Looks good! Maybe you already know it but I would be careful with the contrasting of red on black and black on red on a red bike. I've seen them where there was so much red on black and black on red everywhere that it looked confusing and un balanced, a red/black nightmare. Just a heads up but like I said, yours looks good and most of all, it's your bike. It's just a suggestion.

ya I agree can def get to be too much.
hopefully I haven't hit that point and I think I'm mostly set on the cosmetic mods.
only thing I was still considering was a black radiator guard and a black and red engine cover.
other than that my next big mod will be suspension.

swapped the passenger pegs with black ones that look almost identical to the rear sets and wow looks so much better.

You never saw my friends red on black, SR500. It looked like Beelzebub's bike itself, wicked nasty!!. Wish I had a pic of it to show you.

The only thing that looks bad is the dB killer still in the pipe. :P
 
What'd you use to paint the covers above the rearsets? I want to do mine, but can't decide what I want to use to do it. I'll probably just use some PlastiDip to see how I like it. I'm mostly just worried about the shade of black not flowing.

i LOVE LOVE LOVE the mirrors.
super high quality, don't vibrate at all and the field of vision is vastly superior.

the heel guards came with the rear sets so i just replaced the stock ones.

oh ya also replaced the small DRL bulb in the headlamp housing with a 194 LED wedge bulb so it now matches the cyclops headlight.
