Ghost Flames
@ET_Geckoe A question from the uninformed. What are "Ghost Flames"? I have flames on my 650 custom tank but have never heard the term 'Ghost Flames'.

Ghost Flames
I think it's when the flames are applied and built up with colored lacquer rather than blocks of colour so it gives a more three dimensional effect. I've seen this done with skills as well, very effective!

I also have the ghost flames on my tank. They are light gray on my black tank, not really visible unless you are right up near the bike...thus the term "ghost flames".
