Thanks for the input. yeah, I'm not sure what it would look like in person, but it might look good and original. I just don't want the all traditional red with white number plates. (actually, this scheme might look ugly because my first year in racing is going to require me to have yellow number plates). But thanks though for the feedback, it's good to get it.
The Power Of Dreams,
Sorry, I will be keeping my stock fairings in case I convert back to street. I really want to get a new R6 if i could afford it and may end up tracking that bike the following year and putting the 600rr on the street. Who knows though, only if I make more money :)
Awesome! I'll try that out. Can I paint those plastic mids without a problem? I'm wondering if getting the frame painted will be a hassle too, I imagine it would. Putting the vinyl on the frame shouldn't be a problem though, unless it doesn't adhere to that surface well. Awesome though, I'll give it a try on the next round.
Awesome, thanks for the feedback. I think people like it more because it's traditional and it stands out more. I will most likely go with the black which is also the requirements most likely from the race club.
Hi, yes, this will be my first, novice year. You're right, the red most likely isn't allowed. I assume it would be more difficult to read a red number from far away then black. I wasn't thinking also, my novice year I have to have yellow number plates. Great advice, I will definitely try to paint it on my own the first time. I actually have a little project for myself to try to repair my Hotbodies fairings so it would be perfect timing to try to learn to paint them also.
I see what you're saying about the darker belly pans. My primered plastics look dirty as hell :) If I go through all the trouble of trying to paint it though, I'm pretty sure I'll consistently clean it to make the scheme shine. Right now, my bike is way dirty though because it's just primer :)
Thanks for all the feedback everyone! I'll post up more pics later to try some of the ideas everyone has given. These forums are great.
