That stock scheme was wicked! I do feel like your blue is missing something though, the R may be what it needs. Either way it looks sweet!
Thanks black_out, I just need to find the right graphic!
Isnt that basically one of the OEM colors, without graphics, that you just made?
Looks good, but sadly most people see "custom paint" as "crashed" you would have been better off swapping the plastics sadly.
EDIT: the OEM colors black and blue are swapped.
Still looks good, I just hesitate to paint good OEM fairings.
Thanks Moto! I haven't seen any stock schemes with blue and silver. Blue and black, blue and white but not blue and silver, hence the "slightly different" I went middle ground! lol
Not worried about people thinking it was wrecked. I doubt I will ever sell this bike, I will probably just start adding to the stable. A bike for whatever mood strikes me!
not into the clean look.. add decals to make it a race bike?
just my bits of comments, my taste
Not into a lot of decals, if anything I will just do an R and maybe something around it.
I like it, but it needs the red R. My opinion, a Gixxer is signified with the red R. Not a fan of a ton of stickers on a bike. Nor am I a fan of not having any. One or two small decals in the right spot. Those one or two being the red R. White and Blue also signify the Gixxer. Regardless of how many other people have that scheme. I don't know why anyone would want to change that. Similiar to a Red Ducatti. +1 on not painting good oem fairings. Should have left it alone. Looked great, stock.
I haven't seen anyone else with Blue and Silver unless I missed it somewhere (which is highly likely
), it's similar to the others, but slightly different. Many other people also do away with the graphic on the tank and go full color there. I agree with your red R stance, but it's doubtful I want something that bold on the color scheme now. I was thinking of possibly a black outline of the stock R with GSX underneath and letting the blue of the fairing be the filler. We'll see.
Looks sick, agreed with the red R.
I liked the original color better......................what happened to the rear cowl?
A lot of people felt that way before I painted it, but I just wasn't in love with the stock color scheme. Plus, I noticed that many other drivers seemed to have increased difficulty in "picking me up" in their sight line with a darker bike.
The rear cowl is still being worked on, we lost my father 6.5 years ago to Pancreatic Cancer and I had a decal for him on my old bike. My buddy is doing some ghosted graphics on the cowl for me. Something a bit more personal. As stated above, doubtful I will ever sell this bike, but if I do, the cowl is something I can easily hold onto.
Thanks again for the comments everyone!
