I like it.
But I would make the "ninja" and Japanese characters much smaller.

Remove the word 'Ninja.' Leave the kanji. Sometimes subtlety is much more powerful than screaming your message.

should i remove "Ninja" completely or put it somewhere else?
I would remove it completely & go w/ the smaqller kanji. I have a SE & stripped all of the decals except for on the tank cuz it's under the clearcoat & then on the back of the seat cowl. That is the only place on the motorcycle that it even says NINJA. I think it "Looks Very Clean" & that is the exact comment I get from others alot. I too am from the school of subtlety. Too much is too busy & distracts from what you are going for.

The reason the kanji is so big is because I like how the large kanji is in the busa. It makes it look really distinctive

I am a big fan of "busy". I think the new GSXR (in blues) looks way nicer than the plain 14. I like the second version with the smaller letters. I think what is clashing is the actual color of the red. If you are going to spray them, I would mask everything, I would suggest doing them in grey or white, or even silver, and then getting some Brandywine Kandy (House of Kolor) and using an airbrush, shade the edges. If you put a 1/8 inch piece of tape around them, before the shading, and then remove it and shade both, you might get a nice raised effect. Then clear the stuff and take off the masks. I'm sure there are better ideas, but I'd play with the colors. Oh - make sure youdo test pieces first LOl (been there - done that)

i actually wanted them silver but its hard to make silver in photoshop
It would appear that great minds think alike! Don't forget to get something like House Of Kolor plastic prep (AP 01). I love the Orion Silver stuff. Still think you need to enhance the edges. There are places that will custom cut vinyl too (not as nice, but you can change your mind). Good luck.

I've seen the car/motorcycle build before. I saw a zx14/ dodge viper build once that I kind of liked . But still not quite my thing .
