Black is faster, unless it is red, or sometimes yellow, maybe orange, never blue though.

Where did you get this done?

I can't wait to see it in person.

How easy is it to change to something else?

Costs?

In my garage, easiest stuff in the world to work with, and you can remove it if you don't like it.

Cost? under $20

Can you put it on the bike in cold temps or does it need to be above 50?

I have a small heater in the garage, it was prolly around 50.

The important part is your surface must be clean. I did not remove my tank badge, I was going to coat it with vaseline so I could easily remove it but I found some aloe vera gel (don't ask) and coated the badge with that. funny thing is I still had to wrok to get it off of the badge, but it came out perfect.

Bike looks great Bill. The added stripe really makes it . Are the stripes plasti dip as well or decals? Went into Lowe's and picked up a spray can of the plasti dip. I'm going to use it on my bicycle just so I can get a feel of the durability of this stuff.

Stripes are vinyl.
