I am replacing my inner and outer fairing due to an accident I had on the way back from Sturgis. Outer is color matched inner is normal flat black, opinions go with color matched or gloss black? My RG is 07 Fire Red Pearl.

I am a big fan of color matched. So clean looking. My friend is a painter with a paint booth at his house, hopefully doing mine this winter.

Just got my 16 Black Quartz. I did the painted color matched inner fairing and it is killer. Painted all the way!

Color of the bike here, too. The black is nice - but color matched is more of a difference maker than flat black to gloss black. One of the best mods for me, too. Right there in front of you all the time. :grin:

I am also a big fan of a color matched painted inner fairing. I was on the fence before I did mine, thought it may be too much. I think it complete's the look of the bike. Of course till you get to the next mod that will complete the look. Ha ha.

I guess I'll be the odd man out. I'm a fan of gloss black inner fairings. I painted mine myself in gloss black, but added a little orange flake to add some flair. I think the new "specials" are what HD should be doing on all the touring models.

Nothing wrong with color matched, I just prefer a little contrast instead of everything matching.

Color match it! The gloss black looks good on a black bike, but color matched looks finished! Especially with a pearl!

Vivid Black goes with everything.....just saying.

I have had my bike in 3 different colors in 7 years, all with a vivid black inner fairing.

........ CG, i think yer just lazy ...... & don't wanna pull the gauges & radio & glovebox doors ..... :wink:
Yup, getting all the wiring back after the first time was a hassle, let alone 2 more times. Black goes with everything and the smooth of the vivid black is much easier to keep clean.
