Just curious what you guys think my black ZZR would look like with the wheels powdercoated black. Do you think the black or stock silver color would look best? I think I might have them coated this winter, but about half the people I ask think it would look better to just keep the silver wheels. What do you guys think?

It's all a matter of what you like, afterall it is your bike but I think that your bike would look good with black spokes and leaving the outer portion silver like I did with mine.

It is definitely about what I want to do with my bike. I'm just not sure which I like better. I have thought about the two tone look, but leaving the spokes silver, and have the outer rim black. I have been thinking about other colors, but I don't really know what would look good.

I am going to have to disagree with the above posts. I like the silver on the black better, but that's just me. Black wheels will however cover up dirt, brake dust, grease, etc better than the silver. I'm not into the "stealth" look. I like some contrast on bikes...something to break it up,looks like a big blob of one color without it. It's your bike, do what you think looks good! Peace bro! :D

Black it out man, stealthy bikes go by more un-noticed. Plus it's got the bad-ass quality that more bikes should have. I would love to trade my silver plastics for black ones, or have it painted black. Black on these bike looks bitchin!

[:Agree]

"the bad-ass quality" sums it up nicely IMO.

Chrome costs way more, and takes too long to get back on the bike, but I have thought about it. I'll probably get the black powdercoat. I was just curious how some others felt about it. Hey Trucca, how do you like that Devil pipe. I've been looking at those. How's the sound?

Yeah, that pipe sounds real nice. The Muzzy on your buddy's 6R sounded good too, but those bastards cost too much. There are some nice bike pics in that album. YOUR pics are a different matter entirely. Thanks for the help.

Fish1, dont mean to steal your thread. i am lookng for black fairings for my 01 zx6r, i.e., i understand the 07 zzrs come in black, right? do oyu know if they are available as spares and what do you think they would cost? i have blue fairings on mine (have scratches on them since i laid it down) and i want to turn them black, i am trying to price the fairings, so that i can decide if i want to buy new fairings or just get the old ones painted.!

Depending on how bad the scratches are, you would be way cheaper to just have yours painted. If you need new plastics, then it would probably still be cheaper to buy aftermarket like Sharkskinz and have them painted. I don't know for sure, factory fairings may be cheaper than I think. You might also look at Bike Bandit.com for fairing prices.
