Is that actually gray? Mine are black but I'd say under a flash they would look very close to that

Thats not the flash
Got methylated spirits/brake fluid on my ram air tubes that turned to a white haze, couldnt get it off. So used very fine cutting compound now its a high gloss finish.

No one knows how to bring it back to normal and the parts are cheaper in US+shipping then here. $20 part set me back $120 discounted
so mine are flat black on my '10

That kind of looks like the matte black from the '09 mids.

I think that's the factory '10 black color for the covers. Also the same as the 09 mids

It looks like just molded black plastic, no paint. look under part(edge) and see if there is a color difference or signs of painting.

Mine color matches the fairings.

Why do you want them? I actually like the US models painted ones. I'm even thinking about getting them painted in the future

You're right They are just unpainted plastics which is the reason why I envy US bikes.

Wonder why they would do that? That blows.
