No matter how much white or yellow you use on the intake it still leaves a big black hole, which can make #88 look like 818 or 878. Not to mention the problem created when you have a 3 digit number (do you put numbers 1 and 3 on either side of the intake and stagger the middle digit above the intake?) Now that's even harder to read.Mongo, not sure what feedback you're getting from your scorer's, if this is a problem for them. It's easier when you get familiar with your regular riders (oh yeah, that's Mitch on his silver R6 and he's #77 - not 777).The main thing is if the scorer's or starter has to take even a half a second longer to read a number, they could miss 2 or 3 other bikes going by in a pack.It's back to the same old story - what looks good to you in the shop, with the bike sitting on stands all pretty and new, is no where near what it looks like coming down the front straight at 150!
