Hated the swing arm look before, slapped some vinyl on it, love the swing arm look now.

Wow........ that came out nice.

I bet if you put a black rim strip from Tapeworks on the rim..... it would look even better.

Okay this is a whole bike shot. I might try to paint it later on but the vinyl was cheap, took like 5mins to put on and if it gets messed up I have plenty to replace it with.

Deff helps take some edge off that big ole rectangle. I may do that to mine, but my swingarm is black so maybe I'll go with body color-matched? Great idea and easy, simple mod that is effective.

looks sweet. how stable is it? lots of nasty stuff down that close to the road/rubber/brakes. do you think it will peel off?

think i might powdercoat my swingarm soon.

Well I did it post chain cleaning, bike wash and chain waxing this morning. However I was breaking in my new rear Z6 with a 220+ mile road trip today where speeds topped out at about 115 and did most highway miles at 70 to 80. So tomorrow I'll have to take a look at it and see if still there, since I got home after dark I didn't really look or thought that It might not be still stuck on.
