This is my attempt at improving the look of the swingarms. It's a carbon fiber look vinyl decal. At $15 it's hard to beat. The CF goes well with the '05 silver (see gas cap and tank protector). Let me know what ya think.

That looks alright, actually. Where did you find it? Link?

Damn that looks good. That could be one of the $1 mods, with a little creativity and time. I think I'll go get a sheet of reflective vinyl and cut my own. It'll have to be thicker stripes (last one 1cm), but it should work.

Ordered the 6in x 17in pair and had them cut it to 2 5/16" x 17 1/4". Probably should have ordered them larger and cut to fit myself. Also told them to square off the ends. I think they just squared everything off but it still has a very slight angle. Total price $35 + Shipping but (after having to call back and explain math to them) they adjusted the price to $15. The CF cost 50% extra or it would have been $10.

This place claims to have a more realistic CF look but to have the graphic made would cost almost $100.

I was messing around with my chain tensioner nuts last night and discovered that the end of the swing arm comes off (it's just a cap). My mind got to wandering and wondering about making a new end to round it off more. The problem is that I don't think the screw is long enough.

I ordered the 6in x 17in pair and had it custom made at 2 5/16" x 17 1/4" and the ends squared off. Probably should have made it larger and cut it to fit myself. It looks like they squared all of it when they squared the ends. It cost $35 then they adjusted the price to $15 + shipping. I did have to call them back to remind them to adjust the price and teach them math. The CF cost 50% extra or else it would have been $10.

GREAT GRAPHIC !!!

I have never liked the look of the utilitarian boxed swing arm. You have inspired me. I got to do something now.
