    Was tempted by the light blue, Police blue like your pic will lead to points I'm sure, poss even accusations of impersonating Police though would be good on the motorway to get people to move over.
    The only road legal options are the clear ones however. I might fit some in time but keep finding more apealing bits to change at present.
    Just fitted some HEL brake lines.
    You can use it, but itís at your own risk.

    I was thinking more from a protection perspective, my mate had one cracked on his R1 m from a flicked up stone and it's not cheap to replace... the protectors are £20 and thought I could add a bit of styling at the same time

    I've got blue ones fitted to mine. People do pull over. whether its the light or not I'm not sure. It is illegal in the UK to have anything other than clear. Some years ago I filtered along a long queue of traffic where ther had been some incident when I got to the front I was pulled & aggressively given a lecture by a young PC and told to remove the maroon protectors I had on my ZX9 R at the time.

    I've encountered a few plods on the road some moving some static & so far I've n ot caused any reaction. I'd just plead ignorance & remove them if there were an issue.

    Think I might go for the red ones if I were to purchase again to give of the bloodshot eye terminator 2 look. Or am I being childish.

    I have a pair smoked ones, but I still havent figured out how to mount them without glue.
    They came with velcros...

    Yeah I see they use pin lock, bit better than Velcro but still shoddy

    red ones on the front would get you pulled straight away
    your only allowed red on the back for safety reasons, people might not realize your coming towards them until its too late
