The black looks great. I just ordered my Delkevic header and the prices are great. I am going to keep the stock muffler/silencer. Did you have yours coated after you bought the headers?

Iím glad you like it, and it is your bike. This is my rant because I do not get black on black on black, every freakin bike out there is black.  :013:
Iím glad the RS comes in many great colors. Triumph is also mostly on the black boat. Black paint, black engine, god dam all this black... I had to buy my Tiger in black. I passed on a new ZX-6R because... you guessed it, dealers bringing in the all black. Looks like crap, No contrast whatsoever, you cannot even make the shape of the bike. /rand over...

Mine would piss you both off, I like black and silver, so blacked out some bits and fitted polished rim wheels  :305:

Ha! Not at all. I think everyone should do whatever looks good to them.

I think the polished rim wheels transform the black bike to the best look I have seen on one so far.  Thanks for the photos.

I don't mind peoples rants, we all are different. I think that they have been making stock bikes blacked out over the last few years to imitate those of us who have been doing it for years so a compliment in a way.

I haven't changed to black bars or levers or sprayed the headlight rim or rims of the dials. There is a shinny rad cover & of cause the engine fin edges & bottom of the forks so there is my contrast  :153:

I had Delkevic send them off & coat them before they were delivered to me.
