New Paint for the R1200S

Postby BigRob » Tue Mar 14, 2017 12:03 pm

I bought my first Boxer this time last year and have never looked back. Already done the NC500 and been all over the UK only problem was the paint scheme bothered me. So winter project has been cosmetic and hopefully some performance mods.

during the winter i have changed all coils due to a misfire, changed fuel pressure and air inlets to HP2 versions and have invested in a set of Nigels performance HP2 headers. Cosmetically i have added a carbon Hugger, Carbon Bellypan, carbon diff cover, carbon mudguard and a carbon clock surround. Still got a trip to Hillside planned. Have a spare diff cover and front mudguard in carbon from China if anyone interested £100 Mudguard, £50 Diff Cover

Very nice! Who did you get to do the paint for you? I'm still toying with the idea of painting my R1200RS, but the company I used to know, Altamura in Hampshire , seems to have stopped trading.
Cheers,

Paul
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Looks great Rob. The blue checked pattern on the fairing sides which fade towards the rear - paint or decals?
