    Haha cheers buddy, can’t believe the bike had been up for sale for a few weeks too and I was looking for a Big Bang when I seen this just down the road!
    It has to be a £7-7500 bike from what I’ve seen advertised so not sure why it didn’t go straight away, I won’t be selling it though it’s for life this one or at least a few years until I’ve done every mod I can and get bored

    Thanks pal I will google them now as I’m about to start hunting carbon bits, just can’t decide whether to go normal carbon or the carbon weave look!

    You can get a decent set of Chinese fairings for the same scheme. But for the 12-16 they only did that colour OEM in the USA, muggins here got the oem fairings

    That’s right pal, first thing I did when I went and looked at was pull the tail cover off an check inside the fairings for The Honda logo as whenever I see a bike that’s not standard oem colour scheme I think its had a bump and been on its side so had fairings or repainted!!!
    After googling it though too the guy wasn’t lying when he said Honda notttingham had 5 done in the same colour scheme

    Thanks for the info. Mine is a 13, so will have look about. Don't really want to go down the Chinese route.

    Haha I can see it pal everytime I look at it I need more carbon bits!!
    This rear hugger came this morning, paid £40 delivered for it so I’m chuffed with that.
    Need a chain guard now then I just want the tank side fairings, air intake ducts at the front and the single vertical upright trims in the side fairings but i may try wrapping those with some of that gloss 7d wrap and if looks crap I’ll rip it off!!
