Re: Rim Color

hmm hard to say, i always like black that way it always looks good, but orange just might be pretty cool on this bike,, just photo shop orange on it and see how it looks first

Re: Rim Color

i'd say go for the dark blue from the fairings. you will notice the difference but it won't jump out on you.

Re: Rim Color

If your goal is a Repsol replica then you have no choice but to go orange. Looks sharp too! Just make sure it is the correct orange.

Re: Rim Color

I was thinking about the blue... I accually wanted to be different though,
Since there was a couple of the real Repsol 1000 replica's running around here. I think the guy who painted the tank still has some of the orange
left... (Crash Cycles)

But that blue looks awesome... I think

Re: Rim Color

Yea. those are the ebay special... If you look at my gallery I have better
pictures. The main problem with those fairings is the fit. other that that
there super nice. All the stickers are cleared over and the paint it thick.
If I take them off, I spend a lot of time lineing everything up so they
don't look stupid.

Re: Rim Color

Is the fit THAT bad that you would say stay away from them? or it's workable?

Re: Rim Color

naaa... The fit is not that bad my problem is
the plastic if for and 03 and I have an 05. So I have one mounting
point that I can't use... most of the problem is up near the air intake
covers. I had to make an additional bracket...
If I spend a little time shifting the side fairings around it looks pretty
good...

Re: Rim Color

Would also say go for blue.......but I'm a bit biased towards blue

here's my "other" bike......not a Honda but at least it should give an indication of how blue rims look like on a bike
