    First, a couple before pics…

    The old grips/levers

    Note the snazzy tape job holding the barend on

    The new grips/levers from 2wheels.com, did these before I stripped the bike

    HUGE improvement, had to redo the internal weight on the throttle side, as the previous owner had left it just rattling around inside there – causing A LOT of hand pain…

    Here she is, stripped and ready for new goodies.

    note the ugly mid pipe exposed here…

    …and the improved, black wrapped pipe here. More on that in the “How-to” section.


    That’s all I’ve got for now….hope to bust out some big things today.

    PROGRESS!
    Tail section – done.

    The passenger seat and solo cowl fit well with no major gaps.

    Nose is assembled and temporarily mounted, and front fender is on.

    I have better pics coming, these are from my cell phone. No major problems so far, just a little finessing here and there. More to come! Stay tuned.

    Saturday update. Waiting on a front tire, and oil change. Need to fit belly pans. A couple adjustments here and there. I can’t wait to roll it out in the sun and clean all the fingerprints that I’ve left on it. Still no major issues…had to drill out the mount holes on the front fender and needed a couple extra hands getting the mids to line up. So far, so good.

    Tire wont be here til Tuesday. :( Might get impatient and put the old one on just to clean it up, lol.

    @spdygak – lmao….maybe some (Denver) orange pinstripes around the flames?
    @inkslingerxx – mine is a metallic blue, I can’t wait to see it all cleaned up in the sunlight. I do like the yellow/black though.

    Thanks guys, the good news – it’s DONE! Full review with lots of pics coming up….the bad news – STILL waiting on a front tire so I can get it off the lift and clean it up for all those upcoming pics….Might just get it done in time for BOTM.

    I tried to do the BOTM and the review, but the site does not post them… @admin I tried to PM admin, and the same thing – posts the points for it, but doesn’t show up.

    Ooooh… I’m just loving that new look, she looks simply gorgeous!! :-)

    I much prefer this look to your repsol scheme … the black and blue just looks so much more classy!!
