I am currently beginning my repainting project for my 500R, since I disliked the purple/grey color. I am trying out flat black with some clear coat to see if I like the look. I am in love with the honda 919 in flat black, so I figured I'd give this one a shot. Hopefully I can get done in the next week or two and get some pictures for everyone to see.

if you clear over flat black its not gonna be flat-even if you use low gloss jambing clear its still gonna shine-if you want real flat black your prolly gonna have to use single stage acrylic enamel with a flattening agent and no clear :wink:

I don't really want a TRUE flat black, it needs a little bit of gloss look. Plus some protection from the sun, so far in the drying stage I like the results, I'm already on coat 4 of clear coat, 2 or 3 more then I will begin buffing to a absolute finish. this if just the bottom fairing too, I have yet to begin work on the rest of the bike.
