So here i go uploading pictures of my 02 R6 that i have had for about 4 years now, actually just finished painting it flat black due to the sun fading my red paint.

Thanks i think so too, i want to finish it off with some pinstriping and spikes, make it look old school.

I think the flat black turned out pretty good for a rattle can on my 4' x 6' back padio, haha.

Looks awesome! Is the yamaha on the gas tank a decal that you just sprayed over without removing? if so you should look in to removing it and keeping the red yamaha that it should leave. make sense? it was worded better in my head somehow

There was a problem with the tank. It is a metal take and the rest of the bike is plastic. so on the metal tank they put the decals on the paint and clear coated it. only thing on the bike with a clear coat. it would have taken a lot of work to remove the clear/decals on the tank. i am looking into pinstriping the bike and i will outline the yamaha and use the other lines in a pinstriping design. hope that makes sense. the tank is the only part i dont like.

I like it, these are one of my favorite 600's. I'm painting my bike flat black... well the cans say flat black but looks more semi black. Any pics of the new muffler on it?

I painted mine with this paint...

Its used for vehicle exterior plastics like mirrors and trim. Its pretty durable but about 13 bucks a can. Happy painting
