Gixxer 400 Bling


Hi, I know there's not a super lot out there in the way of bling designed specifically for the baby gixxer but does anyone know of any aftermarket parts for the following that will fit on the GK76A?:
1) wave type rotors
2) (shorty) brake & clutch levers
3) race rearsets

Also I'm wondering which is better, to chrome plate the wheels or just have them machine/hand polished to a mirror like finish? Any suggestions/advice would be appreciated.

I have an idea that EBC do rotors including the wavy type for the 76. Be worth measuring size and offset of the standard rotors to see if anything else matches.
A couple of the Chinese companies do dogleg and shorty levers for a variety of bikes. I have some on my SV and good quality they are too despite the sub £40 price, so you may well find some that fit the 76. Try Motomarts or moto777 on ebay.

Re: Gixxer 400 Bling


i m sure i have seen loads of wave rotors in ebay. shorty levers also and might fit from other bikes as well like the bandit.
about the rear-sets its a bit hard. the last ones i remember seeing was from a Japanese auction site and were pretty expensive(200£ or something). and i think that would be around the same price if u quote for custom CNC billeting ones from a right price shop.

also about the wheels i suggest machine/hand polish as chrome might deteriorate fast due to small rocks and chips on the road as it is kind of a painting processing.
