i have put on a few carbon fiber pieces on mine and am satisfied with it

i purchased alot from ebay...

skid plate... 40$ ebay
frame guards... 100$ from Yamaha dealer.... GYTR
i have the carbon fiber upper fork covers... 30$ from ebay

i purchased some carbon fiber lookalike sticker and applied it to my lower fork covers and front brake line cover thing as well as to the rear brake protector and they look GREAT... just took my time and used a heat gun

i also purchased a new set of levers from ebay for around 20$ that look like they are wrapped in carbon

now i just need a black background number plate kit and a carbon fiber airbox and ill be happy...

i have seen carbon fiber crank case and clutch side engine covers in magazine but never for sale?

those would look quality

and there is also a GYTR carbon pro exhaust system on EBAY right now... bidding is around 200$ but will probably finish near 400$ i bet

that pipe looks real nice
