Nice. Really cleaned up the rear without those passenger pegs.

Just FYI - Don't purchase the "Red" ASV levers. They don't match anywhere close to CBR red, as they are pretty much magenta. I should know, I have them.

Got myself the black levers, figured the other colors wouldn't really match the tri color.

did you add the rear seat cowl or did that come with the bike when you bought it?

Previously owner had it already. I thought of replacing the vinyl for the pillion seat to white, but felt like the CF seat cowl still looks better.

**UPDATE**

Added Stomp Grips




Added SD-R adjustable levers


Yoshi rearset bracket
PSR SBK footpegs


Yay or nay? The logo has a slight glow in the night.




Next to come: powder coat rims to anthracite and italia tri-color rim tapes
Thinking of possibly covering the red decals and the front red fender into carbon vinyl too.

nyxcnic; Man, allow me to say, that your bike, looks awesome. Nicely done, from a fellow Tri Color owner. Are these bikes fun to mod and change, or what? They just respond so well to customizing. I love mine. Yours has caught my eye, I plan to make a few more changes to mine, as well. If I may, I'd like to respectfully offer some opinions, on your bike. Please take them as you like, I mean them in utmost respect. Have you considered painting your front indicators white? I did mine, and I like the way they blend in now. You may be considering flush mounts, and I may do those as well, eventually. The small change of turning the black part white, really made mine look better. Kinda goes along with the white lower fairing. I, like you, also deleted the rear pegs, I saw no use for them whatsoever. I am fascinated with rear seat cowl covers, also. I am undecided, so far. Are you happy with the color of yours, and have you considered alternate colors, such as blue or white? The last and final thing, I have for your bike, is the carbon fiber look cover or decal below the windscreen. You did ask about it, and as for me, I don't like it. No particular reason other than the obvious, I just don't like the look; I don't believe it fits. That being said, if you like it, then bravo, from me. Far be it from me, to decide what's best for another's bike. You have done a fabulous job, on a fabulous motorcycle. I'm sure you enjoy it, just like I do. I actually get a smug satisfaction, riding my bike, that I can't say Ive had with my other bikes, quite as much. It's not the "Sigh..... It's nice, but it's only a 250", feeling: It's more like, "Hells yeah, And this badass little sweetheart that I zip around on like a fly, is just a 250!" I love mine. And for me, the Tri was the only choice. The others are just fine, the guys that have them probably feel like I do about mine, but my dealer had them all: A Repsol, (I do not like those at all) a couple black ones, and one red one, and two Tri Colors. I told the salesman on the phone, before I left out for the ride to the dealership, that he better still have my Tri Color there, when I get there, or they be no sale. Of course, it was there, until I rode it home. Nice bike, man.

2012 CBR250R Tri Color
DIY Fender delete, with integrated rear indicators
FMF custom exhaust
13T front sprocket
A few custom painted bits
More to come.....
CRASHED! 9-14-14
RIP.... Total loss
