Gloss for the tank (wallaroos piccy is just sublime) and satin for all the fiddly bits

But, don't ask me how to combine the two

Gotta go with the gloss. Can't have a beautiful shiny bike with some dull parts on it. The only way I would go matte carbon is if the whole bike was Matte Black. Like the 848 Evo Stealth

Im thinking glossy/wet I'm also thinking they should have put the traditional gold look wheels on as well.

argubly though the color comment has merit, if the 13's have an all black version in the line up then the matte carbon would be perfect!

Other than that glossy/wet all the way.

I went looking for some things that I wanted to use in the design for my bike and I found this.

Any advice how to make the Termignoni heatshield satin-look ?
Just grind it with fine sandpaper ?

You can do this but it ll be matte finish not satin.

Only way to obtain a real satin finish is to put satin finish on it (by a professional painter)

Here is the example with glossy BST and a DP shock cover

Gloss = tacky and crass, like a gold Rolex.

Satin = classy and sober, period.

Yes, PLAYED OUT.
I was wondering why I was really not in a rush to spend money on any CF parts. I've done it with so many other bikes. For me it was never about weight savings, just bling and now everyone does it so why bother. So many other ways to spend money that you will never get a return on.

Satin.

Perversely the shiney gloss CF looks just like the fake stick-on CF that adorns super mini's owned by boy/girl racers the world over and is therefore uncool. Satin is classy and understated and is not bling at all. Just my opinion, take it or leave it.
