Yes or No (please be yes took ages) lol

Post  The White One on Mon Nov 24 2014, 16:53

First topic message reminder :

So finally got started on the paint job for the white and black kitty. Have only sprayed the seat hump as would like opinion on colour. The red stripe in the middle I was thinking of spraying black. It is all sprayed no stickers. I know there is a slight flaw on one of the gold stripes but that will just be a touch up when i sprayed the middle stripe. Its not finished still have gold fleck lacquer to go over the top but thought would get opions before lol.

Paint all finished at last, just need to do frame and swing arm, brake lines, wheels, rearsets and passenger pegs and hangers and finally the seat and then is complete. Not sure if you can see but have already painted the fork bottoms black when I rebuilt them earlier this week.

I like the sides, but I think the fashion boat has pretty much sailed on the GT stripes. :/

Side on, it really does look fantastic though. Cool

Did it really take me that long to do it? Lol

I've always liked the stripes but thought I would "jazz " them up a bit.

It's all practice for when I get my spraying business up and running Paul's Custom Colours. I have another cat that I'm going to repray and am taking suggestions for colours and design ideas. It's going to be an advertising bike with the company name airbrushed on the side fairings but not sure whether to do all one colour or different styles, designs and paint (gloss, metallic, pearl, matt etc) on the rest of the panels. Input for this is much appreciated.

Are you jazzing up the indicators too or is it hand signals from now on?

You know, I wasn't sure myself. (I had to check) green smile
It wasn't that far back, but it did take a while and the moment may have passed...but that's just my opinion, and the sides really are minted.  Cool

It also looks like a quality job, regardless of any personal preferences I might harbour. Cool

Not all of them do it, they have some that have just blue flashing dots but I thought these ones looked better. Got them off eBay.Just search LED Yamaha Thundercat intergrated mirrors and should bring them up. Easy enough to fit but you will need to change the flasher relay and if you do LED's on the back there is a mod you have to do behind the clocks to stop residual current getting through and looking like you have hazards on.

Cheers white one. I've already got the chinky mirrors just without the indicators but they vibrate like a twat and at anything over sort of 80mph (cough 120 cough) they fold in which makes things 'interesting' on motorways.
They are just too light
Are them ones any better?

I won't lie, they are light and cheaply made but I have no issues with them. You can tighten the stalk via a hex bolt that stops them folding in. They do vibrate but that's at resonate rpm's but not enough to stop you being able to view things in them. They have been fine all the way up to 135, torrential downpours and no issues. Even if they only lasted a cyear or two I think it is worth the £26 just for the uniqueness and jazzyness lol
