Talking New paint, powder coat, and goodies! Woohoo!

So, I finally got my 9er back from the shop, after being gone for almost a month... Oh how I missed her. haha Anyway, she got a new paint job, matte black. Powder coated the wheels bronze. Installed a new lightweight single can carbon fiber exhaust (DanMoto), and I personally installed the Custom LED integrated tail light.

Thanks! Soon to come, a carbon fiber windscreen to match with the clutch cover, and exhaust. I just need to find or fabricate some brackets for it...

I like the gold wheels, I think I'm getting tired of the black wheels on mine.

Purdy... I've got the batman theme song stuck in my head now.

Now you need to powder coat the swing arm.

Looks awesome. The wheels are especially nice. They are a perfect complement to the black.

Dood! Those wheels look terrific! That's the same color as my Givi crash bars, and my Renthals. I have been considering doing something similar for awhile...Well done, sir!

Well done, sir!

Edit: which CF windscreen did you get? If it's the CF Buell flyscreen, your bike will be looking verrry similar to mine!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Very slick. The color combination is spot on.

I looked on the DanMoto website but all I found was dual options for the hornet (919) where did you get that exhaust and what are the dimensions of of it. I have a two brothers single side currently and am looking on doing a 900rr conversion and I am curious if that will work because i really like the look of it

P.S. how does it sound?

Edit: I would actually like to be able to use it currently with the two brothers single side pipe and later for a 900rr conversion if that is possible

Oh really? I'd like to see that. Post up a couple pics. The windscreen I got is one of Ripper's, I think. It's the OEM Carbon Fiber replica. But the holes on it were predrilled and the Buell brackets don't work for it. So I'm kinda screwed on that one... =/

Here's a video of the exhaust from when the previous owner had it. Hope this helps. He says that he uses his current 2Bros single side mid-pipe and mates that up to a cbr exhaust from the DanMoto website. I'm just gonna go ahead and say that it's incredible. Sounds soo mean, and my butt dyno says it gained a few hp.
