Ive always wondered why people put decals on bikes. Unless they are giving you a check why bother?
Hmmmm, you could say that about the bike itself, if you look at it like that.

If you bought the bike new in the UK, going by what you have said, you have just handed Honda £10k............. to advertise Honda :rolleyes:

I get what your saying, but I think some sponsor decals break up the stock pattern and make the bike stand out from the rest, having said that I have seen some bikes with an over load of decals that makes them look like a dogs dinner!

Each to their own, I guess

Peace!

Well if the bike comes like that from the factory like that its one thing, but to put stickers on a bike and call it a "mod" like the thread starter did is silly to me. But to each his own.. I do like to stir the pot.. :D

Where did you get the CNC rear caliper mount?
And would you know if they have one for an SP2?
And the bike looks great.
It's a good feeling when a project is completed (at least for the time being).

This hanger is an OEM part. I just cutted out inside panels and machined the overall surface a little bit to make it possible to anodize it Titanium colour. I whanted to match hanger colour with clutch cover and sprocket cover colours.
