Carbon R1.

What do you think so far? Still have a few pieces getting made and haven't sprayed the tank yet or got the seat covers yet.

Carbon came from crown moto believe it or not they did a good job making it. I found the mid inserts mdi makes them so I already ordered them last night I was double thinking the windscreen to. Kinda over board but not sure what color to go with if I don't use the carbon. I'll tell u what the carbon saved me abut 15lbs off the oem fairings
