Hopefully AT&T will let the links through.

For those that were wondering in a previous post if the '02 rims could be polished, here are a couple photo's of the rims on my yellow '02 all polished up <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>.





As far as my '02 goes they are painted and polished up rather nicely.

I used "Aircraft Striper" that I got at pepboys, the stuff is really nasty and with in seconds you can see it working and the 1st photo it had set for about 6 minutes, however long it took me to coat, it get my camera and take a pic.

Hope this helps!!! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

It's days like this I wish I still did drugs!

Thanks.

I just took the stickers off.

A heat gun or blow dryer and some "goof off" do the trick real good.

So far I like the look of a solid color bike, might change my mind later and look at something www.tapeworks.com offers, but for now, solid is in for me.

WOW!

Just in case you missed it the first time... WOW!

That is way too nice (my stickers are all removed as well, but yours looks NICE!)! If I didn't know that I'd jack it all up all to hell and back, I'd try to polish my rims as well...

Ride safe

FYI, I put my 02 6r (yellow, just like yours) on my swingarm stand where yours is, and the bike moved forward so that the paddles were now on a much narrower part of the swingarm, and the bike fell off on the left side and the stand paddles, gouged into my swingarm. If you have the paddle type stand like this one, You should ALWAYS position the paddles on the OTHER side of the welded bosses for swingarm spools. The recommended position is directly over the weld behind the welded bosses. Rims look great
