Another option for dressing up the radiator guards besides Carbon Fiber.

Here is step one of a series of customizations that will keep this bike looking like it came from MV this way but much much better. The existing radiator heat guards that were silver and didn't match anything are now an exact match to the cobalt on the front fender and the tank. MV didn't have a color code so it was matched from scratch and still cheaper than replacing with the carbon fiber parts. They look amazing. Next is to take the MV Corse bellypan and match the black red and cobalt in a 3-color scheme reverse of the tank to complete the picture.

The 3rd big change will be the corse exhaust and corse seat. Again all from MV and made to look like they should have been on the bike from the beginning. Just so much better. I don't have the funds to do a complete custom paint which I would love to do, so my option is to match what I already have. This is fortunate because the bike I have is my favorite of the 3 paint options. Love this bike.

A gloss black would look amazing for them to match the tank but not going to get too crazy.

That looks great - and as you say, just like it was meant to be - so even better! Keep going, we've got the same bike!

BTW, if you don't ride two up very often, ditch the rear pegs - really cleans up the side view of the bike

The belly pan is next and the same painter would have to do the intakes, but since it is costing more to paint the bellypan than it did to BUY the bellypan, I'll do it first and then recover and see what's next. And I have a list of female friends who want to ride so the pass pegs need to stay I think. Oddly enough never thought about the intake till you guys mentioned it, thanks for giving me something else to spend $ on.

Same for me

I'm buying an extra set of silver parts and will powder coat them black, haven't decided on the exact shade/sheen yet. Then belly pan, looking for red decals. Looking for an F4 style bump for my passenger seat and a suede top for the rider seat and passenger seats.
