the neon yellow is such a PIA to work with. it looks different under every single shade of light!!! i thought i was going safe thinking all neon yellow is the same haha but i like the final result so far!!

That's a bad ads jacket! You better buy it or I'm going to hahaha

I'm all over this can't wait to see what you come up with! Would love you more if you do the swingarm and frame to match the rims! This would look sweet with white or flat black fairings. Oh my hampster is spinning

I didn't want to overdo! The neon is supposed to be just accent color. White with black trims and black lowers with a neon yellow pinstripe is gonna look great. and no my gear is gonna be all blacked out!!

WHAT SUCKS: FORKS ARE STILL KAWI SE RED :O:dowhat im worried they might ruin everything. but i hope not lol, hope it looks kinda cool like this suit....i might get this suit tho for track days!

That's a sick race suit!

Hmmm the red forks. Do you have a tool and due shop near you or fixture shop?

I can't remember what it's called but we used to use this liquid and you brush it on the metal and it turns it black. It's been a long time since I used it. Not sure if its ink certain metals that react but ill have a look!

Another thing I have found is high heat VHT paint. Take SOS pad and cleaner just to remove any possible oil or road grime and you may get swirly marks which is good but doesn't matter

The VHT seems to bond really well and I'm a fan. I will get the I do off the can here its just a can and says VHT I'm actually not sure exactly what type of paint. I use it for any engine parts and stuff up to 500*F

i just didnt want to go through the trouble of removing the forks, i couldve painted them for sure....but not powdercoated. that would require full disassembly and resealing etc i will deal with it for now i think

who powder coated your rims and how much if not a secret?

Well be a cheap ass! Just masking tape and cover with paper the areas you don't want to get sprayed! That's what I do if I need parts on to follow a design. It's kind of tedious but hey! I bet it will turn out great! If you need help on how to tape it let me know but it's really basic! Cover everything you don't want to be painted and cover everything else from overspray

:2fingerlol:Your bike looks insane!! I think you did a great job with the color scheme. It's the first bike I ever seen like this n it's sick as hell. Here's a pic of my baby it's a pearl white. I bought it off the guy like this already. I'm planning on updating some parts for next yr since I'm low on dough now but I think your bike is better :2fingerlol:
