if you notice mine, the part where your;s is silver, dude painted it blue to match the rest of the fairings, and put the factory decals back on

he also painted the inner finders blue and around the inst. bezel vs black

he also painted the pass rearsets and ft area blue too.

subtle stuff.

prolly but when your on long trips and your light comes on and you see a gas station, it's a good thing to stop and fuel up.....

i was out way past san ant. on the way to CA on the VFR and wanted to "eek" it.......had me scared for my life as i was out in BFE w/ a fuel light on..
