Have you not noticed that my Gixxer is exactly the same way?

When was this? I usually don't care about car audio too much. I'm just looking for a cd player for my jetta and that's it.

Indeed. That's why I mentioned the smoked lights.

Must have been someone else, then. Maybe Kanwisch. My PMs were cleared, so I can't even go back and look. Normally I don't forget anything like that. Must be old age.

BTW, I like the smoked marker lights. Definitely a consideration, but can you do that to a factory lens without losing projection that will effect safety?

What about going with pigspotters to conform with the law, and a camera system so you can actually see? That would clean it up a lot.

Sure... just step up the bulb size a bit to compensate. Not that big of a deal.

Thought about it, but they just don't really look as good as stock, IMO. I'm not a fan.

Neither am I , just thought the streamlining might be better than what you've got. The mirrors on the Duc are useless, and the Gixxer's aren't far from it.

I take that back. The ones on the Duc are 2 steps below useless, because not only can you not see out of them without contorting your arms in some strange manner, but when making tight turns at slow speed, the knuckles on my gloves prevent me from turning the bars completely because the mirror gets in the way.


In other news, I am seriously considering going with the Mono subframe/plastics. That might throw a wrench into the original LED project we've been talking about.
