I love the sound of the Jardine but every time I see a rear shot the first thing that comes to mind is a pig's snout.

In terms of sound, the Jardine is easiest the best sounding exhaust I've had on ANY bike. I've grown accustomed to the look. But I am going full Akra or Leo Vince next spring so it'll be gone

I wish Akra still used the exhaust muffler from the 05-06 on the 07+. That would easily be the best looking full/slip-on exhaust. I'm a little surprised you want a Leo again. I figured since you had that you would go with something else this time. I know if I had the option to buy again I would trade my Leo for something else.

Who knows. It'll all come down to what's the cheapest when I'm ready. So far I'm diggin the jardine a lot! The bike is pretty much where I want it to be in a cosmetic sense. The rearsets need to be PC'd (not painting these). Then exterior will be done

Still waiting on my ddm HIDs though. I'm not ordering from them again. This is the second time it's taken over 2 weeks for an item to come.

This picture inspired me to PC my wheels white

http://www.600rr.net/vb/attachment.p...2&d=1335457911

How effin hot does that look? I don't care about the wheels getting dirty either. This might be my next mod. I would probably drop it off at my mechanic's shop and have him dismount everything including the tires and send it over to his PC guy. I'll probably have him mount some Q2's on in the process.

Anyone know APPROXIMATELY how much PC'ing wheels would cost?

That has been on my mind to do for a long time. Love the look of white wheels. Just need to get down and do it already. I know Tripage tries to keep his rates competitive even with the price of shipping wheels. Would be worth the time to inquire how much from him.

i believe upward of the 500 mark but no more than 700. and that price includes dismounting tires, mounting new tires or old tires back, checking for straightness and speed balancing. check out Papos Auto Clinic in Queens Village. they did my wheels. oh yeah and turn around time was 2 days. dropped it off late tuesday and got them on my bike for my thrusday morning commute

If I was local to tripage then absolutely. But being that I'd have to ship my wheels to him, that would cost a lot. So going the tripage route here wouldn't really be cost effective.

Yea thats what I said to figured the white would match the bike so it'd be reversed from the rest of it and maybe a OEM white hugger just to add a little more

Been unemployed since May (when I finished my MBA) and still can't find a damn job. Between spending countless hours applying to jobs online, I manage to have the time to do DIY jobs on the bike. Today I painted the rearsets. This same paint proved to be durable on my last 07 when I did the rearsets - there was no chipping. So instead of forking over money to get them PC'd, I painted these as well.















cleaned and lubed chain too

rearsets look good man, btw get rid of those nasty swing arm decals lol :P Also want to mention about HID kits, not sure what your plan is, but no way in hell id buy a kit that didnt have UV cut bulbs, my old ddm kit caused the "hazing" or "fogging" on my low side, dont risk this happening to you! trust me you'll be pissed if it happens. For some reason it doenst happen to everyone? just wanted to mention that

thanks guys!

I actually did get a HID kit. It was all plugged up and everything, but I couldn't, for the life of me, find a nice place for the ballast and that other rectangular box to sit inside the fairing. There seemed to be too much interference and the fairings wouldn't join together flush. I'm not a perfectionist, but I couldn't stand the way the fairings weren't lining up. SOMETHING wasn't sitting right, but it's getting cold and I don't have the patience to do this outside in the cold. I put the kit away and will tackle it once spring comes. I even cut out a nice hole behind the lens cover...so the job was more/less done, but the fairings fitment was bad with the ballast box and that other rectangular box attached to the HID.

I had one of those alleged "Xenon HID style look" bulbs laying around in the H7 size. It's far from looking like an HID (like the picture shows) lol but I will say in person it's a tad more white even though it's just a bulb replacement.

There are some stronger more durable paints out there, and it would be better to use those especially on wear items like pegs, but in my experience this exact Duplicolor paint has held up VERY well. I'm hoping it's the same case this time around. I didn't even bother with primer.

I'm not a perfectionist with this bike. If I was then I would have PC'd the rearsets for sure. Call me crazy, but I like having a few scratches here and there

I would keep the tail white, but if did paint your tail black I would try something like a reverse of the Euro white tail.



Black tail with a white or silver sticker on the cowl like the euro version. Might look kinda nice and flow with the bike.

Look what I scored for $40!...a black cowl in "good" condition, relatively speaking

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2007-HONDA-C...vip=true&rt=nc

Auction started at $25 and I got it for $27 plus shipping. Win?! I'm not even concerned with that little rash on the left hand side. I have some VERY close matching touch up paint that'll be applied once that area is sanded down.

And something else that caught me by surpsie...Arai RX-Q gifted to me by my gf and my buddy. My very first Arai! I have a Shoei RF1100 as well, but it's nice to finally have an Arai :). It's funny because I was in talks with Jason from STG about buying this, but my gf and buddy were in talks with him all along trying to surprise me. He would have told me it was sold out once I was ready to buy, so that I don't end up getting 2 Arai's ha. So shout out to Jason!



This brightened up my day...a day where I spent 7 hours applying to jobs yet again
