completely blacked out bikes are just not my cup of tea. It says "oh I don't know how to sort this out and I'm gonna paint the whole thing black"
I think it looks great, the headlight buckets, go with the top triple, flows with the exhaust.

yeah, i agree that the all black can get boring, but i think his bike would look better if he just finished it and went all out. stuff hes already changed to black: handle bars, bar risers, exhaust cans, rearsets, sliders, front/rear reservoirs, levers, and he got the billet black grips.

thats why, to me, its looks like he started the blackout process, but just stopped 3 pieces short (headers, top clamp, and buckets) of completing it.

thanks for all the comments and opinions, i read and think about every single one of them , thanks a lot guys

i am actually not a fan of chrome, but i like the chrome round headlights of this bike , i think they are the soul of this bike, and my intention was not to leave it all black, i dont like all all all black, the bike just fades away, and i left the exhaust heat shield to have something to go whit the headlights just like noobinacan said, he got my thing and intention all the way.

as for the the top yoke, i quite like the look of the worked and brushed finish and kind of goes well whit the contrast of the bars and risers, i dont think it will look bad in black, i just dont like of many powdercoted parts,i think they kind of look cheap in the final result.

the nut cover for the back wheel, now thats a thing that makes me think about it, i like seeing the big nut, kind of gives a sport look, but i admit i like the rizoma cover but its so expensive for a simple nut cover errrrr is there any other nut cover besides rizoma for the s3?

need to take urgent pictures of the other side of the bike whit the matching front/back suspension gas reservoirs and silicone samco sport black hoses

There is the OEM Triumph, that looks like a button off a clown's jacket / miniature ashtray for kids.

I reckon the nut looks much better than any of the coverups.

I like the nut too. You could always do an axle slider back there. I would recommend doing some fork sliders, especially to protect those bad ass forks!!! My forks got a little scratched in a low speed crash with a car over a year ago. If I had sliders there would have been unscathed.

I like the look of matching front and rear axle sliders. I only wish speedymoto made them for our bikes.

+1 on axle sliders front and rear.

And, ahem... I've got SpeedyMoto axle sliders on my 2012 S3R. Check their website again - they've come out with some farkels for Triumph.

PS: Sweet suspension customization. I like the chrome domes. Miss them on my 2012 S3R.

have to investigate some sliders for front and back, but for the front have to buy some and customize it to fit my custom front axle

here is a pic from today from the other side of the bike, its full of dirt from nearby construction site
i also like this side, matching gas reservoirs and samco hoses, steering damper this was the side i had a litle accident some time ago but i was able to restore it to perfect
