I recently changed sprokets (Vortex -1,+2). I wanted my bike to look a little different, so I changed a few things. Since I was changing the sprokets anyway, I decided to go with the blue 525 chain, Pazzo shorty levers w/blue, 1" bar-ends, Lockhart blue rear spools, pro-tek front and rear blue reservior caps, dark smoke rear signals, Puig screen, and a few simple decals.

Do you think the blue chain is lame or not?

I don't mind the chain.. I would have went with gold everything on black, personally.

The chain is fine being blue.. I think the blue spools make it look cheap though.

[:Stupid] I was actually thinking of doing some things blue once I paint mines, but not anymore

I do think the gold would have looked better, especially since so much is already gold.

I'd like some better quality pictures... :) You just need to fiddle with your settings a bit so they aren't blurry.

I don't want my bike to look gay!! That's why I took pics and put them on here for your opinions. I do want my bike to look a little different from other ZX-10s; I agree that gold may have looked better, but most people would use black/gold and this is why I wanted to try black/gold/blue.

I will post a few clearer pics w/o the blue spools. I agree they look lame.

i like the idea that you bike is different, maybe a little off in colors but it might look better in person, but i do think its better than everyone elses because EVERYONE has the akrapovics and a tail cowl and shit, so in my view its better!!

I think it is cool, it is a personal thing also called customizing it to you. I myself have a lime green 06 with andoized purple bolts on it and little other things. I used to race for Auburn back in the days of BMX, they gave me a lime green Auburn and put the orignal black widow pdeals on it that had purple centers, from there on I have dug the combo. It would have been gay to put blue this then green that and red this.

I say make it unique to your likes. When your bike is parked in a sea of bikes and someone walks by, they will know THAT one is yours without question. That's what I call personalizing a bike.[^]

Don't take anyones comments here to heart... everyones opinions is different, I'm not one for anodized pieces (unless it wheels/exhaust) but thats more less because I know it tends to fade/wear quickly.

if you don't like the blue pieces you can still save them with a flat black rattle can. just a thought

EDIT: Love your gold wheels BTW!!

Unfortunately, the 'pro-tek' blue brake fluid caps were slowly leaking fluid; I guess they weren't made for the zx-10. I took them off the other day and put the black ones back on the bike. This is the second time I purchased stuff from "parts411" and the parts didn't fit right.

I also removed the blue spools, so now the bike just has the blue chain and the blue in the Pazzo levers. I'll post a newer pic as soon as weather permits.

i really like what u done, you should customise your bike how you want to, changing most stock parts is a good way to go, like you've already started to do, yes i do have a small critique on your bike, and that would be the decals, buts thats only because im a minimalist when it comes to decals, or none at all is better, but thats my opinion, anyways, leave the blue on, and yes i may be biased as i ride a candy plasma blue 636, Rob
