Matte black r6?

So I bought my bike with a few scratches on it (highside) and I wanted to get it repainted. We have a paint shop at work so the guy said bring me the paint and the fairings and I'll spray it for you.

After trying to find the color matched paint, I realize the only 100% way is to go to colorrite and give them your first born.

My question, has anyone done their bike matte black, and if so do you have any pictures (03-05 preferred). And do you recommend matte black or leave raven scheme?

Re: Matte black r6?

Ok, so I was talking to my friend who was going to paint it for me today. he said he doesnt mind painting any all parts except the tank.
So, would it look bad it I paint the tail, mid sides and front matte, but leave the tank and bottom gloss?

Re: Matte black r6?

if you're leaving the tank, leave the rest of the bike. ive seen pictures of bikes with the tank left and it looked absolutely horrible

Re: Matte black r6?




^^^ satin black... Just sayin'.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Send it to jamaal, (06r6'n) he has colorrite paint and at least you'll know your first born is in somewhat good hands.

Special Thanks to GIJoe007 for this sig.
