First you don't like the oil cooler covers, now you don't like thr front fender (two of the distinctive styling cues of the bike). Sounds like you bought the wrong motorcycle.

Dont be negative Icarlson. Some people like to put personal style to things. If u like it original then its up to you.
I like to do things with bikes. Some like to do nothing at all. Thats ok for me and I dont blame them.

I like the original. It certainly is unusual and different from a UJM. And I do not look at it when riding this unique bike. Anything else will be ordinary- but each to their own.
