    Just received some top quality carbon from O.S. and with the KTM sticker kit should look very classy.

    Ok decals applied to the carbon wings then fitted up to the bike. The result was far better than I imagined and photos don't do it justice. These carbon wings are from Motocomposites and they are top notch and the fit is as original as they come, perfect.

    That is fucking gorgeous. Dreamy, creamy, steamy machiney...

    edit: on a side note. Gonna swap out the mirrors? They look fine and with my own experience aftermarket mirrors are functionally inept, but some low mirrors on that would just make it so crisp.

    Thanks Jobbo, but as you say aftermarket mirrors are usually useless but if I come across something that looks good and works then maybe. I don't mind the standard mirrors at the moment.

    I've got aftermarket CRG bar ends on the Streetfighter and they are brilliant. Although bar ends are usually pretty decent from my experience.. and the SF OEM mirrors give you a great view of your arms

    Thought about powdercoating the rear subframe black?
    Would make the white piece on the tail pop.

    Oh no bro I like it in white as the trellis frame stands out whereas in black fades out into unseen, just have a look at the black model. But get where your coming from.

    Ok, so do they widen the profile of the bike much or at all?

    I was actually going to ask if you'd thought about changing the bag rack to white so it matched with that rear frame!

    With the way I have them yes, but if I really need to split hard I just fold them up. A lot of guys run the CRG Arrows facing down as well so they don't increase bar width.

    I used to have one crg arrow (on the left bar) and that gave me a pretty good view behind, as I always give a fairly big headcheck. The glass is convex to such a degree that I could actually check most of the right-hand lane in it.
    It was on detents, so just fold down when splitting to the lights. Easy

    I like the rack in black as it sort of blends in a bit better and having it white would look out of place IMO. I would take the rack off but it is such a hassle and I like to go away on weekends and leave so it's best just to leave it.

    Next on the list is a pair of Braketech stainless steel wavy discs, I have these on my R1SP and they are well worth the money.

    Here they are on the R1SP.

    The Braketech discs have arrived and bought a set of Probolt Titanium disc bolts to suit. Along with the discs I received some Ferodo HH rated SinterGrip pads so now the rear wheel can spend some time in the air too 😜👍🏍

    Discs fitted up with the Ti bolts and removed those bloody reflectors from the forks.

    Not sure as yet, some more Ti bolts to start with. I do have some RACING stickers for the wheels that I haven't applied yet.
