Just a couple changes to my 650R

So here's what I have so far. Not much, but hey I'm a college student on a budget:

Zero Gravity short windscreen - dark smoke
Pro Grip 724 grips
Pro Grip Tank protector
CA smoke integrated tail light
custom fender eliminator
small things like spike bar ends and windscreen bolts

I'm pretty happy with the way everything turned out. The new windscreen doesnt seem to affect wind turbulence very much over the stock one, and the new grips feel SO MUCH better on my hands. The rest is just cosmetic stuff. My dad and I made our own bracket for the license plate and put on the license plate bolts with the LEDs built in. It's not that bright, hopefully cops don't give me a hard time about it. It feels so nice to have those ugly turn signals gone.

Where did you hide the Inspection Sticker? Your bike looks great.

What inspection sticker? Ha, jk. Since the sticker was already stuck onto the plastic fender, I just cut around it. Then I stuck some velcro on it and put in underneath the tail on the back of my battery box. If you are directly behind the bike looking at it you can see the sticker.
