The Z1300's Six Pipes still look really impressive if you polish them up............even with the rad in the way !

You could consider painting the engine cases black, to make the pipes contrast.

Dont let polishing put you off mate..............
Even with Black Pipes, they still have a massive presence !!
Its just the sheer size and width of the motor with six pipes that makes it stand out from the rest (little 4 cylinder bikes) HAHA !

This was my last Z1300 (which had Black Pipes).

And as Jim rightly states, you can always consider painting the engine Black as well.
I took a "punt" on doing this with the last Z1300 Chop I built and was a bit concerned about doing it Black, but I think it came out well............
