Well, you may remeber a few months back I had the bike painted with the old Yamaha design, but there were too many flaws and it needed re-done. So I just dedided to go back black like it was originally. I mean, thats why I bought the midnight in the first place cause I loved the color soo much. But anyways, the paint turned out flawless!! Its soo smooth now. I took a few pics as you can see here, but this old digi cam Im using doesnt do the paint justice. Up close it as smooth and clean as it can get! I also had the backrest powdercoated gloss black, and Ive got a pair of tall risers and stright bar that Im dropping off tomorrow to have powdercoated black also. I cant wait to get it all together and ride again! Ill post up some new pics when everythings finished.

My luggage rack is out to be powder coated right now, should get it Tomorrow actually.


It used to be a backrest but with the new Rumble seat I will only put this on to carry a bag with a passenger.


It still had to be black!

Looks good. If you can figure out a way to get a stock gas cap black, it would be awesome. That is the one thing I wish was different on my bike from a paint issue.

I was thinking the other day that I am going to pick up the stick on black gas cap covers that are used on the sport bikes-i think my r6 has the exact same gas cap as the warrior, but im not positive yet. My r6 has a carbon fiber lookin cap cover!

Yeah, if anyone has some info on cap covers or what not, I am interested. That would be pretty sweet.


My luggage rack should be getting coated right about now.

I just ordered a set of Pro-Bolts black bolts for the stock gas cap. While I was looking those up I found these. These are made for the R6 and R1 - so one might assume they fit the Warrior too... The base and the cap come seperate and bothcome in eitherSilver, Black, Blue, & Red. The base retails for $66.95 and the cap for $39.95.
