nope, but the guy who had my bike before me did that. He did a real nice and boy did it look bitchen! Now the bike actually gets ridden and well...how do you feel about black with red(or white depending on plastic color) pin stripes?:applause:

I personally wuold not recommend this to anyone, unless you NEVER put the bike down and then is it really dirtbiking?

NO.

Buy some black plastics. Except for the front fender which i like to paint flat black or sand alittle so the light doesn't glare off of it.

just my opinion of course,

yoshi would be better...looks and sounds cooler

for the price i paid on my pipe and header, i can live with the looks and sound. $320 for the FMF Q2 and Power Bomb header, brand new! and yes, the yoshimura would be better...... on my GSXR750
