Dude! That looks amazing! The only left to murder out is the back foot pegs for the passenger. Are those available in black?

Your bike is eff'ing sweet!

Thanks for the compliments. I am long from done but gotta close the wallet for a while. I think I could probably powder coat the passenger pegs. Suppose I should look into that.

Or you could just remove them and save yourself some cash I can't imagine who in their right mind would want to ride back there anyway.
Bike's lookin' good, I've ordered some red pieces for mine to offset a little of the black. However the wife closed my wallet until further notice so that's all I'll have for awhile (she thinks we need to build a house for some reason ha ha).

I've got sliders on both axles and under the fairings. I actually have to keep the pegs because my girl loves riding with me any chance I let her!

So far no probs with it, after 4 track days.
Other parts: Oehlins steering damper, Pazzos and SpeedyMoto sliders (under the body and fork).
In my opinion, spending money for a full exhaust system is not worth the money.
OK it looks sweet, but do you really gain of usable hp and less wheight?

so what does shortening the muffler do?

Shortening the muffler actually shortens the muffler. The 848 years previous had a muffler that was 3" shorter than the 2011 848 EVO. People are just cutting them to make them more aesthetically pleasing.

Is that a Red Bell Star helmet with the photochromic face shield by chance?!

I do love the matte black Bell Star helmet.

Very observant of you Gouda! I also love the matte black bell star. Got one for my girl! It's on the back peg if you didnt notice.
