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.
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.
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.
