Got my highmount exhaust

Hey guys I got my highmount system that i bought from scottm today and Its sweet! I need your input tho I'm thinking about powdercoating the cans black and keeping the polished tips. Figured that'll look good on my 05'. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

I'd say go for it. Black out the cans and mids. Then the exhaust would blend in with the bike.

Personally I'm not a fan for the highly polished aluminum or chrome on my bike.

But it's your bike, mount them up and see what you think.

I'm the same about the chrome. I wanna order gold TechG rearsets, gold and black Pazzo levers so I don't think the polished cans will look rite.

Those cans look very clean and I'd save them. There are plenty of slightly scratched cans that with a bit of elbow grease would clean up for a powdercoat very nicely.

Vote for black.
If the Moriwaki purists wouldn't hang me for it I'd probably anodize my Ti rainbow exhaust black.......

Black chrome would certainly look cool. Sounds heavy though
