    Paint job

    Ok my 04 RSV is Fluro Red and Silver. Both side panels have some chips scrapes nothing major just annoying. I can get them resprayed in the matching silver in a few weeks and its going to cost a fair bit. Now here is the question I can get them done black for fook all by the painter as he owes me one. Now should I stay with the standard or go black? Both jobs will be top notch too. What do you think?

    There is nothing stealth about a Tornado.....have you heard the noisy buggers? And they are easy to spot with the trail of black smoke pouring out of the back lol

    Pmsl!!!! There's some truth to what Slackey said but is gloss not matt and in truth its not the RAF stuff its left over from another job lol. So what do you think? Trust me when I say the bike owes me alot less than you might think so do I just have fun with it and get a custom design or get all serious with making it standard. Either way it will still look good and be worth more than I paid, I'm just not sure if I should change it. It's not like it's a rare bike that I'm likely to ruin. I suppose I could do it and if it looks crap I can get it resprayed in winter back to the standard colours.

    I didn't mean stealth as in stealth just black in colour...agreed tornado's are noisy fu@kers . Although the old bac lightning and f104 star fighter give it a good run for the money

    Showing my age now and the fact dad used to drag us to loads of air shows

    Well said mate, its in next week for paint ( black ) and then its graphics time. I was going to see if I could get away with Edwards copy ie Alice and IP decals hmm not sure. Maybe just plane black with standard decals would look fine. So its going to be Fluro Red and Black.
