anybody with a Vision and even small cahonies would rip all those covers off and replumb this motor so it hoses and wires were more discrete and pleasant to look at and not just the CF Honda hid under wraps. Custom make 2 new Intake manifolds with Side accessible Performance Air filters. Custom build show worthy 3 into 1 exposed Exhaust headers each side that merge into a single collector with left side exhaust. Hang a big honking can on it with a manual baffle tip for 2 stage performance. Get rid of the plastic wings and relocate those radiators, either a single large curved rad in front with 2 small fans ducting with side exits.. or a bigass single rad with dual fans stuffed in a left side case with discrete air induction cutouts in front and exhaust relief cutouts on the backside/ wheelside. the right side bag could be left functional , but the left side bag is just a cover housing hiding the rad. nobody would know unless you pointed it out.
there are ton of things you can do to this and any other platform if you have a vision and are willing to execute it. like all good projects it helps to make a plan. write it down. draw it out. run it by people you trust. some are worth listening to. those that just scoff at you or your ideas and initiative, mostly because they have none of their own, pay no attention to the nay sayers, they are a drag on life and will try to keep you from learning and growing from experiences, as they are not. poncho
