My personal feeling is that if you are going to flame a vehicle, it needs to flow.



I'm not knocking the flames on your bike, but IMHO the decals look just like that - decals.



The colors are so seperated that there is no flow.



Take a minute and really look at a flame, you'll know what I am getting at. However, maybe that wasn't the look you were going for. If not, cool.



In my mind, if you are going to flame, you gotta have white and you gotta have yellow or it just doesn't work.



If you don't agree, please accept this for what it is, one guys oppinion. Nothing more.

yes it is a Tapeworks product (flames #11), quality is good, installation takes time, and patience, and a good eye.

My best friend has a '00 ZX-12R that we did too, last year.



I didn't so much go with the the "flow" idea....but just a few flames jumping out of the random orifice.

The cut-out in the fairing breaks up the one big flame...but it actually was connected.

I like it, although you wont be able to say "but officer it was someone else speeding with purple flames". it is unique. If you have any extra flames I was wondering if you thought about adding some purple to the front wheel cover i think it would look good, but that is just me.

yes, i do have a few licks left over, and the front fender is one of my targeted areas....

Glad all you guys like it.

Well, off to the breakfast ride to show it off in person....

Of course I should have noted in all fairness that it is really hard to get the true effect from a picture. I've seen pictures of flames and then seen the actual car, and the difference was night and day seeing it in person....



There is also a red 12 owner here that has similar flames in a very, very subtle shade of red that you can hardly see in the picture, but several guys that have seen it in person said it looks fantastic...
