I cut up some graphics I had lying in the garage. They were bluebut the tank is so big it dwarfed them and they didn't look right. Kind of like a fly on a hippo's butt.

The guard was made by my buddy here at work. I may have to go back to using header wrap since the tank and right side petcock are so close to the header.

I am in the process of redoing my 00 426 had the frame powder coated candy apple blue with candy apple blue wheels I also had the value cover, clutch cover and ignition cover powder coated the same color as the frame and I was thinking about going all white plastics with hot wheels graphics and seat cover. The bike should look pretty sick. I think the blue wheels and some nice graphics will make that bike look awesome.

Where are you located in texas I am always looking for new people to go riding with. I live in the D/FW area. :)

I live in The Colony. We need to get together and ride. I am planning a trip to Gilmer for the weekend and my son and I ride Rocky Ridge at least once a month. I am also due for a trip to Muenster. Shoot me a pm next time you ride and I will do the same, maybe we can ride then. :)

Very nice.

I bought an IMS tank, but nobody makes shrouds for the 250 in white, so I was stuck with black. I went with the XGX US flag graphics.

I really wanted white.

I do like the white plastics. I have wanting to powder coat the frame but have heard horror stories about not getting the oil res. clean How would one get all of the medis/sand out after blasting?

Don't let it get IN.

Paint shops have tapered rubber plugs that they insert into any threaded opening that is not intended to be painted/coated. They can also be used during the cleaning process, but it might be best to use regular screws to cap everything off and use a chemical stripper.
