Looks dope bro, might I suggest removing the plastic reflective markers? It totally cleans up the look of the bike. Besides, rim tape is much more functional! Nice to see the Raven de-badged. I've the white one myself.

Ya now that you mention it that would look nice. I'll have to see if my state requires me to keep that on or if I need it for inspections. Lets see yours I was thinking white plastics would look nice also

I've got some pictures of it here on the forum, sadly no picture with the reflectors off. Legality aside, I can't really speak of it but putting on some rim tape rather than having reflectors would be even better. Not only for looks, but for practicality.

Yes rim tape is one of the next few on my list. I'm gonna upgrade looks before I even think about anything with the engine. Tbh I actually am gonna wait to see where They go with the 2019 r3 as fas as engine size. If it gets that much better with the new r3 then I might just be biying a new bike. If nothing happens power based with the new r3 then hopefully a plastics conversion for my bike will be in order. The pics I seen for the new one look great.

I'd be hugely surprised to hear, at this late date, that Yamaha's 2019 R3 had a different and larger engine. I suspect we'll see several different bike mfg's , including Yamaha, follow Kawasaki's lead into the 400cc area. But, I suspect it will be several years away before they all shake out. :)

As far as I know nothing will be done with the new r3 but that doesn't get my hopes down for a suprise up yamaha sleeve in the next couple year's. Until then I'll keep having fun on my bike.
