So I have been debating if I should wrap my R3, probably a Red, Gray and Black Digital Camo.

Has anyone else wrapped their bike? If so how much is recommended to get so I won't get less than I am supposed to...

Thank in Advance!

All I want is white sides bahaha I've seen a couple that I can't figure out if they're vinyl wrapped or plastic dipped

Just say no to plasti-dip. It looks and feels awful. Vinyl is the way to go.

Here is a chopped photo of a white R3. It has red wheels on it, I can only assume someone was trying to make it look like a 959 Panigale. This is what my GF uses to try out new vinyl schemes for me. :D

I don't know how I feel about the lower fairing not being black though. I think it might look weird.

MDF has some sick decal kits for the R3. Very retro Yamaha centric. One forum member did the Pumpkin Yellow Strobe kit, which is very similar to the current Yellow/Black/White color schemes for the R6/R1.

Here are pics of the two kits I know MDF has available for the R3.

Rather than going through the pain and time of a personal wrap, or shelling out for a professional job, i'd probably just cop these fairings. Somewhat similar to your design, and they're basically a blank canvas to add more color or stickers wherever you'd like

I think the white w red wheels looks the best. Monochromatic paint schemes are timeless and the wheels add just enough color. It looks like this pic has the "R3" with a grey or off white backing? very cool

Hi msdss, i took inspiration from your pic, & changed it slightly (since my rims already have red reflective tape), and ordered a custom fairing. Shall see how it goes :D

That yellow and black scheme just caused me to have a bike-gasm. Similar to a cargasm, but caused by a bike. :D

Update from the seller, all's looking good, except they got the wrong colour for the mudguard, center portion of the fuel tank and the two panels on the left and right of the dashboard (they're supposed to be black) haha!
