That's a beautiful machine and what the Hell happened to your swingarm.

I think the prior owner let battery acid drip down. The frame and the swingarm are getting polished as soon as my dude finishes his garage.

Looking good, minus the swinger.
But what's up with the headlights?

I could tell that.
But how do they compare to the halogen bulbs?

What shade of blue is the sky? Totally subjective dude.

I tried similar H7 LED's once after believing the sales blurb on Ebay. They looked cool all white and patterned but not really effective at lighting the road. Not safe at night as far as visibility that I'd need so I switched back to some conventional Halogen bulbs (with fairly dark blue tint to get white-ish light). Get as close as possible to 5,700 and a decent brand and they'll be close to white.

Euro RC51 SP2: HRC WSB Ti Hi-Level, T1 Airbox & Snorkel, PCIII, Dymag CA5 Carbon Wheels, Ti64 Spindles (F, R & Swing Arm), Mori Link, Maxton GP7 Shock & Ohlins 832 Forks, Brembo GP Calipers & SBK narrow track (F), Braketech Disc (R), Brembo billet Underslung x 2 Brembo RCS, Tyga Triple, 7075 Stem, Probolt Titanium all over, Babyface rearsets, MR Complete Carbon Lineup, Custom Undertail & CBR 1000 LED, Watsen LED Indicators, Harris Brace, Giles clip-ons, Corbin seat, etc. 2013 BOTY.
