Hey guys.....no, I don't do things in halves! I'm hardcore and love to be a little bit different!:)

And yes, the pics don't do it justice. It looks great when daylight hits it. This is the old colour scheme (although I did keep the bodywork and painted a second set in white), so I can return it to stock if I ever choose:

Haven't done 300kmh yet on it, and honestly, I don't plan to. I like my licence in my wallet, not sitting in a drawer at VicRoads.

No trouble with the exhaust. I kept the boom box/cat on there and it's not loud. My Akrapovic is a 'street legal' version with a printed statement of conformity. Also, no trouble with the fender eliminator. Kev....do you have any details of this blitz? How long is it for, and is it for certain areas of the entire Melbourne metro?

So, last week, I was prepping the decals for the sign shop, and I logged in to the ZX-10 forum to find somebody had posted a pic from Kawasaki PR of the forthcoming 2012 ZX-10R. I really liked the decal design so I decided to do the same thing for my bike.

As the 2011 'ZX-10R' logo doesn't exist anywhere electronically on the web that I could find in an EPS format file, I created it from scratch on my pc, then resized it and converted it to an outline to make the 2012 logo. I also created the '1000' decal artwork on the tail. I had the decals made by a localsign shop, prepped the tank and then I sprayed on the logo with a stencil mask and re coated the tank in matt clearcoat. I think it looks stunning!

Anyways, you be the judge....

PS. Yes, the double bubble screen is going! I love the shade but not the shape. I will spray tinted clearcoat onto the stock screen and refit that.

:chair: sweeeeet.

I'm sure eventually I'll get to your shop once the Foz's 100% (still some teething issues)... Though it's not quite as impressive as i'd be showing the work to the guy that did it :thumbs:

Will catch u soon mate

Not sure what you mean? The tyres only have about 250km of normal street riding on them. For all intensive purposes, I can tell you that they still look like new.

In some pics, there's dust from the shop floor on them. Is that what makes them look unevenly worn to you?
