For the exhaust, loud can be fun, but it could get old depending on how much you ride and/or your situation.

That said, I have a Two Brothers. It makes me grin.

Nice bike you got there. I agree that, if you had a couple hundred bucks, it's better spent on rider instruction than on farkles.

I have a two brothers s1r slip on on my 2012 and I have no complaints. It has a nice low sound and is loud but I don't find it too obnoxious (this is just my opinion haha). Also nice bike!

Also have Two Brothers full exhaust on my 07. Thing sounds like a freight chain and instantly puts a shit eating grin on my face. I put a 10 dB silencer on it when I'm putting around Annapolis so I dont wake up my neighbors when I leave for base and take it off when headed towards the track.

Welcome, and do what makes you happy.

FYI white is the absolute worst color when it comes to motorcycle rims as they will NEVER be clean. Ever.

Do yourself a favor and use a high quality polymer wax on your rims before you mount them on the bike. It will make cleanup down the road a lot easier.

Tell your boyfriend to hook us up with some powdercoating. I bet a lotta people on here would be interested.

Anyway, that bike looks like it has too much white going on in the center area. I think a pink Ninja or Kawasaki sticker on the tank would match well with the pink wheels.

Yeah I know, that's why white never even crossed my mind. Always hear people complaining about them never being clean. And thanks for the suggestion I'll definitely do that

Well I see you're in Cali and we're in NJ lol so shipping might automatically put his price over one of your local shops but sure if ya have any questions for him just let me know

I run a window tinting & vehicle wrap business so I'm playing around with some pink vinyl to drop over all the green accents. I'm thinking all the white with just the subtle small pink accents will be enough with how bright the wheels are going to be. But who knows, I'll be playing around with it more once I see what the wheels look like on it

I never understood the people that powder coat their wheels white. They're only going to be white until they get put on the bike, then it's game over and look like crap.

But then again I don't like white on cars and bikes in general, not just wheels lol

Well, they do stay white longer than youd think. I did mine with spray paint and even when they get dirty it still looks white. If u hit it with some cleaning sprays and hit it with some high pressure water it cleans up pretty good.

Yeah but I don't like spending time cleaning my wheels. I clean them about twice a year at best. And the fronts always have a bunch of brake dust, and the rears a bunch of rubber beads from the tire stuck to them, plus all the glue residue from wheel weights and tape.
