Re: My tear down and rebuild

Hey guys! Another update for y'all!

Changed the oil as I had no idea how old it was and the bike came with no history, bike has 10k miles on it, so could well be that old! (didn't look it though)



Out with the old.......



In with the new.........



How she was sitting



Then Termignoni silencer fitted, to match the headers



Hmmmmmmm sexy! loll



That's it for now!

Me too! From factory wheels are supposed to be black for this colour scheme, somewhere in it's life the red wheels have been put on (or powder coated?) either think they look pretty coool

Re: My tear down and rebuild

update time!

cleaning up and fitting the throttle back



I routed the throttle cables the wrong way and had to remove the tank, and airbox again so I could route em around the right side of the frame, that ****ing sucked lol



fixed the rectifier bracket



used a metal plate on each side for added strength



fitted the bracket back and all electrics




I wasn't keen on the factory grips, so changed them



I have these grips on all my bikes, really like them





Front mud guard cleaned up and put back on. Cleaned up great but you cant really tell in this light



Front brake re - fitted. Got some new braided lines and levers to fit still.



Thanks

Re: My tear down and rebuild

Been a while been busy with Xmas and my Bday.

Happy new year all

I decided to do some work on the front loom because I thought the layout was messy and because I will be using after market lights i will need different connectors etc I might as well change it!

What I started with



Plan was to move the relays (so I can mount them both in the same place) and move all the light and indicator connectors to the same place

Going in deep!



Moving some things around and shortening / extending wires



Laid out how I want it and giving it a test it still all works lol



Loom taped up again



Wiring up my own connectors



DONE



Relays stuck to intake (As I will be using track fairings there are no mounting points for the relays)

One plug I can quickly / easily connect the lights and right side inidicator

Re: My tear down and rebuild

Got all the fairings rubbed down, fixed and cleaned ready to be primered

Front / upper fairing

smoothed over the holes for the mirrors as I won#t be using these



holes drilled in front for the front lights



Ready for a coat of primer



Tail rubbed down and ready for primer



Also the lower fairing (had to fix some damage)



Not too bad for first coat of primer









Looking like some weird ass art show



Going to rub them down ever so slightly and then give another coat of primer next up!

Stay tuned
