I don't know, that orange really wakes it up! I like the titanium, but I'd keep the current paint.

Bleh I hate the orange, I want it gone badly!

I concur. I have to do the tank yet. So the mystery part showed up. I can't get a photo that really shows it well, looks awesome in person, going to keep it for sure. Once i get it 100% fit properly Thatll get painted as well

where'd the fairing come from?  i bought one of these some time ago, but it seems a bit narrow and low for the monster forks/triple clamp square sort of thing.

For shits and giggles I painted the original windscreen. I like it way better on the bike, gonna order one that isn't broken down the line. I also was curious what the bike would look like if I dropped it down to only 1 caliper. I much prefer to see the front weel, and it's one less system to deal with. Curious to see how it stops, but with the brembo setup, good pads, and imoved feel frpm the stain less lin i think i'll be fine. That's my biggest issue with newer bikes, too many things going on. I may try to simplify the wiring, just have a small bundle of wires going to the bars instead of all this crap. Perhaps I can I make a bezel for the gauge and put the kill switch, start button, ad a few other things on there down the line. Right now the whole thing just looks too messy for me.

I will paint the headlight today, then finish the sanding/ rubbing out next week on a few pieces. The fender didn't get enough love, have to work some more compound magic on it. After I ride enough to drain the tank I'll paint that too. I'm thinking to paint the underside first, let it sit a couple of days, then flip it over and paint the top. I should wind up with an acceptable paint job for now. The funny part is I think I'm going to repaint those belt covers anyway lol.

Be interesting to see when the tank is painted. I love that burnt orange colour but that black could pull it together nicely.

I like the new fairing too, (although I am a bit biased haha), but the look of the original windscreen looks mean.

Went back to the original fairing, painted. All I have left to paint is the tank, then I'll be done for a while.

I prefer the original fairing. The other fairing is nice but for such a light looking bike it added way to much visual weight.
Will be good to see the bike all painted.

Absolutely agree. That original one kicks ass.

The "problem" with the original fairing is, it's at the wrong angle. In it's original form it was more upright on a smaller headlight. Every time I see it I think of a dog with it's ears laid back. Not meant as a flame, it's just what I think of when I see it.
