Couldn't find a white beak for sensible money anywhere so I picked up this blue one for 45 and wrapped it in carbon, I think it looks spot on.

Looking good Jak. You not tempted to wrap the front mud guard ?

I quite like the contrast, I'd give it a go if it got scratched or damaged though.

@Jakm15 - Looks great, I think I'll give this a go myself. How did you finish the underside??

where did you get the tape from?
Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

The vinyl wrap was just off eBay, 10 for a decent size roll.

I don't suppose you've got a link or item number? There's so many different types on there I'd prefer to go for a recommendation (assuming your happy with the quality of your wrap?)
