Hi,

Modified by F quite a lot, one of the things i like is the motogp look at the back with a clean tail, so I've moved the licence plate to the splash guard and painted the sides and underneath of the subframe.

I also have the shoei suzuki helmet so trying to match them a bit better.

I painted the the plastic above the rear light red to match but not sure how it looks, good from some angles bad from others.

Should i leave it red or paint it the same blue as the bodywork?

Also powder coated the rearsets and pegs in black, just waiting for black bolts now!

Wow. What an effort! That looks great and I admire your dedication. Loving the wheels!

To purely nitpick... I think side-on or 3/4 the red at the back absolutely fits, as you get the accent from the bottom as well. If you're rocking the Suzuki helmet too, it all works. From the rear on, however, the red doesn't seem to work as well and you'd pick up that from the light when the beast is on as well. Another personal preference would be to match the front wheel to the rear, but that is just me. Overall, I'd say keep it as is, it looks great - who cares what the people behind think!? And it may just be me that thinks that.

Great work, man. Now you just need the matching leathers, boots and gloves!

don't forget to lose the rear pegs to complete the look.

Ah. Fair enough!

Just make sure she doesn't clash with the colour scheme then, right? :D

Jeepers... She weighs about as much as my meals for the day!

Don't think the girlfriend would be too keen on that!! She loves to be on the back at speed (and she is only 38KG...)

Nearly finished my bike now, can't think of much more to do - just waiting on blue rear seat cowl and rear shock.

Decided i like the red!

I gotta be honest that I was never a fan of them mud/splash guards or whatever they are called but with the plate mounted on it and no upper mud guard at all it looks real neat as does the rest of the bike well done.

Just about finished...

Added a rear cowl in body colour (Suzuki part), painted the tops of the fairings in bodycolour and changed the instrument lighting to Blue

All i have left to do (appearance wise) is get the bottom of the forks painted to match the bodywork/callipers
