Black powder coated with a polished lip would look sweet. I have the CRG barends on my bike and yea they do kinda look funky but I got used to them and they work awesome. Much better loooking then the screw in mirrors that Buells come withlol, naw... i'm thinking about doing something with the wheels... either new one's or painting these black, and maybe a solo seat cowl. i'm in the process of looking for mirrors... it came with some bar ends, but i'm not too crazy about them. the crappy thing about the 599 is that it comes with screw in type handlebar mount mirrors, not bolt in type fairing mount, so my options are minimal. i'd like to rig up some newer cbr or ninja mirrors, but i haven't figured that out yet.. any ideas?
aside from that, it's regular maintenance and seeing if i can get 100k miles out of her... 95k to go!!
can you give me some more details on this?? i'm having a hell of a time finding parts for this bike.(swingarm swap -- RR series. & aftermarket rearsets).
Thats the best application I've seen of those FMF pipes. They look great. how do they sound???
great bike man! :honda: :metal:

yep, i know.... i was looking around and i'm thinking the mirrors off a new ducati monster might work... they're the look i'm going for and they're screw in mount.The mirrors from the CBR or Ninja mount to a full fairing and putting them on your bike might not work out too well..
yep, the bike came with those, and i'm not liking them.. i don't like how they stick out past the handlebars.. i want something that doesn't widen the bike.. something like on the duc i posted...ebay, I would just do CRG barend mirrors.
well, this is my first bike and when i first got it i took the mirrors off right away... i kept finding myself looking behind me, so i decided to put them back on. i still turn my head to see behind me 90% of the time, but now i can just give a quick glance down to see if there is anything behind me.Couple people have the small round mirrors mounted like you have them. Dunno how they like them though.
I personally don't use mirrors... they just trick you into thinking there's nothing behind you
