Looks sweet but yet undecided whether the onza bar ends add to it or spoil it...a sneak pic of the "naked" bars and stem, although very hard to capture the colour and the tonal difference between the stem and bars is berely noticeable in the flesh. I was so worried about damaging the new finish as I slid the new bars in. Lots of fairy liquid and a screwdriver wrapped in a rag between the stem/bar clamp (with bolt removed), to open it up a bit! Worked a treat!

Why not.... leave the levers/shifters off for now then try just grips and bar ends..see over a few days wether it grabs you. Then try just grips with no bar ends and again a few days of staring at it. This way you won't get multiple marks from moving the shifters/levers as you move things around.

Its all assembled with sti's grips and bar ends on...looking again today I kinda like them but wonder if I should have gone for stubbies rather than Lbends...

Toe-Clips and bar-ends go together, you can't have one without the other!

But hopefully they don't stand out too much? Could ruin an otherwise "factory" look. Are they pink too? :lol:

Right well a couple of pictures to show where I'm at! Still needs the smoke and some handlebar stops but pretty much as it will look finished. Opinions on the barends appreciated,

- No barends?
- Shorter stubby barends?
- Or fine as they are!

When the weather is good I'll take some better pics its all a bit grey and dismal here!
