Ok, so far I have relocated the horn, cinched up the front brake line closer to the front fork, painted the Harley emblems, added mirror extensions, installed the Buchshot heat shields, added the edge-cut muffler end cap and put a small Bell diddy-bag at the back of my seat. I still have that digital Tach yet to arrive but basically I think I'm done (for now).

Dam you move fast for an Old Dawg ;):D Looking clean, really like the painted accents, so subtle yet such an impact it makes overall!

OldDawg:
Where did you get the paint?
Got the paint at Walmart. It was a can of Krylon Super Bond Outdoor. I just sprayed some in a pill bottle and used a very fine brush. Kinda tedious work but you can do it if I can. I used a toothpick to clean around the edges as I screwed up.
Thanks for the compliments guys.

Hey, OldDawg:
Your additional hardware to the mirror extenders looks the best to me. Do you mind telling what length hex head bolt, nut? and washers you used?
I didn't buy any nuts and the washer were just a little smaller than the diameter of the threaded bolt so I drilled it out. The washer that actually fit the bolt was larger in circumference and I didn't like the way it looked. The bolt was 1 1/4 inches long overall. The actual threaded part was 1 inch. I drove my bike to the Ace store and took the mirrors and did that mod in the parking lot. That way I didn't have to run back and forth and could pick exactly what I needed and what looked best.

The small changes make a big difference. Goo call on the painted emblems it really adds a nice contrast.

I have a noob question for you? Does cinching up the brake line to the front fork have any adverse effects?
I have had it cinched up from the first week I bought my 750 and it hasn't had any adverse effects on my machine nor has it stressed the line. It is probably a stress relief for that line. It looks a lot better than just hanging there like a loose piece of rope.
