Matt finish!
Fuck you’ve completely ruined the bike, should have gone gloss.

It's all a bit of a ball ache. The oem is matte for the most part, but stuff like end caps
on exhausts always seem to end up gloss.
Once you start changing bits you usually end up with a mix, that looks arse. (Heat shields,
heel plates etc that come as part of a bigger hardware package)
If mine wasn't a track bike, I would probably learn how to matte it all out. As it stands,
it will stay a mix.

carbon is very personal choice, I don't like carbon as a finish myself after all it's a material ...would one leave their car silver if it came from the factory just because it's made of aluminum?

Give it color FFS!

Akra has gloss on ends and also heat shield

It is all still in boxes though. Have to put it on the bike one day.
