stewpid paint question

hey guys.. I am in the process of mounting a dnepr hack to my 03 Strom.. bike is yellow.. I have no idea if i am gonna like this setup but i do wanna go ahead and paint the hack.. my dilema is whether to paint it yellow to match the bike or go w flat black with a clearcoat. my question is if it isnt my cup of tea and i decide to sell the hack , would it be easier to sell with the neutral flat black vs yeller?? thanks

That's a self-fulfilling question. Paint it yellow, you'll like it. Paint it black, you won't. Either way, you'll think you made the right decision.

There is no reason your combination won't be a decen tone if done right. Dnepr wheel can be an issue but other that that with a good mounting system and so foth you whold be okay. Paint it black and yellow like a tiger ....hey paint is your choice.

The big question,are you painting it or having it done? Yellow will show your mistakes better than black.. my GSA/Ural is a 2nd gen Bumble Bee.I'm getting a bunch of Airbrushing done to break up the black its looking really good.Just another thought of what can be done..
