Hope she isn't like my gf. She likes the before pic, plus headlight. I have seen headlight covers on here somewhere, is that what it is or did you spray it. Nightshades has a product for tailights, spray it on, more coats for darker.

The wheels are powdercoated by a good friend of mine and as for the headlight I contacted Power Form Pro. I found them in the product reviews section and they have a great product it is actually held in place with velcro so I can take it off for night rides. Believe it or not the cover does not really dim the headlight to much. I have a friend with a 400ex and he painted his now he has no lights it will shine through just enough to be able to spot him at night but he can't see a thing.

Sadly she is like your girlfriend tasteless. No offense but why do they love plain everything. My girl is gonna have a fit when she see's the gray hood is gone. I bought her a new helmet and goggles to distract her from it lol.

lookin sweet! i knew the headlight cover would catch on i think its one of my favorite cosmedic mods ive done.
another nice easy look is to paint the hubs, red would really pop with the blk rims.

I hate painting things on my ATV's cause it never seems to hold up and I can never find good durable paint.

Looks good. Tell your girl to hang on. That red seat will add 5-10 more ponies!!!!!
I think your right the first time I rode it with the new seat I almost slipped off. It is way slippery I wish I could have gotten the gripper in red.

Seeing as it is for my girl. I am working a little backwards on this one. Cosmetics came first to get her on board. Now I can start getting approval to spend the big money on performance.:hey:
