Just bought a Street Triple R as my 2nd bike. Completely obsessed with it, I don't want to work, just want to ride all day. One of the only things I'm not totally in love with is that red subframe. Does anyone know if an aftermarket part exists for this? The other idea I had was to paint it black. Painting it black slightly scares me because there's no coming back from that, also don't know if it could effect resale.
You're correct that it could be an issue if you come to sell the bike, the red subframe is an obvious feature of the r models, the buyer may think the bike is not a genuine r model or has had an accident.
You could swap the subframe with one from another model maybe from a breakers, shouldn't be a massive job to remove it as you probably have to do this to spray it anyway.
Or what about trying some type of peelable spray paint just to see if you like the change then you can always put it back to standard.
I'm a bit biased as I love the red subframe on my Daytona R😁
Ya, I just realized that the S has that part blacked out. I don't think I'll paint it. My idea in my head was that, that part could be replaced with some aftermarket metal bars, but that probably doesn't exist. I'll just get used to the red. I think I'm just going to switch the exhaust, tail tidy, and mirrors and I'll be happy.
