Personally I haven't seen alot of R6's with paintjobs I liked as much as the factory. Team Yami Blue is teh man. I vote keep it like it is, unless you have some serious rash on it or something.

well the r6 is shaped with a big front section. all the solid colored r6s look weird and dated because it makes the bike look bulky. the ravens are not affected because the black is slimming. keep your blue man. it really is a good looking paint job.

I just got done looking at a few solid ones and a few look good but i agree some colors its just too much... I was talking to Tony and i might throw in some graphics down the side. But i will see. it will be a few weeks before i could do anything anyways just trying to get some ideas and prices
