Why have black R&G Cotton Reels when you can have orange

I currently have the standard R&G cotton reels fitted. I hit upon the idea that R&G have made orange items for the KTM models and have discovered that some KTM orange cotton reels will fit the trusty Repsol Honda. I am reliably informed by R&G themselves that part number CR0001OR will fit. I have ordered a set so hopefully the bike will be just a little bit more orange!

Repsol Honda HRC Race tank fitted

Here is a photo of the bike with the HRC tank cover fitted. The tank offers better stomach support and gives the bike the racing appearance. 

The Hotbodies cover has the badge recess for the factory look
