What's up fellow FZ-09'ers!!! I just wanted to start this build thread to take you guys on a little journey of my buddy's 2015 Cadmium Yellow build, he's more of a "MADE-NOT BOUGHT"-hands on kind of guy and I figured that everyone here may enjoy some unique FZ-09 porn. This may be a little long, ANY FEEDBACK that you guys have FEEL FREE TO SHARE!!! ALL FEEDBACK is welcome!

Picked up the bike 12/17/14

Keep the pics coming.
How well will the Cerakote hold up on the forks?
Applying that material difficult?

The Cerakote was applied by a local company in NH, it's expected to hold up pretty well. It's MOSTLY used to coat firearms, I'm also having the composite engine protection covers for my R1 coated with Cerakote as well...I'll post pics as things progress!!!

Thanks for the feedback!!! He's pretty crafty!! I'm pretty sure once he finalizes the fender eliminator he'll powder coat it as well, if you guys have ideas chime in!!!

Holy S---! I love the yellow rims and black forks. That is awesome. But before anyone gets too excited Red is still the best and fastest color.

All kidding a side your friend is on to something here. It looks great.

I love how the black forks look on this bike! I just hope the owner did not got through all the trouble of disassembly only go put back the stock fork components!

Also for some reason my eyes seem to pick up a color discrepancy between the wheels and the rest of the bike. I am just seeing things or is this true?

I think there is a slight difference but the yellow wheels with the black forks look super. The finish on the forks is perfect in matching the frame. Ideas, ideas. Thanks for sharing 2FNQUIK!

I really like the Yellow FZ, but the all yellow wheels, not so much. I would have probably just left the wheels all black except a stripe of yellow maybe about 1/2" wide around the edge of the wheel........more like rim tape.
