That is what color P's bike was originally (Orange / Black). But somehow the fairings (and pretty much everything else) did not fair well in the cartwheel episode....

idk, something about that isn't quite "right"


can't quite put my finger on it and I'm not that great with paint but if I can I will play around with it and see what I can come up with


How flexible you are on the colors though?

Black and silver or white and silver not all three un less the white is very suttle. Just make sure what ever colors you do follow the lines dont have a checker look or a patch of color. prime oppertunity for a bad paintjob

What started all of this swapping is that the fairing set arrived with both gray (Matte black) winglets broken.

So if I went with white winglets, do you guys feel that the small patch of silver down low should stay, or should I try to find black?

Thanks for the educated input.

I think white on the tail would give it a flow through look and having black around it top and bottom would be best .... so yeah if you can change that bottom part to black that would look pretty awesome

Honda people all seem to be the same....

Back to the color question. I am searching for the white "wings" for the tailbox.
