Love the look of the carbon fiber yoshi pipe. Wish there were more real carbon fiber things for these.

Just got my wife's black CBR delivered tonight. I had told her that I wanted to swap the silver parts on my Red/Silver CBR for the black ones on hers. One look at the all black bike and she was all "I want more of it black, not more of it silver. I'm not swapping parts" Wouldn't be surprised if she asked me about powder coating soon.

Your bike looks great! Now get out there and ride it!

Is she excited her bike finally arrived? She's had to wait awhile. I'm completely supportive of her all black theme. Much more versatile with matching gear etc lol Sorry your plan of swapping plastics has gone awray ha ha (but then you DID hide her gulf clubs:D)

I agree. The 250 is such a smart looking bike so I would rather keep it simple and classy. I like the carbon fiber look but not much product to choose from

Very excited, except, due to weather and scheduling, she probably won't get to ride until next week sometime. Yes, she's had to wait. With the weather being so good so early, there was a bbacklog of bikes coming out of storage.

Not too worried about the plastics because, as it turns out, the guy who sold us the bikes bought a black CBR250r for himself and wants to make his black/silver, and obviously, mine would then be red/black. The plus side of this deal is that I think we'll make the swap at the dealer, but for free. (probably more than you wanted to know about this. LOL)

Glad you shared:D Seems it's turning out you get your plastics after all. Everyones happy. Red/black theme is much better than red/silver. Vivid. Keep me posted how your wife does?? Both of you must be looking forward to riding together. Cool!

If you're asking for a printout report I have'nt got one at this point. The exhaust system was installed last summer around june. I noticed immediately a much smoother and responsive throttle which IMO was a big improvement pre-exhaust change. Also, I have noticed increased torque on the low to mid-range and in my case close to the top end as well. Mind you, I do not tend to ride continuously at 150kph. I feel the bike is more snappy, much lighter as the stock exhaust was a pig at 30lbs, and frankly, the Yosh is easier on the eyes. The Bazzaz IMO is doing its job. But, honestly, I'm not a gear head. :cool:
