Opinion - Yellow or white side pannels

Recommended Posts

Burned, the only problem is I'll soon have a light on the front of my DRZ. Here's the one I was thinking about:

Should I go for an all white headlight rather than the black one pictured?

Ok, so I'll add on to the above question, what DRZ rear end would look best with this (or a white) headlight and what rear end would look best with a white numberplate?

I have white Matt, and it sucks if you want it to stay nice looking. One hard bail in the dirt and now the side panels are perma-dirty. It looks good in a hardcore dirtbike sort of way, but disgusting as a street rider. The whites are now my dirt only plastics. :)

I'm not really too worried about keeping the white clean. I have the white now, I keep it looking great by shaving out the scratches with a very sharp knife, then sanding the entire thing with fine grit sandpaper (vibrating sander), then give it a shine with WD-40. If the plastic is just looking dingy, WD-40 works great as a cleaner, makes it look new again.

I'm buying all new plastic though, as I just purchased a yellow E tank, and since I need mostly all new plastic as I have Blue now, I'll be replacing it all, even the white.

All I'm after with this post is which one you guys think looks better.

Thanks,

Matt

You have a secret Honda fetish :)

Red or orange is better than white during hunting season maybe, do i win? :D

Don't laugh but we had a hunter here a few years ago who shot a tan Ford Bronco coming to-wards him on a woods road and it had its headlights on.

I still say all yellow.

The White Side-Panels are way sano looking... also the yellow color screams-out "Dirt Bike! Dirt Bike! You need to give me a ticket!" when riding an "S" on the street (IMO).

The clean whiteness is soo cool that they even offer an iMAC/iPod -inspired white plastics kit for Honda CR's to make 'em look ultra-cool.

Besides when you can ride fast and still keep'em clean and relatively scratch-free people tend to give you that look of "Whoa...!"

White with Black backgrounds applied. :)

I say white cause yellow would look ugly with my blue bike. Unlike DR billz, I am not color blind and I don't want an my bike to look like it belongs to the Shriners.

I prefer the all-yellow look. Of course, that's how my bike came...so I like it for now. May go all black some day. :)
