Well 3 years I have been coming here and think it is about time to introduce myself. The Ninja was bought in late September 2016 an SE model in Matte Metallic Carbon Grey. Get a lot of comments on it. As my user name implies I am a Ford Tech. Have been for 30 years. Certified Master Tech since 2003. I don't specialize too much, but do a lot of diesel work.
Have been divorced since 2001 with 2 children. A boy now 20 and a girl now 27. I have had good experiences on this forum on any questions I asked, or comments made. I am 56 years old and been riding since I was 18. The Ninja is one of the nicest bikes I have ever had. The Bandit 1200 I had was bought new and slowly modified and personalized over the years. I sold it with 167,000 km's on it.
2015 I met a wonderful woman who does like to ride with me sometimes, I had to buy a GIVI top case with backrest as I was scared she was going to fly off. And on occasion yes she does like going fast!!! LOL...
So...….HOLA to everyone here!!!!

The power bronze has been good.
Performed well with no issue.
It's the carbon fibre version.

Completely up to you of course but the rear hugger is mostly out of the line of site so colour coding is probably not that important but if you want everything colour matching on your bike you should do it.
Here's a pic of the hugger on my old Gen1 14 but I also have the same one on my current Gen2...

I mentioned this recently on another thread but the thing I believe makes a huge difference to the look of the bike is the ZX-10 front fender mod. It replaces the stock front fender that to me has a chunky touring kind of look and replaces it with a sleek sport bike look.
Maybe a consideration.
P.S.
If you are interested I have a post on how to do it...

Thanks guys!
Rook: I have read a lot of your posts and some of your great ideas! Yannih: I really have no problem with the look of the front fender...I actually like it. It looks very aerodynamic to me. However the hugger I would really like to have and Ermax makes a colour match for mine.
