    Pearl white? If so I dunno about the reddish wheels..

    I think it might look good with the faring painted all the same color too...

    If you have the painter but a little bit of red pearl in the paint to match the wheels that'd look sweet.

    No, it would not be pink. It's be white but when the sun hit it a certain way it's have a little red tint to it. I guess sort of like a metal flake but it's not metal flake. When I used to work for a custom boat trailer builder we'd mix pearls sometimes. The trailer would usually be the color of the boats accent color and the pearl would be another color on the boat.

    Here is something I found real quick.

    I have a feeling the clutch lever will do the trick.

    I've painted with pearls many times(and I get them from the site you posted). If you mix red pearl with the white it will make it pink. And if you mix red pearl with the clearcoat and spray it over the white base it will look pink when the sun hits it a certain way. Red metal flake will do the same to some affect, the amount of metal flake determines a lot.

    It sure does. I've had several unexpected results using pearls, latest was orange pearl over black = brown, not what I wanted. But that's how you learn I guess.

    If you were sticking with the red and black theme then I'd say go for red rims. I've got stock red rims on my 650R which is fully black and I love the way it looks.

    If you go with the black and white theme, keep the rims black but I would paint the upper half of your tail white to contine the upper white & bottom look. I think that would complete it.
