Painted my F matte white. A friend of mine is doing his black. I'm really liking the look of it. Both bikes painted with plasti dip. I'm definitely going to be ordering the overseas white panels once this starts to peel on me. I know the tank is a separate piece.

We both took every single panel off for painting. Just masked around the tank so we didn't have to remove it.

What do you guys think?

looks great..what paint did you use?
Rustoleum flexi dip on both bikes. Their equivalent to plasti dip. I chose that instead of plasti dip only because I didn't have to find someone to unlock the security cage. Rustoleum isn't locked for some reason.

I think that is a great use of plasti dip type of painting. they look good Ven0m0uS. nice. I toyed with the idea of doing the same to mine, but I am really digging the read white and blue, so much so I now have a red white and blue helmet, lol.... I digress... my girlfriend and I like the paint, nice job.

Just want to update, paint is still holding well. I haven't had any peeling. I haven't washed the bike though. I always keep it covered so I don't have a need to wash it. In other words, I can't say how it takes to water as I don't ride in the rain. I'm really hoping to be able to order the white plastics from Canada. The dealers that I have contacted don't have a price for the parts yet.

should be fine. I have seen you tube vids of people pressure washing cars that have been plasti-dipped. hoe it all turns out for you. a nice white is sharp. I like the white Kawi uses on the ninja 650. it is sharp.

Both bikes look good. I would like to see it in person so that I can have a better idea of what the finish is like in real life, but it seems to go well from the pictures that you have posted here.

Why don't you wrap it in white vinyl?
Spray was easier to do, and cheaper. I'm not leaving it on permanently. I just wanted to see how it looks in white. I ended up liking how it looks so I'm definitely ordering the white plastics from Canada. Including the tank. Once they're available.

Must be a case of "the grass is greener" because my wife's 300f is white (we're in Canada) and we both liked the red more.

BTW, the white is actually what I would call pearl, it has a metal flake in it to make it sparkle.
