Here is my monochrome 54. As soon as I find someone who wrecks an 03 red/black it will be all black and I'll have a full spare set of bodywork for track use.

Great looking bike!










Just stay away from my 954's upper.

ccwiili is right, It's Ferodo rotors and Marchesini's. They made an unbelievable difference in acceleration. I think more than the exhaust/map did and it does 149.1 @ 13.2 AF ratio.

So, Bill, tell us how you got the wing off the tank, dude.
Was it a re-paint, and if so, why didn't the upper fairing get done too?

By the way, looks excellent so far.

I have been buying spare parts as I find them for track use next year. I got a Silver tank with some scratches, did the repairs and had it painted black along with all of the flat black OEM plastic (sprocket, duct, chain covers). I decided to get the OEM black upper so paint chips don't show. There are some nicks in my silver one and I figured I painted it black they would eventually show up. The OEM one is black all the way through and will hold up better. The body shop I use for all of the fiberglass work we do thought that was a better idea but that's probably because he doesn't charge me.

I thought about doing the swingarm black but I think it looks too nice to hide under black powder coat. If I find a spare swingarm I'll get that done black just to see how it looks. I have a local powder coating place that I do a lot of business with and they 'll hook me up. Job perks rule. When I get my black ZX10 I will be monochrome man. Track bike, 954, ZX10, Acura Legend, CRX all black. I'm cleaning something every day.
