My New Paint Job

This is what it looked like when I bought it:

This is after a couple of days:





And this is now, after new paint:









Future plans include some "True Flame" graphics and some Silver Carbon Fiber OE style decals, after the paint fully cures, and gets wetsanded and buffed out.

Re: My New Paint Job

Nice job. Once you get some graphics on it, it'll brighten it up by breaking up all the dark colors.

nice, yeah, some bright graphics are definitely needed tho, even if they are just little white accents here and there it will make the bike pop

Re: My New Paint Job

No way I'm doing white wheels, this is a daily driver and cleaning wheels once a week is enough for me,
Just did an exhaust mod, here's a pic of that, and the new decals.

Re: My New Paint Job

niiiice.... is that a d&d pipe u got there? and also, good job with the decals, not to much, and not to little. its just right.

anf if you powder coat your wheels, and get a nice good coat of clear on them. you can just spray them with water, and whyla! they shine!

Re: My New Paint Job

Yep, it's a D&D, I shortened it by about 8" months ago, but still wasn't happy with the way it looked. Now I'm gonna shorten it about another 2" (so my swingarm doesn't hit it), and try some different packing/insulation. I'm looking for a little deeper tone, yet slightly quieter.

Re: My New Paint Job

yeah i knew it. i use to have that one, and i must say. its the best sounding exhaust i owned. now i have a vance and hines, and it gives it a more race quality sound to it, compared to the deeper d&d sound.

i was wondering though, would shortening your exhaust cause you to feel more heat, since itz right there at your foot.

Re: My New Paint Job

I don't know yet, haven't been able to ride as much as I normally do, I've been having to drive my truck home so my daughter can use it to take her son to school, but her van goes back on the road this next week or so, so I can start leaving my truck at work again, (I maintain a fleet of cars and sometimes use my truck as a service truck, for jump starts and stuff), and riding the bike daily again. I was looking at a bunch of bikes at the track on Sunday, and quite a few of the newer ones come from the factory with similar systems now, so it can't be too bad. I guess it has enough velocity coming out of the pipe that it doesn't rise, it just keeps going.

Re: My New Paint Job

yeah i think your right about that. but im not sure, do they (exhaust) have a slight angle to them, so when the person is at a intersection, the heat doesnt rise?

ive never taken the time to look closely at the new gixxer, so idk..
