Poll: Red or Black Barkbusters

Basically, I'm torn and would like some input from you guys. Right now my plastics are all black, and my trellis frame is red:

Current color scheme:


Red Barkbusters (thanks to DBD34):


Black Brarkbusters (thanks to MackDaddy):

I think if you exploit the red "Ducati" style you should go red or carbon.

i'd go for red with the black trim cause the white trim isn't verry nice

The red does not match in my opinion -- so black for me!

I really like the blacked out plastics on your bike...I thought of doing that but with leaving the trellis black also. Did you paint them or buy new ones? Also about pealing the Kawasaki Versys stickers off...how hard is it and does it leave a sticky residue? Thanks jim

...and go with the black ones...

Go with the black and get rid of the fugly Barkbusters emblem. What is it with handguard manufacturers? You have a really nice bike. Why in the world would you want Barkbuster emblazoned all over it? It's not a transit bus with gawdy advertising pasted on the outside.

I painted the plastics with Krylon Fusion- Satin Black. The Trellis with Rustolium Sunrise Red.

The stickers weren't too bad to remove. Once you have em off, just use some Goo-gone to remove the sticky stuff.

The old motocrosser trick with stickers is to use a blow drier or a heat gun to heat and peel stickers of clean no residue.

P.S. Go Black
