    I think they're a wise investment, especially for road use. I have an R & G (plain black) on mine, which the previous owner had installed. Having said that, though, there are a couple of dodgy roads around my way - thereby justifying its use.

    Yeah, easy as. Just interlocking rubber tiles.

    I'd get one if I were you Paul. I've got the r&g one, they're not expensive & will save you a lot of money if your radiator gets damaged. It's one of the cheaper mods I always put on.

    It was either on here or a Fireblade Facebook page I read about someone picking up their brand new blade and holing the radiator in the first 17miles of ownership. Wasn’t covered by warranty obviously and he/she was left with a ridiculous bill, although the dealership did supply at cost and didn’t charge for labour if I remember correctly. It was still around £500 I believe, maybe more, plus the inconvenience etc.

    I know what I’d rather do.

    That's stiff. You'd be bloody spewin' wouldn't you.

    (For me, the rad wouldn't be my worry ; it'd be cleaning all the coolant and crap from the undercarriage and from the inner fairings :rolleyes:.)

    What an excellent way to highlight a black bike - take the shot in the snow!

    Black is my second-favourite colour (shiny not matte, because there's too much wind resistance on matte finish;)) I am also a lover of black wheels, but in your case the gold wheels brings life to the bike. The 'deleted' pillion pegs also give a clean look.
