Got bumped by a cager and dropped my bike, left side of the tank was dent, got his insurance covered for new one but I decided to get it fix and repaint ($1000 for dent fixed and repaint at a local shop compared to replacing a brand new OEM tank for $2000 ).
Always loved the 1200R shiny black so I decided to have it painted in gloss black, also some other goodies

Just curious, is OP interested in our thoughts on solutions?

I wave to everyone on two wheels (unless it's a car).

My bike is a M796, so there are R&L "tank" panels wrapped individually as well as the flyscreen and seat cowl. Probably a little harder to wrap the one piece tanks like on the 821, but maybe not for a pro. I've done a few smaller bits in 3M carbon look vinyl after watching youtube, and it's not as easy as it looks!

Here's a pic of a cool wrap I'd like to have done someday- they did it in two colors of silver/black chrome, w/red pinstripes to conceal the seams.

Black and red frame is no go on my opinion. With black frame and full black out is cool.....! White and red frame matches much better

That opinion is wrong

Black on red from a graphic design point of view is one of the most dominant duo-tones, it's sporty and very dynamic something which suits the monster , also, monster 695, monster 796, Diavel Carbon Red and Diavel 1260 S would also like to have a word

OP, stellar looking bike dude, my only "objection" is the red hoses (as it gets too "busy") and the red oil cooler shroud.

Another amazing looking duo-tone is the white on red (S4RS/M796) one, there's a dude that did that on his M1200S (alongside white wheels), you can find pictures on google of it
Bub and cjkickz like this.
