Looks good. Would look better if you powder coated the pegs and levers black too. Also, you could spray paint the exhaust pipe gaurds. .

Hi Derrick! thanks for your input! I like the fact that its not 100% black too. a bit of contrast with the bolts. I try to pictures it with everything you said black too. If you have any pictures Id be very curious to see!
thanks!

Looks nice. Welcome to the forum. You need to get some carbon fiber Akra slip ons to go with it. Looks sweet!

Welcome to the madhouse,your modification bug is only beginning. Definitely picked a good bike,somehow they look out of place without the oem r1 stickers on the side fairings.

Hi Wings of Gold! thanks, hahah yes I have all winter to play with it. So far I've only change air filter for a K&N, and switch it to amsoil syntec 10w40. I think that will be it. I don't have extra cash to invest. I decided to get the bike I wanted, but the downside here in Quebec is the plates are 1100$ per year. I got my dream bike with very low mileage, but I wont have extra to put in. Only maintenance and plates will cover my budget. I just put some new tires on it, Michelin Power Pilot.

hahah poutine Province indeed! I'm just around Magog, only a 30min from the border (VT). some fun riding to be seen around the memphremagog lake!
