    It is amazing how a little color in places can totally change what it looks like.

    Not a great before picture, but I think it is apparent.

    You're correct about how much difference this makes - the silver cap looks MUCH better on the black bike......to me. :018:
    Thanks for sharing.

    That actually is a tinted screen from Cee Bailey's.  However, it is the DOT legal tint so it is only a shade below clear.

    I do agree, more tint, but on those rare occasions that I look through it could be problematic  :002:

    Lol.....fortunately you won't see too much silver on my bike.  Handlebars, kickstand, foot brake, foot gear lever and drivers/ passengers footpegs.....ALL BLACK :002:

    Gotta work on those silver screw/ bolt heads in the cockpit area today!

    I don't think the handlebar clutch and brake lever comes apart. However, don't fearů New brake and clutch levers are being shipped and guess what? They are black :-)
