Been busy this past month, sold my green '09 & finally got my white '07 project bike almost stock 10/5 with ASV shortie levers, Akrapovic CF rear hugger & heat shield cover, and the deal maker/key piece you can't seem to buy anymore & I've been searching for... Watsen Designs Flushmounts with running lights! LOL the hardest part to find & I've been searching for, WooHoo!
Humble beginnings, aka the BEFORE pic:
Since then, been busy with mostly aesthetic mods along w/ Akra bits & CF trim. It's been rainy in Seattle/Pacific NW, so bike's been on the stands being upgraded as parts arrive. Started with black reflective shadow wings (black in daylight, reflective silver at night), adds a sharper edge to the graphics & improved visibility at night. Then, custom reflective red rim tape & custom reflective rim logos similar to Sincali's, but using red RRs. Reapplied the OEM CBR Racing midfairing decals (previous owner debadged) to tie in the red highlights. Tripage treatment w/ IT, fender eliminator/plate illuminated bracket, LED relay, powdercoated passenger pegs. Mounted Bridgestone S20s from Motomummy.
Credit to Shadoh for the custom seat design (via Luimoto), added the red RR to to tie-in red highlights. Puig smoked DB. Added the $$s but ohh so sexy looking & sounding Akrapovic exhaust. Carbon fiber front fender, and tank lower panels. Techspec C3 tank grips. Driven Limited Ed. White D3 grips, and black custom bar ends w/ silver RRs.
Then added CBRKP & Armon's amazing S2K clear lens dual projectors, along with my PIAA 6000K D2S bulbs from my last Audi S4.
Pic from today w/ the last CF bits installed.
Props to Brian/MOTY Design for turning my custom gauge LED mod in a day, no more ugly amber display!
New Akra & Tripage IT cuz they're so SEXY!
I think I'm done modding for this month. Got my eye on a Power Commander next (PC III or PCV... hmmm?) but my wallet's pretty empty. ; ) Safe riding & happy modding... Cheers!

The Following User Says Thank You to MadDawgRR For This Useful Post:
That seat looks amazing, might have to steal that design concept for when I have mine done; not an exact copy, I'd have it red based.
Thanks, love the seat look as well, & really sets off the bike. However, credit actually goes to Shadoh for the original custom design of the main rider seat, I just modified it for the Red RR highlights. Passenger seat is the standard available called Tribal Blade. Would probably look pretty sweet in red...
Patrick Luimoto was awesome to work with, and top quality as you may have heard. He turned the seatcovers in about a week even with the custom design I requested.
Yea looks good is there one between the rider and tank as well? I'm looking for something other than the cheap looking "progrip" flebay ones.
Tech spec makes a tank pad, but it's expensive and doesn't look that good IMO.
I think the official honda CF tank pad looks the best.
You could always go with an orbital tank pad. They're pretty cheap with tons of designs.
NuttyNu, this color scheme is basically my dream. I've been staring at this bike for hours! I love the red wheels and rim tape, the fade between red/black on the lowers, gold levers, the black/red around the windscreen.. God DAMN! I want it!
