    Had my subframe, pannier brackets and tail tidy painted in BMW Racing Red to suit the rest of the frame, wanted to do this even before I bought the bike, I just can understand why it’s not the same colour as the main frame, I will post the finished photos when I have finished RE-assembling it

    I can't for the life of me understand why BMW didn't do this in the first place. Yours will look the finished article. Nicely done sir.

    Ah well ain't we all tempted when offered garrotting and throttling? That was what you meant wasn't it?

    I agree.
    Perhaps in their minds this is the compromise that distinguishes your bike it from their competition at Ducati?

    I have have had a price to powder coat rear frame only, ( if the company can get the code for the colour) £300-320, 2 hrs to remove at BMW, so that's another £200, total up to £520 .

    I actually like it like it is, with just that little bit of red. Although i will be interested to see the final result sideshowbob.

    Looks good. I like the full red frame better than the original.

    I really like the looks of the white R1200R with the full red frame.

    I see they still color all the frame on the R1200R.

    If I had more money and a bigger garage that would be my 2nd bike.
    I would need the bigger garage because Debbie also likes that same bike in white and red.

    Like the subframe but I'll pass on the tail tidy and pannier rails

    Yes I know what you mean, my son in law told me not to, but I think it will look ok
    The pannier rails only get fitted when I use the panniers (couple of times a year on holidays) and you can only see a little bit of the tail tidy
