Question 10/16/01 - What color?

If you were going to custom paint your bike, what color or scheme would you do it in?

Hard question for me, I like so many. Maybe white with a black powder coated frame, swingarm and wheels or maybe a Smokin' Joe replica, as I really like that one. I also think silver with blue Honda wings might look nice.

I've done blue and gold, I've designed white with red and green accents. I'm doing blue and silver on my SV. I think blue and orange has the potential to be really awesome.

I think I like blue!

I really think it depends on the bike. I have seen a Erion 929 with the black frame that had the plastics painted black that looked tight. I saw a silver RC-51 at VIR that was real nice.

Personally, my plan this winter is to redo my -7R in the Suzuka Kawi color scheme. Plain Kawi green, with white on the front and black lowers and tail plates.

I knew I could count on 748abuser for a concise and informative answer.


I noticed the RK chains sticker on the side of the bike.... but, I can't find any listing for anything other then gold RK chains. Anyone know where I can find em?

Check out these guys at the bottom of this page.

http://www.whaccessories.com/Other%20Stuff.htm

or your local bike shop should be able to round one up.

There are two downsides.
1. Cost
2. Shorter chain life. One of the Kawi tuners told me that the life on the chain is much shorter due to the process the use to colour the chain. They don't care cause they get them for free, but that is always a concern to me.
