Changed handlebars to laow full throttle bars and painted the aluminum heat shield for the muffler and muffler pipe. The low bars cost $108 with discount and the ride has made a world of a difference for me. I feel more in control of the bike in quick turns and provides better handling. It also gives it a bit more sportier look with the black coating and the tubes are a little beefier.

Here are some before and after pics so you guys can compare the muffler paint job.

It was just a spur of the moment project. The aluminum reminded me too much of soda cans. I am much happier with the darker look.

I really like the black but also like the original look strangely enough. Don't know what to choose here. I think if the bike would be even more blacked out it would come more to its right.

Anyway, great job! :):thumbsup: Did you use Plasti dip, can it stand the temperatures?

Thanks Chris. It's pretty easy. Just used high temp rust oleum automotive paint. Hope it has a pretty durable coverage. I'll update if it's not good.

Damn, I'm sold more money for me to spend. I've been debating changing the bars to the full throttle since before I bought the bike.

Im going to fit lower black bars this weekend motocross style Renthals... now off to youtube to find some videos on shortening the cables... imo the "retro loop" has to go!

Did you end up changing the cables bigpish13? I really dig the look. I don't know how well that would look with my Dart flyscreen though.

Looks fine, you dont even have to shorten anyhing, you may have to just swivel the Brake line so as not to come in contact with the Screen.
