I like pre-load adjusters! Looks pretty good!

Why put on Bridgestone decals when you have Dunlop tires? It's your moto but that doesn't make sense to me.

I'm sorry, but that's gaudy. Too many stickers. I could see one Kawasaki logo above one headlight, but not both. And the swing arm is cluttered. The stickers angled on the lower fairings can look tasteful if they all sit parallel to one another, but you have them just stuck kind of randomly.

Besides all that, you have a bone stock bike with racing stickers. Think about that one. I hate to sound like I'm bashing, that's not how I want to come off, but I'm being honest. I do like the levers though. Preload adjusters are nice, but how often do you need to make an adjustment on the fly? Never.

I you like it, then that's fine. I just think you went overboard.

That's some shaky logic. Marlboro doesn't make car parts. If you were sponsored by one company, you certainly wouldn't put their competitor's product on the car. Whatever though, I doubt most people would notice and you're putting some BT's on soon anyhow. Either way, not really my style. I'm more of "take all the stickers off" kinda guy. They seem to be applied well though, they're centered and positioned well. And I do kind of like the Kawasaki "eyebrows" over the headlights. If you like it, that's what matters.

Sponsors MOTORCYCLE OR CAR PARTS are on the bike/car. You're not going to see anyone with Bridgestone stickers running Dunlops. No RK stickers on a bike with an EK chain, no Brembo stickers on a bike running Accossato parts. No Galfer stickers on a bike running EBC rotors and pads and Goodridge brake lines. You get the idea.

I have to say, those decals are freaking terrible. They have no place on a street bike in the first place in my opinion, but yours are especially bad because half of them aren't even on the bike.

Where's your Magneti Marelli ECU? I see no Brembo bits? Do you use Elf AND Fuchs oils?

What's brilliant is that you have an RK AND a DID sticker on the bike.

Little harsh... but true. As a racer you get paid to have stickers on your bike. But you gotta win while using the parts you have stickers for.

Also, I've crashed with those R&G protectors, they aren't worth much.

Your a mouthy fucker , you see loads of bikes on the streets with race rep paint jobs, decals fitted etc, as for the bit about i have none of those fitted i think its irrelevant it was the overall look i was going for at some point various bits of the bikes will be upgraded and then those manufacturers will replace the decals which are already applied to the bike, but to be honest i think it looks good and i have a achieved the race look i was trying to achieve

And you're* a wannabe.

I see a lot of riced out bullshit Civics with the same shit, doesn't make it cool, right, or good looking. It's something posers and tryhards do. The fact that you have none of those parts is completely relevant because you have none of those parts.
