Definitely diggin' the white wheels. :fact
Thanks! Was going to do them gold, would have been a big mistake lol, a lot of people do them gold but I love the white. Not even that bad cleaning them, just wipe em down once I get home.

White wheels are definitely :pimp

Maybe a touch of red rim stripe (thin ones)?

Not a fan of race rails....:nono
Ya I was thinkin about some rim tape but haven't decided if I want to throw it on yet or not, should def try it if I don't like it I could just peel it off. Wasn't too thrilled on the race rails either once I put them on but I need to protect my bike and didn't want to go with a full cage, I don't ride track so it doesn't bother me much, they are beefy lol....

Wheels look good! I prob would have done a chain/gear set when the wheels were off...and dressed that up a bit too. Maybe lose the stock mirrors for a CRG bar end? Losing the mirrors seams to give a sleek look as they are kinda high, IMO. Still, good looking bike.

White isn't bad right? Doing the sprockets/chain this weekend my buddy was in a rush so I couldn't get him to do it while he was putting the rims on lol... Just researched the bar end mirrors seem to be a little weird looking lol I know my stock mirrors are high, maybe I should just get rid of them.

Bar ends come in all shapes and sizes and I agree some look worse than others. CRG lane splitters are round and small enough to blend in while large enough to provide vision. They aren't for everyone. :) If you were to remove your stock mirrors...gotta replace them with something. lol

I don't like the race rails either, but to protect that great bodywork. I would have done the same thing.. Now, all you need are some choice rearsets to help out the race rails.

Very tru thinking about some nice rear sets any ideas? I have my shifter setup GP shifting would aftermarket ones change that? Also saw a lot about back break not signaling w rear sets, is that tru?

I just put vortex rear sets on my black and gold r6 and i love them. they're adjustable so you get to pick the position of the pegs that is most comfortable to you. they also feel more responsive in my opinion with the gear shift, less movement needed to shift gears or something i donno. all in all i love them. They're also blacked out so they look great on my black bike
