Jana is pretty much the land of modded everything IMO and it's always interesting to see what they come up with next for both cars and motorcycle. OutLoud Motorcycle seems to have taken a liking to the SCR950 and created a rendering of what their version will look like.

With a shorter seats and fender eliminator, it's body seems a lot more compact and the tank is smaller too? Though I'm not sure when those parts will go on sale.

Always hated those stock mirrors, glad they did something about it. Bar ends are always the way to go. With the stock mirrors this bike looks like mickey the mouse. Fastersons is yet again another great example of what can be done:

That OutLoud motorcycle will definitely get a lot of attention like you were screaming Out Loud! I love it. All blacked out and stealthy. Sleek looking, the seat alone with that lip-up at the back really adds a lot to the back.

Looks like OutLoud completely removed the side mirrors and left that area empty. :D
They may have also replaced the stock tank with a custom one because the fuel door is located in a different area. Other most of the parts are just paint black as far as I can tell.

Looks like no turn signals as well. But the fuel cap could just been changed over to a flush mount opposed to the stock one that sticks out.

Speaking of painting things black, I've always wondered how well plasti dip holds up to heat. Think it can withstand around 312F, so it should be fine for use on exhausts and pipes but never tried it.

That is definitely not fine at all!

Pipes can get beyond 1200F on serious pulls and on idle can hit roughly 800F

Based on general readings, not specifically the SCR. Someone could get an IR temperature scanner and give us some data though.

Those pipes get hot enough to burn your flesh instantly, experienced this firsthand and it's not fun. A 1000 deg. F allowance is generally good enough for most bikes that doesn't have a catalytic converter in the headpipe.

Rustoleum has paint products specifically for automotive applications that can withstand up to 2000F and that's something I would opt for and it's chemical resistant. Plastidip I can imagine would cause a lot of smoking at first, and I don't even want to know what that rubberized spray smells like when it's getting baked :|

Nah, I've just learned to wear long pants after that and it'll give me enough time to pull away from any hot exhaust bits. No need for Rustoleum products.
Looks like Outloud removed the front fork reflectors too, cleaner look but I think that's illegal.

Its easy to put a strip of clear reflective tape on lower fork leg.

Dont even know its there unless light is shining on it.

I think you legally have to have one, but size doesn't really matter so reflective tape would work of you can just attach the tiniest one you can find.

I think if you take the mirrors off almost any motorcycle there is an immediate aesthetic improvement.

I don't know the legalities of motorcycle reflectors. Maybe it varies from state to state?

Hence why i can't wait for more advanced tech to come out for motorcycle safety since it will result in a cleaner look for us, although that will come at a cost. Good times ahead. HUD helments should aid in that :D

The best motorcycle safety you can add aside from good gear is a loud horn. Those small beeps won't work as well as a loud horn to let drivers know where you are. Heck, I've had cars try to cut me off while I'm in an SUV...

Well if you're going the loud route, may as well get louder pipes as well to inform distracted drivers that you are indeed beside them. They don't need to be window shattering loud, as those annoy me as well, and there are other exhaust options out there.

There's always a back and forth on that. A lot of people will say even if your exhaust is loud, it's only loud for the people behind you and not in front because of course the exhaust is exiting to the rear.

LOL! Sorry but that's rediculous.
Trust me if youre running loud pipes people hear you in all directions.

There's been a few discussion about that when it comes to the doppler effect and exhaust pipes, though it will be louder once you pass a car, I think if the pipe is loud enough they'll still hear it more than stock.
