I decided I like the look of black rearsets so I picked up a set of gilles from a member here. They are missing a few parts so I am still using the factory shifter and the rear brake isn't exactly as it should but they are working for now.

I also installed some 5000k hids from kryptonblubs and a set of fdb shorty levers. I meant to order the ones with the black adjusters but the red ones don't look bad. I like the way they feel, and it only took them 4 days from ordering to my door.

One of the balasts is bad on the hids (bright), sometimes it will work and I can turn it off and it won't turn back on but my tail light does its startup sequence. Already have a new one in the mail from Josh at kryptonbulbs, great customer service.




Next up will be some new grips, I cant get the ones I have to stick so they are always rotating and sliding up and down. I think they are too soft. Im probably going to pick up some renthals or something here soon.

If you have a hard time finding gilles replacement parts (sometimes they can be hard to find) let me know and I can put you in contact with the English speaking Gilles sales guy and you can buy direct from them. It normally takes 3-4 days via express mail from Germany to the U.S.

I do love the sound, I have been thinking about shortening the pipe to make the can sit closer
