At this point the primary customizing I want to do to my bike ('03 silver F4i), is:

1) Flushmount signals (I like Gregg's custom)
2) Carbon rear wheel hugger el natural
3) Windscreen replacement (ZG Double bubble in dark smoke is in the lead for now)
4) Mesh vent "fills", as I asked about in a previously thread, painted to match the paint scheme.
5) New rims (chrome on silver looks like ass, so some sort of alloy)
6) New undertail

Which brings me to my topic. Allmost all the 'tails I see are of the same design, the "double barrel shotgun" style. Excuse the reference :D Anyway, the only one I've found that's different, and I like it quite a bit BTW though higher $$ than I want to spend, is on ebay at this link

Does anybody know of any others that are different from the typical two light styled?

I'd also take any suggestions for something different from the typical DB from ZG along with any websites for decent looking rims. I'm not brand specific for either, just want something that will look pretty good and separate my bike from the rest. Naturally, I'm not going to be able to go out and do this all at once, at least not on my budget, so cost effective products are even better.

Well, if you want to keep your stock taillight and have minimal cutting, then this style http://www.exoticsportbike.com/cbr_600_f4i6.htm should suit your requirement.

Hmmm....all chrome on silver looks like ass, eh? :D I dunno....depends on your point of view. This is what your bike might look like all chromed out but with the stock colors http://pub29.bravenet.com/photocenter/album.php?img=62643&usernum=2433439469

What might all that chrome cost you? How's $3,300 move you? And that's with every nut and bolt.


Custom rims will cost you more...say about $300 - $600 per wheel, and if you're feeling randy, some custom rotors will definitely set you apart from everyone else.

And here's a little something if you're tired of scuffing your non-racing boots when riding http://www.gstraps.com/

Good luck and don't forget to post pics of your mods!

Yeah, I forgot to mention that I've seen those undertails also. I do like them better than the dual hole undertails though. As for chrome on silver, I've gotta stick to my guns, it just doesn't do it for me. I think the only way I'd have chrome on a sportbike is if it was black, or possible some other darker color.

Thanks for the link to the rims. I'll have to go through it closely and see what there is. The pricing would have to be at or near the $300 mark per rim, or else it will start to get beyond my budget.

I'll try to get some pics as my bike progresses, although it'll take some time for me to afford all the mods. I still have to finish paying off my bike!
