Default dull cbr1000rr :(

So I've realized my bike looks a little dull or at least I think it does so I was wondering if I could get some tips or advice on what I should do it make it a little better. When people walk by my bike I want them to say " that's a clean a*# bike " ha

This is a picture of my bike below

not a bad looking bike by any means. Maybe some chrome additions if you like that kinda stuff and you like polishing it ALOT. Maybe some CF additions, decals? look into polishing your wheel lips. LOOKS great and really sets the bike off. Maybe a painted seat cowl and get rid of the foot pegs unless you like riders. Grips, bar ends, levers, frame sliders and swing arm sliders. well thats all i got, a little sparatic but hey hope this helps.

Just wash it. Its already clean. Some times people add to much stuff to it and it comes out worse than a guy getting happy with decals on a honda civic

a real cheap easy thing to do that makes a huge difference IMO is to have all the pegs/silver stuff powdercoated black.
also i cant tell from the pic but putting a rear seat cowl on it would b a good idea

Ah, just put some decals on it.

Looks great to me; I think you just too used to looking at it. There's a saying "familiarity breeds contempt".
