What color was your bike before? I am looking for a matte black body as well. I like your bike. Looking sharp. Need smaller signals IMO. I had a 17 tooth sprocket and felt the same way as you. I now run a 16/45. Found it to be the best combo.

You take good pics. Matte black is hard to photo.

A lot of us have roughed up the stock mirrors nd then shot em with a good quality rattle can, with good results. I've done mine a year ago and they still look great.

Loose the swingarm sticker. Otherwise looks cool.

Bafflectomised cans sound good, don't they.

How much do you want for the 17t?


Bike looks good, not a fan of the stock mirrors or signals though.

i rattle caned my stock mirrors after sandblasing them, road about 75 miles in a rain storm at 60mph and peeled the paint off. bought my crgs next day.. though they looked good for a month or so. it was the rain that did it.
