My biggest complaint with the blue R7 was the color scheme. I love the team Yamaha blue. The matte blue parts I was not a fan of. The teal they added in the decals looked even more out of place. In another post I showed how I removed the teal blue pinstripe. This shows how I had all the parts that were originally matte blue carbon fiber wrapped. I'm very happy with the results! I'm still waiting on my carbon fiber Yoshimura exhaust. I think that will really help tie it all together.

I'm undecided on the ghost look of the R7 and Yamaha decals showing through from underneath. It kind of looks cool but at the same time I feel like it needs the original blue decals to tie it together. I ordered new ones and will see how I like it with them on to make a final decision.

That looks badass! I’ve been thinking about doing the same to mine expect with like a matte black or something. But the carbon looks great. I also didn’t like the matte dark blue or whatever it is that came stock, I took the teal off mine also. Yours looks clean af. Did you take the side fairing off and take them in to get wrapped or did the shop do it all for you?​

I was going to just have it wrapped clear to protect fairing but after seeing this 👀👀👀 might change my mind

hey make actual carbon parts so you don't have to wrap.

I'm all for the light weight of CF but not the looks. Fake CF looks fake so it's even worse and there's no performance gain.

Looks dope man! I saw those parts a month or so ago on TSTs site. I was more interested in wrapping the side fairings like OP did. Stock it’s not actually black, it’s a dark blueish color. I think it’d look way cleaner and sicker with all the teal accents removed and the side fairings in a true black or a black carbon, like OPs.

TST industries smoked flush mount turn signals came in as well as some metallic blue R7 decals forum member Volcom1216. Here are some updated pictures.

Looks better in person. When the light hits it, it has a beautiful shine in different spots of the camo.
