I didnt' I took them off a few days before my track day. At my track day, I laid her down. So, new paint scheme, or new fairings are in store. Once i get the broken pieces replaced (which is VERY close)

He is probably just pissed off because he is still on a 2001 f4i and you're on a new bike. He is also probably twice your age and has no money to spend his stock bike because his wife has his balls in her purse.

That is all just an assumption though. One thing for certain: He lives in Eugene. I would act like a little bitch too if I lived there. Eugene can suck my balls.

The tank cover is a piece of cake to take off. I had planned on taking it off and having the clear re-shot after my track day.... knowing that the little 'edge' was there, bugged me. Not really my style.

RC52: Not completely sure what color I am going to do yet. I will probably stick with White (cause its clean and simple). But I am going to do some Carbon Fiber body parts, and Paint OVER the CF with white, but leave some sort of design unpainted, so whatever scheme I do, the design will be CF, and the contrasting color will be white. I dont have a specific design in mind yet. But I can guaruntee, that it will look amazing.

Actually, being "owned" is spending over a grand on mods before you even ride the bike 5,000 miles. Then doing your first track day, trying to be cool and go wayy to fast for your newb, crossed up riding ass, and crashing your bike. That sir.... is ownage.

Maybe you should stop worrying about how your bike looks, and start learning how to ride? Just an idea...

lol. I haven't spent even close to $1k on mods. Maybe you should quit worrying about me... and start worrying about you.

Sam, if he wants to change details on his bike to suit preference, more power to him. I did the same thing with my Tuono... some mods were performance oriented (suspension, brakes and mapping) and others were "because I could" (paint, levers, etc).

The bottom line is, it's a hobby... don't piss on his thread because he has a little passion for customization.

Dane, how's the repair fund going?

The repairs are actually almost done. My headlight should be in today via FedEx, my uppercowl is all thats left, but thats re-usable until I get all new fairings. So... I will probably be on the road tomorrow if I can get all the dirt out from between my wheel and tire.. lol I am trying to sell my H&K USP Compact .45 for $550 so that I can fund my fairings. I really cannot decide which scheme I want to do. I REALLY want the CF Panels, but cant imagine laying it down again with those on. So I think I am going to do a custom Red Konica Minolta scheme from CBRFairings.com, (No decals, all gold get switched to black, and so on.)

Just wrap the fairings in 3M Di-Noc carbon fiber vinyl wrap. This guy did a gixxer. It will still cost you a couple hundy though.

Well, if I went Carbon Fiber, I wanted to probably throw the Graffiti Decals on it, then Paint over everything White, then take the decals off, and hit it with a clear coat. Then I would have a white bike again, with a CF Graffiti Scheme for Contrast. But, I dont want to spend that much time/money on fairings for a street/track bike. If it was a show bike/trailer queen, and it never got ridden, then yes.

Hey Dane,

DON'T SELL THE 45 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

( you'll need it for the zombies... but that's a topic for another thread )

As for the dirt/rim, you can try letting all the air out of the tire and see if that gives you enough flexibility... if not you may need to break the bead, which *can* be done by hand, but is MUCH easier on a tire changing machine.

There are a number of guys around the area that have them, most would probably do it for free/near free (read: six pack).

As far as letting the air out of the tires.. Im an idiot. lol. I will give that a try.

That would be a cool idea. The point though of the wrap is that you can cover up scratches and more with the it. Provided the plastic is structurally sound I suppose. No need for new fairings or paint.
