Speed Freak,
Could you please share where you sourced the EBC pads from. I would like to put them on my 2012 Ninja 650.

Safe rides
Hi Frank,

This has been sourced from a dealer in BKK. PM me for more details

My fellow Bhpians,

its been a year and a half with this mean machine, i have now clocked 11.5kms and i should say my riding has reduced drastically due to work.

however i still found time to pamper my kwacker, she now has a new set of tyres, also she has a full carbon wrap, i think she is probably one of the few or probably the first full carbon fiber wrapped 650r in the world, thank you seventh gear customs for a fantastic job.

adding some pictures to spice things up.

Looks wicked SpeedFreak. Reminds me of street hawk

Mind sharing how much the wrap job costs?

SpeedFreak that's really a wicked looking bike man! So much meaner (and sleeker) than the normal green colored one.

Love your wheels as well!

Did you get any wrinkles/creases in the wrap on the corners and edges? I have seen a few "wrapped" bikes, and that is the one aspect that puts me off.

Hi n_aditya - Thanks a ton, i am yet to get the damages for the wrap ;-) shall let you know once i have it.

Hey ebonho,

Thanks buddy, the wrap is a very tough job especially carbon fiber since its a lot thicker than your regular matt black etc vinyls. There are a few places which does have creases but the ninja body has lots of curves and its almost impossible to have a smooth crease free install. The tank alone took a day and had to be done thrice.

Speed freak, the Bike is looking good with the wrap. Just curious as to how all the curvatures were done. Did they use the heat gun? I had my Skoda VRS bits and pieces like the front grill and the mirrors and some parts of the spoilers done from 3M at Andheri and it was not an easy job. As you have rightly pointed out the 3m carbon fibre wrap is thicker and not easy to lay. Did they get the tank out and wrap it or was it all done in place.
Which screen do you have? Is this the original with a film on it or is it an after market add on? Is it possible to install a film on the original?

Knowing what I spent on the 3M carbon wrap for my Skoda RS , you must have spent a packet and this is a pretty labour intensive job

safe rides!

Hi Frank,

They did use a heat gun for the curvatures, the entire body work was dismantled for the job. The screen is a Zero Gravity- Stock replacement smoke screen, you can install a film on the stock one too, however the use of a heat gun could be a problem.
