Hi guys,

First post!

Need some advice. I'm thinking about starting a little Ninja project, I'll be buying a zx636 2005 in a couple of weeks (Once I've sold my J1) and have had an idea but some people have said it'll look awful whilst other say it'll look awesome!

So the plan would be to paint the frame, swing arm, rear sets/pillion pegs and both wheels a light candy blue colour, whilst keeping the rest of the bike green and black.

I've crudely 'edited' some photos that I'll try and attach below to show what I mean. As well as a photo of the paint swatch.

Any feedback would be great! Positive or negative, just be honest!







p.s If this does turn out to be an awesome idea, don't steal it :p

Ok so mixed responses :p
I'll admit, its a bit 'bold', can anyone suggest a colour which may go with it better?
And no, i plan to ride it till it blows up. From what i've heard, the 2005 is the best model theyve ever made.

I personally don't like it but it may help lessen the chances of it getting stolen.

Fuck the haters. It's your bike. :D
No hate man. I just think it would absolutely kill the resale value of the bike and in my opinion, it looks tacky. It looks like it needs a 330 back wheel with a 14" stretch and a cereal/candy brand themed paint job.

It's all good, and yes, a 330 rear + 14" stretch would be AWESOME!

Haha :D I'll take that as a pretty strong No then :p
Although I do like the fruit loops idea, maybe if I got coloured tyres... hmmmm.
