Cylinder Logo

I added a nice touch to make the "6" stand out. Remove the small center plastic piece by gently prying up with a thin screwdriver. BE CAREFUL NOT TO BREAK IT OR LOSE IT. Then remove the small torx screw and the 6 will come off. Paint the 6 with a few coats of chrome or aluminum paint and let dry.

can you hand paint the little fins next to the 6 as well, that'd look sharp

I should but my hand's not that steady. That would look nice, though.

Or you could just buy the chrome version from BMW. See picture (s). Comes with the black plastic insert and a new screw. Some more pics of front mods. Carbon fender and wind wings, 7Jurock .24 thick Goldwing vent 19" flip dark tint shield. Handlebar pouch...
The devil is in the details...how about the yellow roundel??

The =6= looks pretty slick (both versions) but, to be perfectly honest, the yellow roundel doesn't float my boat. I like that you like it, though.

The chrome is peeling off the edges of my 6 logo. Contemplating replacement or painting. The yellow rounded really pops against the black bike. I prefer BMWs corporate blue & white, but yours does look sharp.

That will give the GW at least a 10HP boost.

What we need to do is swap the black with the silver - two happy campers!
