Graffiti Zed1K

The graffiti thread yeserday got my wheels turning.

The bike:

1ze8gmd

The tail was messed up by the previous owner trying to lift it via the plastic fairing. Not tight. It'll get replaced/painted later, so lets have some fun with it for the time being.

155051h

I used metallic silver paint pen in a fine tip and medium tip. Polished the paint with Menzerna's polish to get out the scratches, then wiped it down with alcohol to make sure the paint pens would stick. Its fun and turned out pretty cool I think, may go back and fill in some gaps if I get bored later.

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

No real theme, it jumps around quite a bit.

DizzyZ, what do you want to know? These are the directions I followed, but I used an air grinder and file, and cut the entire top part off. There was only enough material left to hold the filter in

Graffiti Zed1K

There is about 1,000 miles on it since I did the mod, and I really felt a bump in low-end and mid-range torque after doing it. There was a definite growl coming from under the seat, too!

Those both look sick!

The paint on the tank is meed up too- the stickers under the clearcoat are peeling- so I may end up doing it at a later date.

Just don't want to jump that far into it yet haha
