If you do it paint the heat shield on the exhaust & get the factory rearsets powder coated black!!! Just 2cents, I think it would look clean!!

with a polished lip i think u should leave the forks. too many people with pc'd forks, your bike looks too clean the way it is. just like an 03/04 should. i like the offset of the silver and black. maybe the rear sets in gold, imo. check out cvlighthouse's bike (if he ever gets it done);-)
