I know what I'm fapping to tonight.

How are the mid fairings being held in place? My 07 has two bolts on the top and one at the bottle, looks clean.

The 08 mids are held on by interlocking tabs at the top...kind of a pain in the ass compared to the 06-07...but the trade off is definitely cleaner...

hmmmmmmmmmm I really like it. It is def different. The only thing I will ad is, the mid fairing: gloss black instead of flat and the tank fairings, smooth them out and paint them gloss black. I think those will be the final touches to your sexy bike.

I'm not a fan of the KR, but it looks real good on your bike.

Those are some good suggestions...I like the way you think :cheers

Love the way it sounds but Ive never liked how the KR can inlet starts its taper so far out of the lower fairing...but after I blacked it out, it looks a little better...Im this close (holding thumb and forefinger about 1/4 inch apart) to pulling the trigger on a full Graves works TI system...its hard not to with the deals those guys are offering:fact

Thank you sir :cheers Im in Lakeside, my parents live in Mission Valley though, thats my old stompin grounds...

Powdercoat the gas cap and kick stand. looks awesome
Getting an aftermarket gas cap is definitely next on the list...and I havent found a place here locally that does powdercoating...I commute on her daily so having my bike down for any extended period of time is a :nono or Id ship it out to have it done...

And thanks for all of the compliments guys :cheers

ima be honest, not a big fan of the white. just my opinion....
Its all good, everyone is entitled to their own opinion...and thats why I posted some pics, so I could get peoples opinions

When I first got her, my first vision was to completely murder out everything...once I blacked out the can, I was done. And looking at it from a distance something just didnt look right, kinda looked cheap (even though its clean) or generic. So I decided to get some contrast in there. Theres another member here that converted his 06 raven into a 50th anni; thats where I got my idea of the theme I went for.

And on an even more important perspective, theyre just decals, if I dont like them, they peel off.

There are certain sections I feel are missing something (like above the Yamaha decal) maybe a white background in the shape of soft edged diamond... or maybe another decal er something...

Ill finger it out...

Thank you sir :cheers

Your bike and new mods look great bro! The new lid is cool too.
My cousin has a 50th anniversary and have to admit I really like
that scheme. 100% better on the KR tuned exhaust.

Yeah, Ill have to admit, blacking out the can turned out pretty good...

But those LP mirrors are garbage:fact probably the cheapest mirror out there...when in a normal riding position, all you see is wrists...and if they sit in the sun for any length of time, they get hot and the glass portion gets real loose in the housing and rattles...not only making a sound that makes me sick, but out of the 2% viability I get from them, the vibration make it completely impossible to see anything at all.

So one would ask, why did I get them? Well, I dont know really, I just wanted something other than the stock ones on there...I do like the way they look, but am seriously considering putting the stockers on...:D
