Opinions? I think both ends are a big update in appearance. Eventually I plan on some driving lights or running lights to fill in the stock turn signal holes. I couldn’t stand the bent beak look any more. I’m also planning a real skid plate, Lexx exhaust and LiFePo battery when the stocker dies and my appearance plus minor weight loss program will be pretty much done.

Channeling a Generation 1 fender?

Actually KX450F and I’m channeling my inner Eli Tomac. Feels like 25hp more and I’m clearing 120ft triples

Front looks good IMO...rear I'm a bit less sure on.

2 cents,

Yeah that’s kind of my feeling too. I think the rear is an improvement over stock and it certainly looks better in person than pictures but it isn’t quite was I envisioned. For under $80 though I still think it was worth it.

I like the back. What are you doing for lights?
