Finished My New Tail Project ... finally!!

Couldn't help myself ... had to show off my new tail fairing after all the help I have received from so many of you on this forum.

After breaking the tail light and connector tab of the original Repsol tail fairing, I have replace both. The solid black tail is growing on me and I have a pair of silver "Repsol" decals on order so you know I'll be posting more pics once they show up.

Sorry it took me forever to get this posted but here's a pretty good shot of the exhaust. It was like this when I bought the bike ... looks like someone just cut down the stock one. Sounds really sweet!!

I like that.....I like that a lot. How much different/louder does it sound compared to a stock one? Is the can just cut down or the pipe too?

Nice exhaust, but the chicken strips and the squared up middle of the tire looks like crap. Take that thing to the track

Really tough to accurately describe the sound ... very cool though. Don't see any evidence of the pipe being cut ... pretty sure it's just the can. They cut out a flame with the top part of what they eliminated. Super cool looking but a bee-otch to keep clean!!

I'm just saying. I don't see the point of advertising oil on a street bike or track bike. But I would put a big rotella t6 sticker over the repsol to mess with people

So what about the monster edition Kawi? That's dumb too? Or any racing leathers with a few company patches? Even helmets that have brand names on them or race replicas. I guess you just buy no name eBay leathers and scrub the names off the tires so no one knows what you ride.
