Why waste all that money?

With all that money you could just buy a leather suit and go to the track several times.... especially the CF bits... what's the point? I can see a couple little dress up bits, like the cowl, but after that...

carbon fiber is way overpriced.
but the cowl is a good look. dont see many of them around on the honda's or yami's.

The amount of weight savings from those three items could be dropped by just taking a chit before you ride, and it wouldn't cost you $425...


It's all just for looks.

i have alpinestar track pants that zip into my alpinestar MX1 leather jacket and alpinestar gp pro gloves along with SMX+ boots...and my arai

so gear im all set on.

I want a new hugger because mine got scratched up when I ended up doing an endo by accident when some bitch cut me off earlier this summer and my liscens plate scratched it up, the exhaust guard looks better than the silver junky thing that is on there now....and you cant have a chain guard that isnt carbon fiber when the hugger is....just looks stupid imo...and i like the way it looks

I want pazzo levers

and i think the rest of the mods are good ones to do.

Hopefully when i get back from Benning next year when i leave I can grab a 600 and make it a pure sport bike

Well if you're all set on gear, that money could buy you almost a whole season of TD's. Your money though

And buy a 600? Didn't you just have one that you sold? I think you just like to change things for the sake of changing them

let me know how the 1000RR does on the 2cts, if you get the edges wearing out extremely prematurely.. i wanted to try em but as it is ill wear out the edges of the basic powers first.. i dont wanna have to commute non stop just to get the center worn out to justify a new set and wont replace tires when the middle is still so good... i wind up commuting off the last 500 miles of center tread.

Nice bike, but that exhaust is gross. The stocker fits much better.
