Re: My 03 R6 Build

I just finished painting my '04 in the plastidip. Looks pretty badass. I'll post some pics up as soon as I get the chance. It's definitely a bit different then normal paint, but looks great and does peel off easy. I'm just worried about how well it'll clean up (from road grime and bugs and all), and it does show little scuff marks, and I'm not sure if they'll ever go away with washing it or anything. We shall see!

Re: My 03 R6 Build

Well Ive collected more parts but have not really had the time to do any real work to the bike. Plus its cold and my garage is pilled full of christmas crap still. But here is what I have waiting around.
added some color to the bike. It will all be black and gold.

still need to get the tank painted and then order some new yamaha badges in gold, im getting rid of the silver ones.

got this stuff to use as a heat shield for the fairings, im also going to wrap my exhaust all the way to the muffler.

got some new clip ons since my throttle side is bent front the previous owner. Going to paint them subbie gold to go with the "theme". Also going to paint the clip ons to get rid of the silver.

Got my order from Ron Ayers for a shit ton of misc u nuts for the fairings. Also got a rear brake res and smog plates from AGG, and a flasher for my flush mounts and taillight that I added.

Got some new grips for the clip ons.

got all my gear collected. Thinking about some over pants since my ride to school is going to be about 30miles each way.

Only thing else I need is to save up for some frame sliders and spool and put everything back together.

Re: My 03 R6 Build

Got my clip ons painted today.


I need to find a satin clear for them. I like the current finish but I worry that without clearing them they might wear bad.
