    Re: To polish or not to polish ?

    If it were me I would choose the un blued one and when the bike is run let it 'blue' naturally......(which it will if it is Titanium..)

    The "pre blued" version looks unnatural and factory applied "selective"

    Just my own personal opinion for what it is worth though.

    Congratulations Carlo.!!!

    Whatever 'option' you went for will be stunning I am sure.!

    The 'stance' of it on that bike.,in that photo above looks just fantastic.!!

    Webike is like a motorcycle builders 'black hole'....your life savings gets sucked in.....,Never to be seen again.! (And like victims of hypnosis.,we appear powerless to resist...)

    Once again Carlo......Congratulations.!!

    If you want to add blue in the future all it takes is a propane torch, that one didn't have as much blue when it arrived from K-Factory.

    Thinking more about this, my next ti system will be polished and unblued. I知 amazed at the durability of polished ti vs raw.

    sometimes i think maybe i put to much thought into certain things and forget others but an exhaust is crucial to the flow of the design of the machine but even more so the finish can make or break it.

    Exactly. But Brian has a point here of course, too.

    Congrats Carlo. I am so curious to see that bike blossom under your hands.
