Beautiful!!! Cover your headlight and taillight with window tint and you will be completely stealth and street legal.

Great work

Looks awesome man! Very nice work. I've never heard of those mirrors before, they're really nice.

Just curious - where do you live?

And one small suggestion - relocate the horn if you can - some Gen1 guys put theirs behind the windscreen and it works great, not sure if it's possible on the 2010.

I was thinking the same thing. Cld also use some VHT nightshades from O'reilleys, like 9 bucks a can. Works really well!

Absolutely awesome. Very stealth-looking. Great work. I bet if you took off the decals many would wonder what kind of bike that was. I especially like the black exhaust. I might try that before replacing mine. How does the paint hold up with the heat? How's about that windscreen at highway speeds? I kinda like the way it looks.

Yeah, it looks kinda sinister ... but in a classy way.

Btw, I love the last pic with the sun setting into the tailsection! :righton:

I had no decals when i was waiting for the new ones and several people asking me what bike it was.. it was kinda funny but i don't want it to look too much self build.. so i put the decals on when i got them this week!
The (heat resistant) paint holds pretty good, it burns in when you ride the first time (according to the label) and it was actually very easy to spray it on.

The windscreen is not deflecting much wind, just a bit more than the oem screen.

Now thats blacked out, top notch. Congrats!

Am interested in how this exhaust paint holds up.

How did you know which plugs to order as no Z is listed?

Thanks!

We'll have to see how long the paint will last.., although it's not really a problem, the flat black paint is easy to repaint.

I have used the ZX-6R plugs.

Nice work, but a little too blacked-out for my taste. I've been drooling over this bike ever since it came out and a burnt orange/graphite color scheme with some chrome on the wheels keeps running through my head.
