    You and me both but I have no doubt they will. Came highly recommend from two people that have been doing this longer than I’ve been alive. Both are also Öhlins dealer

    Any thoughts on this fairing? It’s off a kzp1000 I picked up yesterday. I really like it but it screams Harley maybe?

    Kinda like it myself - would be able to better tell if painted black to match the bags perhaps?

    Entire bike will get paint and powder later down the road. Everything will be the same color with matching pinstripes.

    I want to hate it, but I don’t. I’d run it, but i’d swap out those turn signals and cut the windshield even more... and you already know it needs paint.

    Yea the “windshield” is actually a big bent up scratched up piece of aluminum. If the fairing stays which I’m leaning towards it will get something more like these.

    The bike on the left I got to check out at the Sierra stakeout last year and fell in love with KZ1000P’s.

    I really want to keep the fairing with the KZ but I think I’ll find a cleaner KZ1000P as a base bike anyway. Also the fairing is super over built and pretty heavy, I’m sure I’ll have to get stiffer fork springs if it stays.

    This is the color I’m going with for the fairing, tank, fenders, bags and battery cover. They’ll all get matching black bmw style pinstripes too. The fairing will get the same looking pinstripes it already has.

    Love that color. It’s going to look awesome with black pinstripes and that seat. Can’t wait to see it!

    I can’t wait to see it finished too! I’ve got a million small things and quite a few very large things left. Just found out I’m going to be out country for a full 365 though. So it may take minute to see it finished. Silver lining I might just be able to afford 90ish hp motor build I’m after.

    No, just keeping it simple black. There’s going to be lots of small anodized black parts and it will be much easier to match everything this way.

    eBay, let me see if I can find the link. Solid seat, from what I’ve seen it’s one of the better ones. Customer service was great too.
