Default just got my first bike 2 days ago i have lots of questions!

im not to sure if i should be posting a question here or not. but this is my first post.

first of all. i want the cbr600 gauges to stand out more and be a bit more flashy.

i want a kit where the rpm needle changes from white or blue, to red as you get higher in the rpms. i saw a video of it online. it looks really sweet. who makes the coolest gauges, where should i go?

second of all. i want a fender eliminator kit to shape up my rear end.
where should i go for this?

only piece of advice i can give is....... if this is your first bike....... and you're new to riding....... don't get too worked up about fancy gauges. You need to be watching the cars / objects / traffic in front of you.... NOT fancy glowing colorful gauges. They won't save your life when a car slams on it's brakes in front of you. They tend to be distracting. I rarely look at my gauges any more except at stop lights.

I dont think he is asking for riding advice? He is asking about gauges...

There is a guy on the 600RR.net forum(BrowningBuck) that customizes just about everything on the gauges, from color changes to adding an Acumen gear indicator. Check out his official sit below.

go to this site http://www.kosonorthamerica.com/index_cdn.html
check out the RX-2 gauge cluster. It's the nicest aftermarket gauge I've seen yet, and on my Christmas list.

Ride Safe.

Ok, you will flame me. 1st bike a CBR600. It should have been a Kawasaki EX500 or 600 Katana or even a GS500. Good luck.

No I don't need to flame you, you just don't know anything about me so It's not your fault you don't get it. I grew up on dirt bikes, my dad races bikes and sprint cars, I'm 215 lbs and an avid martial artist. I Snowboard, ski, downhill mountain bike, mountain board, and have on occasion driven and navigated in the west coast rally club out here. The 600 felt like it had been my bike for years after my first ride. Not everybody drinks from the same well man.

Why assume he's talking about you? It's not your thread.

Actually, after reading your reply you probably would assume it's all about you...but it isn't
