    Bought my beauty almost a year ago and finished adding my personal touches, any more might be too much - possibly!!! :152:

    Very nice, how do u manage to keep the bike so clean.
    I have a couple more plastics to get Carbon dipped and then fit crash bungs. Think that will then do it for me. Was thinking on trade to Triple black next year. But getting to expensive.

    Get yourself a hot water tap plumbed in for outside use and attach it to your pressure washer, you’ll never look back. Oh yes, use it regularly  :152: :008:

    Clean roads, no rain? What are those? My XR has been filthy for months now, just fighting to keep the rust off of it in these horrific times, 1 ride in the rain and chain and brake discs start showing rust spots...

    Not sure about the carbon front mudguard  , i think the original split white/black guard  balances the look out. The only aesthetic mod on my gen 2 was to have the belly pan coded in blue. Its all down to our own personal preferences and who cares as long as we have fun along the way !

    Its funny how expensive these carbon bodywork panels are, absolute ripoff in my opinion, make them yourself, they are waaaayy cheaper that way and it's a good hobby.  :150:
