Going "dark(ish)" with the 910R

Hey guys... ive been thinking about going "dark(ish)" for my 910R... Its past 55,000kms now, past the point that I would sell the bike, and some of the bits need redoing (re-anodizing, re-painting, etc). So i have been thinking about changing the look at little!

This is my very quick/dirty photoshop idea... Its a little hard to show it exactly the same as mine as i have the arrow shorty on mine, but you get the idea. I would be interested in input from others, any other good ideas or thoughts?

First cut before and afters:

Do the engine matte black and leave the rim stripes off....also an Arrow thunder in black carbon might look good there .

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

My problem with going all black is you lose the detail in the bike.

Sure the black is cool but i can't see shit in that second pic. If it were on the street all in black, i wouldn't look twice because it wouldn't stand out.

You need to look at James' bike. He got it spot on. Bright colours grab your attention even if it's on the other side of the carpark. That's the way to go with the MV's IMO.

Thats OK! i ride with some F4 owners, they can attract the attention... all bling and no sting!

Oh - i haven't got the fun tokens to match Jame's 910R!

Try a few air brush places and see who will deal.

Prepping the parts yourself saves a lot of $$$.

You can paint the radiator plastics and frame cover yourself for peanuts.

I still say keep away from black unless it's something you are really keen to have. I think white works very, very well. $400 to paint your wheels, $400 to paint the rear seat and tank at a spray painter. Is that within your budget?

Nice Simon, I like the red on the rims, detail. Get Ade to do a seat job. Not sure how you'd go at keeping pipes black and shiny.

You realise that once you started something like this, there is no turning back
