Possibru. Guess it depends on what shade of red

Not quite a raven... but black with red



Jolly pop red with "flake" added to it and clear coated. All powder

Very subtle hints of red else where ;-) such as the adjusters on the ASV levers, rear spring is already red, and the trim rings on the headlights

I don't like the look of red rims on the black bike, I think I have seen 2003 limiteds like mine with maroon matching rims and I don't like it.




That being said. I have seen many black bikes with a hint of red and it looks awesome.

Just picture mine without the flames

That looks a lot better than the all black bike with gold forks!

NOT a fan of the red windscreen though! :thumbdown :yuk: Or any colored windscreen for that matter. :yuk:

And get some flush mounts and get rid of those reflectors!!! :fact

Anyways I figure, blacked out bike with red rim tape and 90 degree valve stems, maybe change the r6 decals to red. Those added to the suspension spring color (if it's red like mine) adds enough little red highlights and it looks great!

Most important keep it clean, I get lots of compliments asking if my bike is new. People are surprised it's 10 years old. Amazing what wash and wax actually does...
