Default Custom Paint Color ???

Whats Up , I got a few question, needed input , opinions of everyone on the forums with F4i's Im taking my bike into opaint on Tuesday But......
Havent decided on a color
So. heres what i came up with so far

1- Metallic Yellow with Blue Pearl on top ,
2- Metallic White with Yellow Pearl on top
3- Black with Yellow Pearl on top

IF I do they yellow with Blue pearl the wheels are getting powdercoated blue to set off the pearl,
and If i do the yellow pearl the wheels are getting powdercoated yellow.
So any opinions would be helpful, ill post some current pics up today of the bike now ...!!!

IF any of you got custom paint on your F4i please post pix thanks ....

Of your options, I would go with the white and yellow. That's a combo you really never see, and I like white.

I think doing something crazy like a flat black, with dark metallic red would look pretty sweet too.

Maybe it's just me but if this was my bike, and I had to ride it, I would want what I like rather than what other people like. Have the shop make small samples of each and then make your decision... Don't ask people who like black when you like white.

My white w/ yellow flake F4i begs to differ

I can't really recommend what you should do. It's your bike, paint it the color YOU want.

I don't mean to hijack your thread...but I have been thinking about changing the color of my bike. I was wondering, for all the guys out there who have had their bikes painted. How expensive is it? I was thinking about it, and if you take all the painted body parts off the bike I cant imagine a body shop would charge all that much. I would probably just do one color and have the stock stickers put on. BTW where can I get the stock stickers?

Bikebandit.com > OEM parts > Body & Fenders. Scroll down and there will be a selection for "Stripes."

Price will vary. Expect it to be between $500 - $1,000. It will be more if your fairings have any damage and need to be repaired.

I, personally, have a friend who does paint, so it pretty much cost me only for the materials and a little for my friend. So I'm not a very reliable source.
