I Ride: 2016 959
Wrapped my 959

Hey all, as part of my winter project I installed a MRA racing windscreen, Dieci83 radiator guard and wrapped the tail, nose and side fairings. For the lower belly pan area I ordered a cheap set of race fairings and painted them the same color as the vinyl since I was afraid the heat from the exhaust would bubble the vinyl.

Before next track season I'm planning on doing a coolant flush and I'm debating if I want to do rear sets this year or wait until next winter. I also have the GP shift conversion on my to do list.

Let me know what you guys think.

BTW sorry for the crappy picture quality, posting pics on here sucks.

Honest? Ok, it has no flow. Not feeling the way the grey breaks up the red. Maybe white would've been a better choice. But......this is JMO

I feel the same way Moondognyc feels - the red is just separated by lack of color. Maybe its the pic quality, but I doubt it. Let's see the black and white pic in color...

Looks good but needs a little more color to break up the grey. Maybe some red pin striping at the top and bottom of the grey area to break it up.

Thanks for your feedback guys. I'm not sure if it comes through in those pics that the lower part of the tail is wrapped grey to extend the side stripe. I was a little hesitant on doing that red in the middle as well.

Here is another pic of the side, hopefully this comes through a little better.

Ok, one more from me, then I'm guaranteed no Christmas card from you...lol
Seriously, from that angle it's not terrible...buuuuuut, here's what would look better (only IMO!!!).
The lower stripe is the mistake. The middle stripe works great. It would look even better if it were a carbon fiber stripe to match the flow of the from fender, but the lower is a no go. That's where the flow is killed.

Hey man, no need to feel bad. I was hesitant on the red middle stripe as well which is why I wanted peoples honest opinion. Luckily I can easily make the bottom section red.
