Default What color Watsens???

Just traded in my '07 Graphite Daytona, bought a Sulphur Yellow one and miss the Watsens like crazy already. Only problem is that since the color is so limited, I don't know that he will make that color and have yet to receive a response from him at this point.

I wanna know what you think in terms of whether or not the gloss black will work with the bike or will stand out too much and be an eye sore...

Thanks in advance for your opinions and help!!!

Personally I'd go with the Speed Triple LED blinkers. Off-color Watsens look like ass, the whole point is to blend in to the bodywork.

Just wait for them to make the Sulfer Yellow. In 08 I got the Jet Black for my Phantom Black thinking they would never make PB but they did. The JB matched well for my bike anyway but mismatching Watsens looks terrible.

If you can't get color matched, then you could always get the speed triple led blinkers or if you dead set on Watsens then perhaps the matte black tweaked to look like caron fibre.

Talked to him yesterday. He wants to do a true color match and would need an actual piece from the bike in order to do them. I'm going to check with my local dealership to see if there's anything there that has the sulphur yellow color that I could send to Watsen.

I looked at the speed triple LED's. I like them, but are they plug and play with the daytona? Would they fit flush? Has anyone else tried this tactic???

Thanks for the input. I think I'll wait until myself or someone else can get Watsen an actual piece with the factory color on it. Until then, I may be inclined to do the speed triple lights.
