Not sure who makes that side fairing, but that sure is a snazzy tail section.

It's a body kit from lent automodified in indonesia https://www.facebook.com/lent.automodified they do various colours and such for the R25 / R3 , Not sure how you go about purchasing a kit as i've not been in contact with them

Some examples of others - https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?...972490.-2207520000.1439576790.&type=3&theater / https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?...972490.-2207520000.1439577029.&type=3&theater / https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?...972490.-2207520000.1439576791.&type=3&theater

Excuse the noob question, but is there a way to paint the black plastic fairings on a stock bike or can it only be covered with decals?

They can be painted. Lots of videos out there on this topic.

For the basics, watch here: Quick overview of the process of prepping. Finish painting is similar.

I'd also suggest using a Tack Cloth before priming AND before final painting.

You can also spray using Rattle Cans instead of a compressor and spray gun. Just practice a lot first on something if you've never done it before.

Or, have it done professionally if that fits your budget.

Also if you're impulsive and change your mind every day like me, you can use Plastidip with their glossifier to give a custom paint appearance

The bike in the photo is not an R3. Look at the frame, swingarm, wheels, forks, etc. Maybe it has an R3 engine?

Most of these full customs coming out of SE Asia were once R25-R15's but have become Frankenstein in a way, using R6 forks, GXSR swingarms, etc.
