I have a 03 Liquid Silver R6 on order, but I absolutly hate the flat black look of the mid fairing. Do you all think that having the mid fairings and tire hugger painted the same red as the 01/02 R6's would look good?? I would photshop it for you all but I don't know how to use photoshop nor do I have it, so...you'll have to use your imagination unless someone wants to take the time to do it real quick.

Oh man, please don't do that... That's got to be just horrible. :)

There has got to be a better color than that?? If anything just get the paint code of the silver and paint it... Of course silver is a hard color to match.

I'm not the most creative person in the world by any stretch of the imagination, but I don't think that would look too hot personally....

If you like the scheme of the R1 better then buy an R1. I think the black looks dam fine, it will grow on you when its in front of you at the dealership.

Ok, so I'm getting the general idea that the red won't look that good. Anyone got any other suggestions other than leaving it alone?? I personnally think it needs a little bit more color in it other than all that black and silver, plus all my gear is red/white to match the 01. Suggestions..anyone??

If you're looking for the clean look. You could always purchase the blue one and have all the blue painted red. Those who know the R6 doesn't come in red would be impressed. However, you could also try a unique look.... and go custom. Take out a peice of paper and start sketching away. :D

If you really need to paint it, why not paint it silver like the rest of the bike?
Ditto. Paint it all Silver like the rest. That would look so clean and SWEEEEEEET!!!
