Should I paint my bike? I usually have all sorts of fabulous ideas, but for the bike I have no clue. I was thinking some crazy ass shade of green w/ a ton of metal flake



Feel free to photoshop

I like blue, but that's pretty Yamaha-ish.

Honestly? The color you have now irs more appealing to me. Sport bikes and metal-flake paint just DO NOT mix in my mind, but I admit that I'm a traditionalist in this area.

If it were me and wanted something REALLY different, I'd dissassemble the bike right down to the frame then powder coat the frame, seat sub-frame, clip-ons and the wheels with a dark anthracite black/gray with just a HINT of flake. Maybe the rear swing-arm as well. I'd leave the forks alone, both for function and for a touch of highlight to match the faring silver. Add in a smoked wind screen and you have one killer ride...

Green is a Kawi color, though... No self-respecting Yamaha rider would dream of that. Expect to be taunted as a Kawi "wannabe". icon_razz.gif

TLR have the WORST forks for sport bikes, so if and when I decide to rip down the bike and paint it, those forks will not be going back on.

Cant afford that ;-) I might polish the frame, but as for the body plastics I need to PAINT it so I can do it myself. Chroming is something I am not yet able to do in my garage

Not sure what kind of bike you have, I can't see your pic at work (must be hosted on a photo place). Anyways, a bike I saw once that stunningly HOT is 1/2 orange, 1/2 black, with the white and silver stock stickers. I'll dig up a picture if you're interested.

It used the line sof the bike to switch color. Gas tank, front fairing, upper side fairing, front fender = orange. Black = lower side fairing, rear fairings. Some people think Harley, but the black and orange used was so hot, nobody thought of "harley colors".

This is my buddies bike after he looped it doing a wheelie:


This is his bike after buying some new plastics, doing a rattle-can paintjob, adding factory stickers, and of course... a little elbow grease


I'm painting my bike this winter too, getting it ready for Dayonta Beach. But it's a secret... so I'll post pics whenthe bike is done icon_smile.gif
