The more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to agree. A very narrow (1/8") stripe dividing the color blocks would be a nice effect.

Can you buy colored pin stripes that you apply on top of paint (before the clear)? The plastic tape I'm currently using to achieve my edges is intended for painting pinstripes. But actually painting the accent stripe isnt really an option given my skill level: masking off a 1/8" strip would be a nightmare and the edges would never come out parallel. If there is something I can lay down on top, that would be great.

Rustoleum "Stops Rust" enamel. Colors are sunrise red, gloss black, and gloss white. 3 coats 5 minutes apart seems to get good coverage over primer.

I'm taking the role as the resident vinyl expert. Don't worry about paint-stripes, it's not a classic car. I've seen dozens of track bikes with clear coat over pinstripe tape, it's done all the time, especially on fiberglass that doesn't expand/contract or get as hot as metal (Our bikes come stock with graphic under clear-coat). If worried, you can just stripe OVER the clear no fuss. Just make sure to get good quality 3M stuff. Maybe experiment on the under-side of the bike to see which works better? http://3mcollision.com/products/deco...tape_width=907

Officially licensed by NASCARRRRRRR, so you know the vinyl won't come off your bike due to boredom.

Default nose

cool. putting the stripes on after clearing sounds easy, and will let me finish up the rest of the project before turning to that.

My real question at this point has to do with the design of the nose. I'm concerned that the all-red nose in the mock up might be a little boring. One option that I liked was an 848/1098 style white or black panel that traces imaginary headlight lines. This might be a little bit too much Duc influence, though, being as i've already stolen nicky hayden's paint scheme.

Here's a mock of the original all-red, two 848-esque styles, and the standard number plate style. Thoughts?

I think 3 starting from the left looks the best if you did a black intake and than 2 with the black, followed by 1 and 4.

Slapped these together in 5 minutes. The one with stripes now looks way too much like a ducati and both the noses are too middle-of-the-road, so NEVERMIND! I choose your second one!
