Finished up my mods for 2014

Ok so here is how the bike started when I got it 2 years ago.

It's a good change I think. Last year it was in the shop of a cct damage most of the year due to a head sale that went south hoping to get some miles on it this year!!!!!

I haven't seen anyone put that vinyl design on the nose. I really like it!

Super nice mods. think that's the best part about bikes, you can put your on personnel touch on them.

The black frame, legs & other bits work well with the black graphics and looks good.

I really like the fact that you brought the edges of the black nose design to the edge of the headlight. The usual graphics packages you see on our bikes has the nose design stop where the plastic fairing pieces touch each other. It just looks odd in my opinion. It looks so much better the way you did yours. Nice job man.

Nice job. Have you considered blacking out the radiator grills too?

I think that would work. Maybe carry the red stripe across them too, though, parrallax would probably screw up the effect if your viewing angle weren't perfect.

That would be pretty cool I have the red and black paint to do it. Would it cause the airflow to be disrupted? there is just covers on the radiators isn't there that I could take off and paint?

I think we're all talking about painting just the protective grate that covers the radiator. I think painting the actual radiator fins is asking for trouble. Trouble for for your paint and for airflow.
