Getting closer to being completed. Its on the road now and I'm just doing some final work to it before I call it good enough for the upcoming season. Need to cut some vinyl for the rear tanks (number plate kinda thing), add some electronics (fuzeblock, heated grips, gps, etc). A new shiny, etc, etc

Decided the upper white decal was a bit too much white so they got removed...








Thanks for the compliments, is it bad that my mind has already wandered to next winters facelift

Time to get this thing dirty

I liked the stickers on the upper fairing. Looked good IMO.
Rear tanks are screaming for some kinda logo - like it's speeding forward!! Needs a plate tho.
So next year what's on the cards? I reckon a different headlight setup would b cool since everything else is already changed

I saw CJ made some aluminum tanks....in my opinion I'd lose 10 liters from the front tanks and slim it down a bit. Other thoughts are a completely new windshield and upper fairings, kinda like the Aprilla rally bike. Dual headlights, side by side, tucked into the fairings...leaving the existing headlight space for a large glove box/storage box. Next winter I think it'll be time to try my hand at some molds and carbon work and maybe hire an aluminum dude. The rear fender needs some work as well.....The under seat storage area needs to be enlarged and a second lightweight battery needs to be installed, a single quad piston front brake would be nice to lighten up the front end, would very much like to change the rack of the forks...I think it would tighten up the steering radius which would be a plus in certain situations...the list never ends

But for now I think it turned out pretty good, motor seems to be pulling strongly. The new suspension is fantastic (thanks to Javier at Trail Tricks). Pannier racks still need to be cut and welded. I've a few good trips planned for this summer and the extra fuel mileage is going to come in handy.
