Here are a few pics to illustrate how they look from 3/4 and front view.

I reduced the height of my T100 by 20 mm by putting shorter hagon shocks on back, and raising the front forks thru the yokes (may shorten the spacer later). I like it much better, and ground clearance in turns hasn't been a problem. Also, with my HJC full-faced helmet, I removed the small air scoops in front of the two vents on top of the helmet, and the turbulence noise was reduced drastically (guessing by 75%). The vents were only held on with a caulk type glue.

The only reason I went with that set up was so I could run clip-ons. I ditched the clip-ons a while ago and finally got around to replacing the headlight bracket. If I'm not running clip-ons, I think the stock set up looks much better.

Have you seen the headlight brackets that D9 made by filling and smoothing out the stock ones? Looks very nice and clean indeed.

Are your Bellacorse brackets powder coated bluesman?
Hard to tell but to me they looked good. Also, how was the quality, finish?. They sure are less expensive than others available.
Thanks,

Ordered a nice new shiny set of stainless spokes and nipples to replace the originals which look awful (corrosion).
