S1000RR color adjustment

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this really belongs here but I am going to change the color of all my white parts.  The paint has been peeling for a while and I decided if I am going to paint it I will go with something new.  I am thinking a satin black, carbon fiber, or something of the sort.  What do yall think?  Fist picture is original.  To the right of that is a satin black then both bot are carbon.

I'm partial to the satin/matte finishes myself.

I like the carbon fiber look if it's done well but I'm with Jason on the matte look.

I plan to only do the white parts though.  I am thinking that a satin/matte finish would be nice.  If I went carbon it would probably be a wrap or hydro dip.  Either way I go I might slowly replace those parts with real CF parts but im not sure about that yet either.

I've never been a fan of hydrodipping/wrapping things that aren't carbon fiber to look like carbon fiber. 

 

I'd paint it red to match the existing red, or gloss black. Being the front of the bike, I think it would be hard to care for trying to get all the bugs off without scratching the paint. I think the satin would look fine though.

I wouldn't do the wrap or hydro dip without the intention of having the real CF on the bike before to long.  Just would allow me to take the big hits little at a time and that would make it easier to get past SWMBO.
