New tail section.

Always liked the red RC's with a black tail. What you guys think?

I like it! I was going to do the same thing a few months ago but the tail I picked up was a little too dinged.

To each his own. The 03 scheme is my least favorite. Too discombobulated. And the highest volume. I'd take your 02 in original colors by far, nice combo. Still, as long as you like it that is what counts.

An s1000 would never hurt either or an R1M.

Nice, but looks pretty darn close to standard 03.

Discombobulated. What the...?
I have to admit, I sort of agree about the graphics of the 03. To me, the wing is too small. I really prefer the bigger wing, fits the bike's girth better. imo.

Of course no bias towards my SP1 graphics.

^^^ makes a good point. I woulda probably left the silver completely off the tail, like this fine example...

1988 Yamaha Radian...wheelied on it
1990 Yamaha FZR...friend totaled it
1997 Honda Shadow...wife stole it
1998 Yamaha YZF...noob tree'd it
