I'd have to see the rest of the bike. Just from those pics tho I might even have to say silver... but it depends on the rest of the bike IMO

Silver. But if it was my bike I probably wouldn't have installed those grips.

Sorry.

Yeah my other friend said that the other day. I guess they do look a little $hitty.

Any recommendation on the grips?

Here ya go...



Keep in mind this. The rear pegs are now black and I am in the process of having the following powder coated as well... Swingarm and Case Covers

...oh yeah, the push rod is also black now too.

by the time you get the powdercoating done, I would say you should try to take the honda wings off the tank, and if you did that then I would vote black.
until then, i would say silver

I did take those "CBR" stickers off already, forgot about that but the Honda wing decals are still on there.

If you leave them on, then go with a silver gas cap. But if you take the wings off or swap them for some black ones, then I'd go with a black cap. The 2 will clash if you don't address both of them IMO

I know our bikes are different colors, but I prefer the black. I also have the silver graphics, but the black brings out lots of the other trim and such, so in my humble opinion, black.

Your bike looks nice but please keep in mind here guys when voting, we are talking about my bike and not black caps in general.

Silver cap until the graphics are gone. Some renthal soft compounds will match your cap real nicely. I've got medium compunds and love them. I bought them for the feel but they look really clean as well. But like I said, Stock cap until you don't have anymore silver, then black will look more natural.

Honestly the black is growing on me and I kinda like it with the silver screws.

It's a really tough call though, that's way I asking for your help.

So vote!
