i was looking around on the internet for people that customize their r6 and i seen this 03 silver r6 polished everything , looks really nice thinking about doing the same, it would probally look really phat on the black with red flames

Something like this ???

The bikes not mine but I photoshopped the spokes from black to red for somone.

I think it looks pretty good.

i like the polished frame. i was planning on doing the same thing to my black w/red flames, even the high mount devil pipe. after staring at it for a while it just dont look right with the red flames. thats just my opinion. as for me i would just paint either the whole bike another color or just paint the lower fairings black and peel the decals off. besides i dont like the idea of spending my time polishing a frame when i could be just riding around.

maybe later on i will have the motivation to do something wild and have time to polish my frame and wheels.

nice bike though........

I'm currently working on polishing my 03 r6 frame along with just about every part you can see with the farings on it. I wasn't planning on doin it right away, but after I dumped it, I had to rip it apart... so I figured I don't want to ever rip it apart again, so nows the time. I'll post some pictures of the work I've done so far in a bit.

Tguy, how long did that take you? Looks like a pain in the ass. I wouldn't do it but it looks nice. I like the polish on the silver but i dont think it looks right or matches as well as the black.

Yah, it's a lot of work. I'm not even near done. I've got many hours of work ahead of me still. I did glass bead all the parts to get a majority of the paint off. Not having to sand that off saved a lot of time. My bike was originally silver/black, but it is going to be bright ass orange now. It should look pretty different, which is the idea.

That is the pipe I want on my bike...different color though.

Does anyone have this.. I have heard it on one other R6 and it sounded good.
