Possible tweak (blue on top of tank; larger Kawi emblem):



The reason I didn't do the top of the tank blue CSK is my painter only gets all the parts, not the bike nor them mounted on the bike, so being able to have the lines all line up 100% perfect would be quite challenging and could look really bad if even off by a quarter inch or the angle be wrong. Doing the line on the blue section at the top of the inner mids to match up with the upper line and angling it up to the black plastic top covers on those mids was relatively easy to measure and came out perfect, you'd probably have to see it in person though to understand what I'm trying to say... :-\


As for doing bigger Kawi badges, nah, I like using the oem badges, which still makes it look like it could be an actual oem color to folks that might not know any better...  ;) ;D :chugbeer:

Is it just the perspective that makes the front badge look like Kawasakl ?
Just the angle of that one shot and the shadow I guess GP...  :-\
It looks great in person!  :chugbeer:

The dot of the "i" is attached and the lowered section between the top of the "i" and the dot doesn't show up quite so much in other color combos, but with the contrast between white and black being so high it does look like a "l" instead of "i". Perhaps just a dab of white out correction fluid in the lowered section would be in order just for photos? Staging is everything, so they say.

Hmmm, can I see it with the white smuggler on there? (I'm sure you have one right?)  ;D

Actually, I think I agree with you.  If the smuggler were white, it would make the white "stripe" through the bike complete and might look even better!

Jay, I liked the silver, the black, the green, the red, but this one looks like something Johnny Cash would write about:

For me, a dark color is difficult to change to a light color, but here's the idea:

I had some white left over, so I am having another front fender sprayed in white, but I didn't want to do the smuggler trunk in white for 2 reasons, I'd have to buy another smuggler trunk and the large rear Corbin trunk is blue, so when the large trunk is mounted as well the color will flow better.

Yep, it will be in the rotation FM!  :)


I'm still trying to decide what color wheels would look best though with the solid blue set...  :-\
