Hey, good effort here, Customising to your taste means a lot. But I feel you have been ripped off on the fitting charges. K&N fitting charges 750Rs is outrageous. Thats almost half the price of the filter. Any idea what work was done to fix it? I had mine fixed in 2 mins.

But if you are satisfied, thats most important. Please let us know where you got all these works done, especially the HID conversion.

On a hindsight, for you have spent so much on the mods, it would have been great to spend a few more bucks to get a better helmet - AGV, GPOne to name a few

And please let us know about the performance of the bike, as pointed out, esp. the HID.

Did you also get a ballast installed for your HID?

and for the kind of volatge that a ballast will throw out, what kind of a switch are you using.

I saw one example in a RE bullet with a HID + Ballast + NOS Switch.
Awesome brightness but it cost him close to 8k.

For that money, I will instead buy and eat a lot of carrots.

Even 2600 is too cheap. It must be around 5000-6000.

Carrots are good for your digestive system as well, not to mention the fact that you are less likely to get run over by a car driver who's just been blinded by you
