and they look very similar, but the 400 as the extra touches that enhance the finish. Also more power, parking brake and an extra disc up front.Yeah, I'm very keen on replacing my 400, he did say he could do me a great deal on it if I bought before January! Looking forward to your pictures! I looked at a Burgman 400 the other week, but I think the X-Max has more for your money and more storage, but as you say shorter leg room. I have had my 400 for over a year now and got used to it although I am 6 foot tall. Brother has a T-Max and it has amazing legroom.
enjoy eXtra to the Max

Collecting sometime Wednesday morning, footboards won't be in till new year but no prob. Hope its dry as I will want to do 30 miles at least from the off as always with new bikes.

To answer a few other posts, deal was struck with dealer as scoot was at dealer since beginning of Novemeber, and px/price for either Tmax or Xmax early October was £800 less. Mentioned to them others might be interested in a deal and he said I was lucky as it was in showroom for a while and needed to make "before Xmas" extra bonus form Yam.

While the satin/matte would be a deal breaker as in my posts on Tmax DX, the cost to wrap/spray gloss on 400 would not be the £5k diff., plus I do like the 400.

Dealer is also a Suzi dealer and has new 400 burg in stock for same time. More legroom on Suzi but never more than an hour in saddle for my usage, plus back to back sitiing on both, the Xmax has a far more comfortable seat.

Horses for courses folks. Will try and give initial feedback on Wed or Thurs.
