Bike idea (need help)

Hey everyone so I am looking at getting my bike painted and Iím looking for some input. I am getting brand new fairings due to someone knocking my bike over so color is no issue. I am just asking for some advise on if it looks to cheesy or not to bad...in the Picture the Grey color is all carbon fiber(not the cheap vinyl stuff either) but with the white I donít know if I should go with a flat white or more glossy also the gold on the fenders is gold mesh. Anyway any advice would be great thanks. Also the black Kawasaki sticker would be a flat black so itís real subtle and the black lines are just to show the separation of fairings. thanks for any help.

-Travis

i think the color combo would look awesome and really make the wheels pop. as for flat or glossy, i would say that would come down to more personal preference; which are you more of a fan of?

Flat white is more bright under daylight. It looks pure bright white. It gets dirty a lot faster than gloss and its a little harder to clean. Looks badass tho. Satin pearl white is also a nice one...look it up

Personally, I like the color sceme a lot, but I would do something to break up the white sections just a little. If you plan on putting any of the decals back on after painting, that's probably enough, but otherwise a little grey striping or something to match your other pieces would be good

I wasn't set in my ways on the color white I just thought it was kind of different and may pop good with the carbon fiber and gold but i am open to different color schemes if anyone has some different ideas

Go to a bike night and count the green bikes. Then count white and black.


I don't even see as many green kawis nowadays because everyone wants to paint them white.

That is a poll, not an actual count of the bikes on this site.
