OK.. I can't seem to find the paint colors online to post the options but I am between 2 colors on my bike.

black with a pearlized finish (looks like regular black but sparkles like mad in the light and looks lighter in color)

Dark (almost black) smoke grey metallic

I was originally going to go gloss black but It seemed boring after I started to look at other paint options. Im not going translucent because of cost, so i have narrowed it down to these 2 options. The other decision is whether or not I should paint my middle fairings or leave them stock (flat black) I thought it would look good to leave the middle fairing flat black and have the rest the Dark Charcoal metallic color.

Please post up.. im interested in what you guys think

How about all flat-black? Just like those GP test bikes... :yesnod

If not, then I would say the Dark Charcoal metallic.

Yeah.. I love all black too. thats where this all started. I almost went flat but I love metal flake paint. I just think it looks great in the sun. Im leaning towards the Dark Grey. I will sell you those clear lens if you want them. Im integrating the tail light. I was thinking 12-15 bucks shipped.. let me know otherwise, ill ebay em.

gawarrior... bike looks tight:rock
