I changed my drain plug from the recessed allen style (..normal for Ducs) to the exposed hex nut style pre-drilled for safety wiring.

im thinking about painting my R6 fairings WHITE, and the rims PINK.
tank and frame and swingarm would remain black.

everyone says its gay, and generally i hate pink, the whole pink shirt fad disgusts me. but after seeing this...
http://************.com/archive/2011...on-vossen.aspx i truly believe that pink can be pulled off in a non ghey manner for a dude.

my suit is black w/ white labels, and my boots are full white Pumas. lid is the Cathedral Suomy, so thats essentially GOLD, but i believe helmets should never match anything, and be their own masterpieces.

so BLACK tank, WHITE plastics, fluorescent PINK,
pilot BLACK w/ white leathers, gloves and WHITE boots.

This is strictly for track

YAY or NAY!

EDIT: site is sp33d hunters, ONE word, correct spelling. Why the hell is that site name blocked

The car looks clean, but I dunnnnnoooooooo about the bike. I think that pink can be pulled off in some situations, but I'm on the fence bro.

I think that the lime green would likely be sick. Post a picture of your bike!

mag blue? hmmmm... is that like a bright ass neon like blue?
no time for crazy livery, and would really rather spend the loot elsewhere too.

Steve, bike is still in its yellow and black form as i bought it, im not home yet, but i will only have 1 weeek to prep it if i want to do any colors. was gonna look into some plastidip colors.

Then when i say, the black puma bike with the white boots, i get, "oh yeah, i remember you, yeah man your form blah blah blah" and suddenly i had a lot more photos when i bought a photo CD.

So yeah, in a way, thats what it is. trust me, the all black sh1t, youre one of 5 in each group, even if you have all black bike and all white leathers.

but my black bike with gold rims, and a gold puma, and white boots in black leathers. yeah, i stand out.

if i go repsol orange, or neon green wheels on a white YAMAHA, i will have the same effect.
and no chrome is too common to most eyes, so even at the track it doesnt stand out that much, it doesnt arrest one's attention like loud colors do.

Oh! great reasoning. Helmet won't stand out, leathers don't stand out, but wheels will.

I think I just want to put a Hello Kitty white decal on black fairings.

^ cant tell if youre being sarcastic or not. but if you are, most of us have off the shelf leathers, youre rarely ever the only one with that color and style. sam for helmet, even the loudest suomys get missed, i know because ive been rocking them for years now. Plus for some reason, helmets dont get noticed as much unless A. rider crashes, or B. you got a gay ass mowhawk on.
Just think, how many helmets do you remember standing out from your last trackday? mmm, 0, 1?

boots, yes, because you tend to see then when you run up on that rider, or when hes beside you leaned over.
wheels, yeah, colored wheels stick out especially A. aftermarket ones, cause theyre dead sexy and look different form stock, and B. colored ones, because loud colors, safety orange, etc, are meant to catch your eye. thats what theyre made for.

the only helmets i can recall that ever stood out to me, were A. a dude wearing a white suomy flower extreme, cause it was like wtf, and B. a dude with a OGK helmet, cause theyre shaped totally different and EXTREMELY rare in the US.
