Tank and battery covers back from powder coating! Still some decals to come but here's what it looks like so far. Pics don't capture it well but there's a brushed finish under the candy red that really pops when the sun hits it. I'll get some more shots later when the sun is out and the decals are complete.

Ill say, I wasn't a fan of the length of the seat at first but now I really like this. It turned out great!

Thanks for looking and the comments!

I just got the gold decals on today. There were a few tiny defects in the powder coating on the tank that I decided to hide with some randomly placed checks. Luckily the graphic was designed with the checks drifting so all I had to do was make a few spares to place over the defects. Saved having to strip and re-coat tank not knowing if that would even fix it. It seemed to be from porosity in weld lines that didn't pop until it hit the powder coating oven.

Got new shocks on today. And a pic of the tank in sun.

If you have RFY shocks what pressure do you like to run and on what bike?
