Picked my parts up from the spray shop this afternoon, really pleased with the results.
Was a bit pi$$ed off it was raining all day as i was really looking forward to fitting them tongueout
He asked to have an origional part just in case the paint wasn't a perfect match so the seat unit is the origional red, think he's done quite well, looks almost spot on to me.

Got a day off in the week so if the weathers good i'll fit the panels and get a nice shot in the sun...
Just the wheels to go now and a handful of choice goodies

Yeh bang on the money there mate, took full advantage of the weather and got loads of jobs done. First on my list of my priorities was getting the blade built up again and it all went well, no real problems other than the wiring for the Hotbodies indicators, they run so close to the pipe i decided to re-route the wiring so they don't get frazzled & brittle on longish rides, it's still not bolted on as i'm waiting for my small strip number-plate to turn up, once that's here it just needs to be fastened on correctly and the indicators plugged in, hopefully a 20min job.
The colour match is spot on, i did have doubts that it wouldn't look like the origional paint but he has got it almost perfect. Here's a few shots taken in the sun, can't wait till i get the wheels done, that should be the icing on the cake (for me).



Even had enough time to fix the Bandit and put an extra phat lock on my garage door.

I like it as it is but I guess if your thinkin it's to red then the honda decal would help break it up a little.

What colour are you having the wheels done?

Yeh, after plenty of looking at different angles and plenty of head scratching i've decided to have a couple of stickers made up for it, it just looks a bit empty.
Gonna do the wheels Arizona Gold, was also thinking about doin them in the same red but that would be a bit overkill, at one point (before i see it all fitted) i was intending on doing the spokes & hub red and the rims gold but i've changed my mind now i've seen it together. screwy

Yeh, i'm gonna have the vinyl company make up some gold decals for the lower fairing, not sure what decal i'm gonna use though, at the moment i'm thinking CBR1000RR because i've taken them off the seat (think it looks nicer without decals) or i may just put the same Honda decal back on.

It wasn't me that bought the carbon engine cases, i'm not covering those but i have been pondering on the idea of having both cases gold chromed but that's just an idea and it's bloody expensive.

I think you'd be better of having them gold effect powder coated, or if you really want to be flash then incorporate a clutch window?

As i said it's just something in the pipeline, once the wheels are done and the last handful of carbon bits go on that will be it for a while other than little bits like crash bungs (front mid & rear).

The other thing i want to do is ride the bloody thing Laughing
Not been on it since last year, it's gonna scare the $hit out of me rofl

I take that as a compliment Haggler, Ducati looks with the added bonus of reliability, that's good in my books, It'll look even more like one once the wheels are sprayed gold i suppose ohmygod

Cheers Cabbie, the main thing is i'm happy with it...and the bike don't look too bad either Laughing

Cheers Griz & FBF (i know how hard that must've been for you FBF seeing as it's Satan's colour)... It's all about personal taste really, some people like 100% stock bikes, some just like a pipe'n'tail tidy and some like to do major mods like you (Griz) and Cabbie, their not gonna cater to everyones taste but each to their own. This is one of the reactions i got from another site, i've just literally copy/pasted this quote...

"Step away from the 1KRR ...now!!
It's gorgeous as is, looks amazing in that red/black
and such stunning looking condition too ...nooo, don't do it!!"

I don't get many replies from that site nowerdays rofl rofl rofl rofl

God what a carry on, I think it's always cool to get help with tech problems with yer bikes on forums but when it comes down to taste there's really only one person that you'll make happy & thats YOU! Laughing When you start sayin I like this colour & this type of mod you can darn well bet your gonna get 10 other's choosing a different colour for you or whatever! rofl

To be fair, I got a little carried away with the punisher! screwy Laughing but the amount of grief I had off of some was funny & then to balance it out I also had a load of people totally lovin it! It all comes down to taste & what you like.

I think ya gotta stick to yer guns as it's your bike & your choice of mods, sod what the rest of um think!! fingersup bleh Laughing

Looks good WB I'm sure it looks even better in the flesh when the wheels are done. When I got the 04 I was not impressed with the dated graphics but in the flesh the satin blue added another dimension on visual effects. The bike was on display at the BMF club stand when some guys approached to look at the new blade, they had just passed the official Honda display. As the old cliche goes beauty is in the eye of the beholder with my seniority now its mileage. LOL
