After a ton of fucking around in photoshop - I have decided to pull back and simplify.

I am going to cover up that ugly aqua green showa tube with gloss black vinyl and get SHOWA cut in a metallic grey or matte black.
The zx10r logo will most likely be gloss black. Barely noticeable - retaining the stealth look I want.
Also losing the green rim stripes.

I wish there was something I could do to lose the aqua green fork tops at the triple.

You can vinyl wrap them easily. Even if you've never wrapped anything in your life you can do each cap in 2 pieces in 10 minutes. Top then sides.

Also those black Showa tubes are $$$.

Where did you get the different colour Graves logo for the exhaust? Do they offer them?

Sorry for the delayed answer. I saw them somewhere and contacted Graves - they just sent them out to me with another package that I had coming from them.
