Red fit the Sith 100 times better than blue lightsaber.

Because he likes blue? Why does it matter what color a sith or jedi's lightsaber is?

Because only shallow, vain, vapid people consider the color of anything to be of any importance. A weapon is a weapon, despite the color.

Most likely because Exar Kun is one of the few Sith lords without direct connection with the Sith Empire, he got his teachings and plans from holocrons and SIth ghosts, all earlier and later Sith Lords would be able to trace their allegiance to the original Sith Empire

Because Blue is his fav color? Red may be identifiable to sevants of the Dark Side, but there have been Jedi with crimson bladed lightsabers. It is rare, but some do. Just as some Sith have blue or green bladed weapons.

Kun was given the title of the Dark Lord of the Sith by Ragnos, he also succeed the power from Naga Sadow.

Some did. Some wore a mixture of armour and robes/cloaks, and others wore cloaks over tunics. Overall there was less conformity in appearance for the Jedi at this time.
It depended more on the individual and sometimes their cultural identity.

Because the Sith from the Great Hyperspace War didn't' have lightsabers. Ergo there was no red lightsaber tradition yet.
