Not Renthal's, but I really like them on my ZX10, and they are black.

I wouldn't bet on that. Ordered and got black ultra lows online from the UK without a problem around two months ago.

I stand corrected. I was speaking of whats available in the US. I wanted black, but it was not an option.

Was told the same thing here as well, can't get black, so I ordered from abroad. Why they can't get it in the US or Aus, who knows?

Parts Canada shows black available.
I plan to order black from my dealer here in Canada right away.
I'll let you know how it worked out.

I bought this at Cycle Gear a while back. At the time only Western Power Sports had them in black. Sorry about the pic quality.

Parts Canada is a distributor and only sells to dealers. I will have to go to a dealer and get them to order it for me.
The US counterpart is Parts Unlimited.
Here is the page from Renthal's own website. It shows the bars available in black. http://www.renthal.com/File/apps1.as...del=&bikedate=

I could not wait any longer to find a set of Ultra low`s in stock at the regular places and ordered a set off of Amazon in gunmetal... Absolutely worth it!! Just remember you need new bar weights that can adapt to low internal diameter bars, I went with these:

I installed Ultra lows on mine last Fall and thought that I would need them. It's actually quite smooth without them. I don't plan on spending the money.. That's just me though.

One more note that might be of help. I didn't have the patience nor the jig I needed to drill the bars for the locating holes. But I happened to have a roll of 3M VHB double sided tape. It's safe to say that the anodizing will come off before this adhesive will, and the controls are tightly fixed in place.

Im sure some guys could run without the ends installed... I am not one of them, I found a there was a little bit of vibes left that I am hoping the weights will fix (not installed yet). Besides, I like the look of the ends to finish the bar

I've found that you don't really need them on the renthals. I've thought about "capping" them with some black plastic plugs but haven't got around to it, as it isn't an issue yet.

But when I look at the bars before hopping on the bike, the ends could do with filling. I guess it's a visual thing.
