1 - Just take off the stock fender and get integrated lights. Looks cleaner and more stylish.

2 - Plate holders are nice. Personally, I think the swing arm mounted ones are cruiser style. They dont look right on the sportbikes. I made a Carbon Fiber one (actually I made 3) It came out cleaner looking on the bike, its strong, and I hooked LED's into it. It looks great. I can make you one for the cost of materials and shipping.

3 - Frame sliders are a great idea. I would go with the no-cut sliders, they are not as durrable but if you are a perfectionist and you cut the faring wrong you will be pissed. Colored sliders seem to fade a lot easier and dont look as good. I also heard CF sliders are too strong and can bend the mounts upon a crash.

4 - Get HID's off ebay. They are the cheapest. You can get either the regular kit or the slim kit. It is your choice. Your best off getting a full kit with 2 ballasts and 2 bulbs. Watch some kits sell a motorcycle kit which is just 1 ballast and 1 bulb. You need 2 (1 lo, 1 hi)
