Default Back in Black!-Pics

So had my motor apart putting in High compression pistons and valve springs this last week and took the opportunity to finish blacking out the motor and oil lines. Now I am just waiting for my speedstar heat shield and can to come back from the ceramic coaters. I also powder coated the forward control brackets, a set of Yamaha billet brake pedal and shifter and then fitted Roland Sands Design tips to the levers.

will update with more pics when the exhaust gets back.

Thanks for the comments guys, yeah dinggus, the blue is some LEDs I have mounted on the frame rails, it's interesting to see how much less they reflect now that the valve covers are no longer chrome
