well for those of you that dont know me yet, i recently picked up this 08 r6 and have been ordering stuff by the day. today i went out and did my puig windscreen and signal mirrors. the mirrors have to be wired still, any one know how to do that? am i in for trouble or is it going to be fairly easy? i also have a lot more parts to install including hids, graves exhaust, filter, pcIII and some other things so stay tuned. also went to remove the passenger pegs but didnt have the right size allan so ill finish that up tomorow.









and heres a glance at how it was before.





let me know what everyone thinks, i need help with wiring the mirrors, right side foot peg change because its broke in half.

Nice. Run the wires down to the flush mount signals and splice them in with them. Black to black. Red from led mirrors to the green or brown for the signal.

You need to remove the assembly on the right and remove the rear break master cylinder. The peg has a screw in the back and you will need a vice and a breaker bar to get the screw out. The peg needs the rivit drilled out to remove it.

well it was to nice out today to work on, so i took it for a ride. its the first time ive just road with no destination and just road. usually i ride to work etc. today was just a ride, cleaned it up and took some pics at a pull-off near a lake.. here yea go.







oh and i also put this on today. also the silver is just growing on me so hard, i think im going to find a matching paint and paint the chain guard, and the tire guard or w.e that bolts to the swing arm silver. also ordering a cowl. liquid silver is amazing in the sun.

I'm right there with ya...bought my 08 r6 last month...my first bike. Is your puig screen black or dark smoke? I was thinking about getting the dark smoke (I'd still like to see through it). I tried pulling my rear pegs off a while back...simple process, but the holes under the tail for them stuck out like a sore thumb...I figured it looked better with them on until I can find a way to plug the holes.

looks good bro...only thing is I'm not totally feeling those rear turns, how about an integrated tail to keep those sexy lines??
