Did your blue bike come with black rims stock?

In Australia both blue and white models are equipped with black rims.

Decal works are doing the full bike decals front to back, Just got the numbers and radiator louver decals still finalizing some details for the radiator shroud decals they will be on soon.

Thats where I got my last set from and I just got a quote from him the other day on a new set... $960 for a set of Black Excel rims with Black talon hubs and Black powder coated spokes... Probably going to go ahead and get them so I can put them on as soon as I get a new bike!

I suppose the radiator shroud graphics will be two different pieces (a top and a bottom) wont they?

I wonder how the graphics are going to stick to the the lower rad shrouds?

Thats what I'm getting at! If they would just come with the upper sticker or if the bottom half is seperate or not even a bottom.

I believe the same kind of plastic the rad shroud is made of it is the same plastic as the black plastic that is at the top (next to the seat) on the side plates, if you follow me.

His graphics on the side panels appear to be sticking to the black plastic like the rad shroud.

So my answer would be yes that the graphics will probably be two seperate pieces from decal works and yes they will be able to adhere to the rad shrouds.

Having a look at the new 450's, the stickers for the new style shrouds will be in three pieces, rather than just two, as there is also the cover for the top left and right of the tank which moulds into the top left and right of the radiator shroud. I am putting stickers on mine before riding it. Have you seen the prices on genuine replacement shrouds. WOW. Will be interesting to see how aftermarket companies make their copies.

Yeah, the plastics are expensive right now- around $450 for the air box part of the shrouds, front & rear fender and side panels. I hope the price comes down as the production increases.

i dont intend to cover any of the black gripper material. i think the graphics will stay fresher looking if you avoid putting stickers on these high wear areas. there wont be any advantage to having it if it's covered by graphics.
