Default Soon to be CARBON FIBER fireblade!!!

I am going to turn my 08 Red/Black Fireblade into a carbon fiber machine.

I currently have the R77 Yoshi slip-on w/ carbon muffler & end cap along with the Tekarbon front fender, rear hugger, chain guard cover and tank side panels.

Parts planned:
Ilmberger
CF alternator cover - $158
CF clutch cover - $173
CF frame cover (L) - $173
CF frame cover (R) - $173
CF swingarm cover (L) - $144
CF swingarm cover (R) - $144

TEKARBON
cf heel protectors - $50
cf tank cover - $300
cf front fairing - $220
cf large side fairings - $500
cf lower side fairings - $310
cf rear under panel - $70
cf tail fairing - $180
cf belly pan - $300

Does anyone know any other CF parts I might be missing? I know of the windscreen made by a few different companies but I'm not sure I wanna go with a CF windscreen, yet. I think my idea is fairly original as I have no seen any other bikes on forums, or locally, that have done it ALL in carbon fiber. The bike will also have red accents to compliment the carbon fiber such as red levers, red valve stems, red SS lines, red rear caliper bracket, etc. If anyone has any tips or links for RED LED light systems, I would like some input on that as well.

This is NOT just a cosmetic bike either, as the slip-on is being swapped for a full system and the bike has a PCIII, ZBOMB, HM Lite Quickshifter, HRC 1/6 throttle kit, -1 front sprocket and race filter. Combining the go-fast goodies with Spider Grips, Energy Seat from Honda, and Vortex rear sets for some comfort factors.

Look forward to keeping this thread updated with pics as it comes along.

just found some additional pieces.

DMV Carbon handlebar
CF frame sliders
CF rear cowl
CF dash infills
CF fork preload adjusters
CF sprocket cover
CF brake master cover
CF frame protectors

still searching for more but I think I've nailed everything possibly interchangeable into CF, aside from wheels. Wheels are ridiculous at $3600/set of BST carbon fiber wheels. LOL
