    I hate the silver frame build

    So I really hate the silver frame on the blazing orange.. I started going on sketch book to draw different color designs so I know what it looks like before I spend a bunch of money. I'll try to post one a day so I can get some opinions. I like crazy designs that will be very different, so I expect a lot of people won't like them. I'm open to ideas and I can do a few other fz09 colors.

    This is my bike now, it has M4 exaust, yamaha comfort seat, ermax blaze orange seat cowl, graves tail tidy with black bullet signals, hand gaurds with bar end mirrors, retrofit headlight with red angel eye, blue halo, and amber led's, Front flush mount smoked R6 led signals, shorty levers, note 3 holder, 12v socket with 5v usb charger, led spotlight and mra wind screen that I don't use.


    This is the first design and I really like it. Blaze orange frame and side panel with black forks and darker foot peg assembly.


    This is basically the same with purple trim. It would be black candy purple and hydro dipped with hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil film. Picture this but with nice dark candy color so you really have to look at it to see what's going on.


    Would be all of the plastic trim, panels and fenders.



    The next one will probably be black frame with undecided color. To tired to think, it's bed time. I'm might try rust/tarnished metal look. It would probably go with the orange. Mad max bike

    I think a black frame to match the swing arm would look cool. I think the "Hear no evil..." design would look cool on the tank/cowl.

    I like the blaze orange a lot so that will stay for awhile. So many films to choose from though.

    I agree, the silver frame looks like it's out of place. There is ONE LUCKY owner of a Blazing Orange out there that has a black frame and triple clamps. The dealer swapped out the wheels, tank and body trim with a red one.

    Instead of changing the silver frame, what about making the swingarm match the frame?

    I like to black frame idea. Then paint you wheels the same color as the tank.

    Mine-2015 Yamaha R1- Rapid Red/ Pearl White
    2016 DRZ400SM- Black/Gold
    Son-2014 Honda Grom- Red/Black

    I'll probably just do the frame black, but still undecided about all the other pieces. All the plastic just looks cheap. Look at the before and after of the hydro dip carbon fiber, just amazing. This is my local shop.

    Hydro dipping the frame would be a cool alternative to powder coating. Looks like more options that's for sure.
