Take those front reflectors off and it'll clean the front end look up.... Who cares about visibility to other motorists :P

    Did you put a new windscreen on it? or did you tint that one?
    Thanks ! The windscreen is painted black on the inside and was on the bike when I bought it. I have acquired a stock screen and plan on putting that one on soon. I took your advice and remove the reflectors which is a nice improvement to the appearance. The side marker lights should provide that function to other motorist. Every change in appearance does take some time to get use to and I often question whether or not it has improved the look of the bike. The red tip tool awhile to get use to, but it does give it a unique look, but also draws your eye to that area of the bike. For the intakes, I wanted to get rid of the plastic, cheap look of the bike and painting the parts helps with that. It also lessens the ugliness of that part of the bike which could have been designed better. Its fun to see what the bike can become by doing a few visual mods and a more personalized look. I would have preferred an all black FZ6R with the silver frame accents. All in all, I'm really enjoying this bike and for the money you can't find a better bike. Cheers !

    After seeing what you did with the tail, I went ahead and did the same thing. Absolutely love it. Primed, wet sanded and went with a satin finish but after so much wet-sanding it looks semi-gloss.

    Nice work ! That's how I started out, but when I applied my clear coat it didn't go well and I wrapped it. I prefer it being painted and will eventually try again. The satin/semi gloss look is what I was going for also. Your bike should go faster now !!

    Lol, the paint does add on a few hp! When painting the satin black on, I wet sanded it between 3 coats. I then used 2000 grit sandpaper on the final coat and wet sanded it very lightly to smooth it out. Once it dried, I applied satin clear coat over it to protect it. It worked out very well but took several days to complete the whole process mainly due to the time it took to cure.
