My intent was to go gold to tie in the calipers. We'll see how I like it going forward. I agree red and gold is good. I see mustangs in red with gold stripes and always liked it. Maybe a gold chain next! for the bike not my neck.
Which Renthals are those??
Renthal Mediums. Don't think I would like the ultra lows. I got rid of my CBR because just couldn't stand the hand pain anymore. These are pretty relaxed. Bout like the stockers, but wider.
what seat is that????
Corbin gunfighter and lady with "carbon fiber" leather. I also have the slide in backrest. Bought it with leftover cash from my CBR sale.
How much of a pain in the posterior was it to put those grips on? I have the same grips from when I had them on my dearly departed Nighthawk and it was a bit of a pain to put them on, so I just haven't been able to get myself to go ahead and go through it again.
The left is cake. it just slides right on and secures with 2 set screws. The right completely replaces the stock throttle sleeve assembly. It comes with several size "gear rings" which the grip locks into. Getting the 2 cables around the gear ring and locked in place is pretty frustrating. When you pull on one cable, it retracts the other. Took a 1/2 hour of putzing or so but they look great. The rubber inserts are pretty grippy as well. By the way, the airhose trick works like magic to get rubber grips off pain free with no cutting!
Where did you get the radiator grille cover, that is great looking.
Romatech on Ebay. $70 shipped from Germany. Stainless mirror finish and bolts right on. Didn't like having the radiator exposed to flying debris the way it is. Hopefully it never has to do its job but at least it looks good not doing it!
Thanks for all the positive feedback. I have a set of Scorpion slip-ons waiting from fellow WT amchev, but I am going to need to have some mid pipes fabbed or something. Scorpion will sell the mounting parts, but not the midpipes.
