Leave it with the black rims and leave the fairing black as well. Looks good and original..... maybe polished rims.... unfortunately, my photochop skills are nill.

The only way it'll look good with yelow rims is if you changed it up to a naked and added a few other yellow things. I doubt very much you would go that route. so leave it be.

thanks. polishing ain't happening and you're right - neither is the naked route. so i'll probably stick with the black for now

Until you suggested those yellow wheels I was quite impressed with your taste ;) But really, no, you will not do it. If I were you, I'd go silver, but get a black mudguard. And do something to tie the front to the back better- maybe paint the tail fairing blak from the "fold" down, or paint hte side panels silver. I said this before, but that bike rocks. One thing that'd look fantastic, but would be hard to do, would be to loose the SUZUKI on the tank and have a black Suzuki S instead... But I'm guessing the decals are under the clear like with the first gens, so that'd really call for a respray...

Another reason the coated frame is better than the K5/6 is that this bike wont have big silver patches on the frame in 25,000 miles ;)

ok. the wheels are not going yellow.

the black hugger is a suggestion already in the works.

i'm trying to decide on a way to bring the silver into the black fairings, and the black into the silver. it's a work in progress - very slow progress

Just leave it excactly the way it is. It looks like some secret govt bike project. I really like the black fairing.

Stranger - PhotoShop? If so, is it fairly easy to use? My wife I think has it on her laptop. Would also like to try a few color combos myself.

it is photoshop (i'm obivously not painting the wheels to just test the colors :D). but i'm not talented at the 'chopping to do it. there are plenty of people here who can do it. i'd suggest starting a thread for it. provide a base picture of what you wnat 'chopped
