Why are your headers so shiny? Ceramic coating or the bike is still very new?

Yep, its a Corbin. Very happy in every way with it except it is wider (than stock) at the nose area making it so I am not flat-footed at a stop. I am 6'1" with a 34" inseam and while I'm not on my tip-toes, I'm still not flat footed.

The seating area is perfect for me though and I read about someone who tried to trim the width of the nose some and found it reduced the comfort of the seat.

Lastly-----it's painted black alright.

It is easier to host them on a hosting site, and link them here.

I use www.photobucket.com, and it is free. Or, the owner of this site also owns www.smugmug.com , and though it is a pay site, it is very user friendly, and a quality site.

my gs Since I suck at posting pics, I'll just give alist of stuff I did to the bike... Iwanted aLittle yellow to keep the ohlins company, thus the calipers(wich wound up being very expensive with the dealer brake bleed) Corbin seat with gerbing dual heat controller mounted in place of the switch( one side works the seat the other the clothing). K-40 2000 Built in radar detector. The on-off/volume knob is mounted where the front power outlet would go so if I ever took out the radar I could put a power outlet in the hole I made a support for the 6'' plus cee baily shield because it flapped around bad on highway with truck turbulance and all. then made a bracket to mount the streetpilot on above the gauges. then I made piece out of plastic to fit bettween the gauges and the gps to make it all look like a little dash. I put a thermometer from aerostitch in it and the led's for the radar detector. I bought the bigmak hingeing tankbag mount from cycle gadgets wich is avery cool invention that lets the bag just flip up when you get gas. but I didn't like the way the tankbag they sell for it fit. It kind of sit up above the tank.I wanted abag that was a little more form fitting to the tank. So I Got a marsee 15 litre teardrop bag (wich matched the tailbag anyway...(anal) Then I made an aluminium pan that was cup shaped to the exact shape of the top of the gas tank. I atatched it to the hingeing mount then rivited the bag to it. the result is anice form fitting bag that sits about 3/8'' above the tank but doesnt touch anywhere. It removes with a 5'' long pin with a hole in the end for a small hitch pin (as the hinge pin). I also made pieces that mount to the front top valve cover bolts. they hold my legs on when I lay them on the cylinders for a rest on the highway. I shaped them like snakes for a goof( Made out of 3/8'' steel rod). Ceramic coated remus header (I'll get the titanium can when they have a power commander ready....don't want it to lean).Wunderlich aluminium skid plate, rear turn signal stalks in front with clear lenses,fastway pegs,motorad rear hugger(I get a lot of spray on the tailbag with the stock crap catcher removed) Might try the tt hugger and put the catcher back. Painted the bike black and the and the aluminium side panels glossy metalic silver.24000 miles in nine months.Best bike I ever had and I really liked my FJR
