I'm painting my R6 black, not high gloss, I painted the rear sets and the passenger's pegs already. I still have a lot of work to do since the fairings were all messed up from the previous owner. here are some pics of what i've done so far.

I did other small parts but didn't take any pictures.

PS. None of the pictures are the finished results its just an intro to what is coming.

thanks for looking.

What kinda of paint are you using? Doing alot of prep work or just going right over the top? Looks pretty good by the way

Oh no, we are doing a lot of prep to it. the previous owner drop it a few times and then he painted it without fixing any of the damage so me and ma boy have been sanding a lot. it is a lot of primer and sanding(no sander its all man power) .. after that the paint part is "easy". but the clear coat is being a pain in the a**!!!! it keeps on turning white in some spots. but i think its because of overlapping so tomorrow we are going to try doing extremely think coats to see what happens.

one more thing.. Does anyone knows how to take the tank off?? do i have to take all the gas out or something? :confused:

BTW I'm using automotive acrylic enamel because I'm going with flat black..

the tank will only drip a couple drops when you disconnect the lines because of the space age hose attachments.
thanks, so do i have to empty the tank out before or after i take it off? and how can i empty it out??

like i said its not going to leak when you disconnect the lines, so you empty it AFTER you take it off.
