rworm, looks good. :clap:

Did you pull the throttle bodies, valve cover and header off to paint the barrels?

Very cool. How much time did it take?
You should post a step-by-step in the mod section. Nice work.

yes-could have taped off the valve cover but wanted this to look really good/pulled starter off to get a good job on it :rider: also/that does look like enough black on the motor w/o overdoing it to me

About 7hrs to complete/tank,header,radiator out then the rest is right there easy to get to/biggest part was about 4hrs was cleaning and prep and masking off where no paint needed to get

the 2 choices for me were either red or black.
worms black on black, reminds me of the triumph 3. his treatement to the different parts of his bike, removing the airbox, many items transformed from silver to black, makes the theme of his bike refreshing.

i chose red. i'm afraid if i had chose black, i might be traveling the same road as worm.

Looks of nice work.

You now what you really need, a nice carbon can to muffle it to a nice deep throaty roar. Nothing like the contrast of black carbon fiber.

Something like the Remus Carbon Viper dual port. I even have a new one in the box as well as a donor header system for the bolt on flange to top it off. I'm looking to make a deal?:rider:

The rims really look good with that setup :thumb:

That "muffler" has to be loud... :eek2:

Very nice job, well thought out. Like the rims. I'll bet that pipe is not that loud as the cat converter sucks allot of the sound

Rworm,

I really like the blacked out theme of your bike, will you be changing the bar and tripple clamp to black as well?
