Those suggestions from MoB just gave me the idea off having the rims of my black C14 liquid power coated in Kawasaki green. That should look amazing... just not with Öhlins suspension. Those look amazing by themselves.


Have you looked at this thread Martin? Here's a pic with black bodywork and Kawi green wheels...  8) :thumbs: :chugbeer:

Is powder coat resistant to brake fluid?   :-\

Could make future caliper rebuilds expensive.

ZG, your projects have me doing mock ups with green painter's tape.  ::)

On a black 09 it doesn't take much tape, roughly applied, to start looking squidly.  :D

Are you ever going to get that bike back on the road, Jay?  I think that you ought to at least enter it in some MC shows after you're done.......if you're ever done, that is.

Thanks Sparky!  :chugbeer:

That's the advantage of the multiple sets of bodywork and wheels, I don't need to stop riding her while I play with options, when they're all done the only down time is install.  :)

As for shows, haven't thought too much about it, I would like to see it in some more magazines though, just don't know how to go about that and who to contact...   :-\

If anyone has some connections hook a brutha up!  ;) ;D :grouphug:
