well, Biker6 and I took the exchanging wheels post and ran with it. Here are the results. IMO - both bikes look great after (not that they didn't look good before :lao of course)

Before:



After:

I'd have to agree with you there ..... the silver rims do look better on the Silver FZ6 & Black on the Blue one.

+1 I'm not a fan of the black wheels, but I must admit, they should have been put on the blue bike. Between the two, they look much better there.

I agree also. Yamaha missed it on this one. And to give credit where it's due...WTVa was the first to put black wheels on a blue bike. Nice call Wai!

(and another Richmonder, I might add)

Another thing I think they got wrong was changing the color of the silver....why not give us red or black if they wanted to offer a diff color?

I'm torn. I think the silver wheels make the silver fiz look "classier" maybe. but the black ones make it look sportier. I like the silver though. I think I'll have to do it.

Anyone with a slower blue in atlanta?? :)

the way I see it: the silver rims on the silver bike helps to bring out the silver in the bike...and the black rims on the blue bike helps to accentuate the silver frame and engine

just wait til I put the lazer quad tips on :banana

I agree parttime. the more I look at it the more I want to do it. Once I white out the lights and get my exhaust (next week) I'll post some pics. In a perfect world someone will swap with me this weekend.

Thanks Mike, I am with you think they should of left silver alone and brought a new color over to this side of the pond too. Yeah I am happy with the black rims on the blue bike since I have to much blue on mine it helps to break things up a little :)
For the newer folks here is a link to the old thread and pics..

Not trying to be too different but I prefer silver on both bikes. I has a cleaner look to it. I am sure the black don't show up the grease specks as much as the silver. So I guess that would be a plus. Maybe.

That is why we have choices. There is no perfect color to appease everyone. Everyone has their own taste. I prefer silver. The next guy likes black it's all good. As long as everyone can all agree on that the Silver FZ6 is the faster of the two colors, you can paint the rims orange for all I care. :eek:nfloor :headbang :devil :nutkick :smokin
