Help Deciding Wheel Color

I have an '07 White CBR and I'm just tired of the black wheels. I'm going to get them powder coated but I don't know what color. The SS lines are white, blue banjos, and gold banjo bolts. Sprocket is black with white chain (in retrospect I should have ordered the blue sprocket and gold chain but I got a deal on what I have now). And I have Driven D3 grips that are black aluminium with white grips.

Sooo, whatcha got?

P.S. I had initially planned on doing a blue Konica Minolta replica but, it seems a bit overplayed now. Going to try something different or maybe stick with the blue KM...really just not sure.

It's actually in pieces right now in my garage, but I'll get one here in the next hour or two. Gotta travel to it since it's across town

That's what I always say!

Too bad my forks are still black instead of gold. I love that look. I'll never understand why Honda keeps using black on them.

I'll get one up by tonight. I forgot I gave my garage key to my roommate (ironically and unfortunately it's a one of a kind key and can't be replicated easily) and he's at work presently.

I look pretty great in a blue shirt and pink tie, but I'm not sure on a bike that would jive. Boom. I'm a rapper by night.

And hey, the best laid plans often find ways to just not work. As it turns out, my friend (who runs a dealership body shop) said he'd do a pearlescent job on the wheels and fairings for the cost of new tires for his bike ($180) and the cost of paint. So now it's back to the drawing board.

For some reason I LOVE white wheels, they SUCK to clean, but I love them! I did my wheels white.


"at 8k i often get the tire to slip a bit(kinda like stoner in motogp) when i start to get on the throttle"

I think Blue wheels would look good w your white RR, you seem to have a few subtle Blue accents as well (Banjos)

Blue would look sick too if you did it right. Gixxers came with blue wheels
