Ceramic Coating, finally

Well, the coating is done and I'm just waiting for the 520 conversion parts and rotors. I'm really liking my 919 more and more.

Looks great Steve! Does the header and the slip-ons have the same finish? In the photo the header looks to have a little shine to it.
I like it!!

The header and Y-pipe are both in something Performance Coatings calls gray ice, and the slip-ons are a dull black that matches the other parts pretty darn good. I'm really happy with the results.

Hey guys, want a little laugh, look closely at the seat. The smaller section that separates the upper and lower seat sections is actually Ostrich. I didn't ask for it, they just had a piece laying around that was the right size and asked me it I wanted to use it.

When you say "ceramic coating", do you mean something like Jet Hot Coat on the exhaust?

The link below is the stuff and the folks who did it for me. The owner is a motorcycle guy and even instructs for one of the local trackday companies. They have done stuff for me on 4 bikes and 3 cars (if memory holds). I think it is pretty much the same stuff....

Yeah, that entire bike is an overall fantastic look. It's great when you can figure out a distinctive look that sets you apart from the pack.

What kind of seat is that or where did you get it covered?

It is a weird story. It is just a cover, but it is the guys shop where Rich (Rich's seats) started. They do great work, but it was way more expensive because he was copying the design on my wife's 599 (silly, I know, but they look cool sitting together). My wife's seat is a Sargent (but I didn't want to wait 5-6 weeks with shipping, because I ride through the winter).
