I hope you didn't pay the painter much. He couldn't even keep it inside the lines.

honestly..looks like shit with that color combo.

if anything..a metallic crome yellow, with a high content silver. even then the combo looks better but still yukky

My second choice was Kaw purple

To keep it simple, I think I will just go all silver and just slap some yellow vinyl stickers on the nose and tail for plate backgrounds.

Not to knock your yellow, but its not bright enough for what I am looking for.

I could go OEM, but thats what Fred the CR did.

I am looking more for the motoGP look.

I would have the silver over the yellow in front, and carry the yellow over to the tail, that way, the front fender will match too.

John, are you trying to make your F4i look more like mine?

I can't believe this, first you get the same bike, same Leo Vince hi-mount and now you are going to paint it yellow?







J/K............. I like yellow/silver combo.... I was thinking about that myself, but in reverse basically, whatever you would paint yellow, I would paint silver.... wouldn't that be funny

I like this design here, only paint everything thats blue, silver to match the wings.

OK forget the yellow....Anna likes it too much.
Im surprised she didn't run out and get an RC51.

At this point I am thinking all silver with white vinyl number plates.

I can't find the McDonalds's sponsor on that last picture? I despise red; especially paired with yellow.

Jim made a good point...I need to tie in the black on the tank...Im going to stick with silver and black with white number plates.

Silver upper, black lower, and silver tail.

I think you better accomodate the yellow number plates. Little presumptious to assume you'll be using white isn't it?

Just bustin your chops Kruz!

Is that an option? I thought you had to have a certain amount of experience before going into expert.

Well, if you do it yourself, I've had some success with using a brush on plastic primer, krylon, and a spray clear coat. That's what I am going to do with mine and if I pick up an extra tank.
