Default Need to clean this up! Too many colors.. :(

Alright i think my bike doesnt look to bad right now. Except for the fact that there is just to many colors for my taste. I dont like how i have blue bar ends, but silver brake, and clutch levers. Here are some pictures for your guys opinion. I dont know which levers to go with, black, carbon, or blue?

Is that a marble paint job? Don't see that often on sport bikes. A friend got her bike done like that. Looks good!

On the bar ends, I think they're the wrong shade of blue. Too light. They contrast instead of complimenting the bike's base color. As dark as your bike is, I'd look at black for bar ends, rear sets and levers.

I would go with everything black or everything brushed aluminum. Like Kuro said, your bike is too dark for those bar ends. You're going to have a very difficult, if not impossible time trying to find some that match. And then you'll have to find levers, fairing bolts, or whatever else you want in that same color. Black or aluminum are easy to find and look good with just about anything.

yeah i thought they were going to look good, but that's pretty much all i could find, and i thought black was going to be to plain i wanted everthing to pop out... The bar ends match the rim tape, and my oil cap lol maybe i need black clutch and brake levers? and footpegs than it might all add up? i dont know.. its worth a try cause i dont wanna exchange them over the internet. :/ it doesnt look to bad does it? and yup its marble

It is hard to get bar ends and levers that will have the same blue. I tried and tried, then finally decided to switch. I got carbon levers, and bar ends, and got the blue 'CBR' logo grips.

Can you find decals the same color blue? That'd be the only way to bring it in: add more of that blue.

Blue decals and possibly blue mirrors?

Yep, pretty much this.
You could paint those bar ends, tho.

Otherwise, the bike looks cool. I like it!
