    Over the years i did the usual, ditched the reflectors, changed the pipe, chucked some go fast bits on it and powder coated the rims black

    this was fun to ride around on for a while, but now its time to man up and do it properly. This is currently how it sits at the moment

    Nice one Damo. What's the plan for the bike so? Just handlebars and headlight or looking and doing some more mods?

    Be nice if its that easy haha, so far i have found i gotta get rid of the ugly overflow bottle, have to relocate the key barrel as it will prob interfere with the headlight, still undecided on the headlight setup as i don't want to block the ram-air, black out the forks and lower clamp, hoping to retain the original gauge so will need to jig something up for that and also relocate the steering dampner.

    Hoping to just get the essentials done now where it looks reasonable and rideable, then just plod along with extra bits when the weather is too shit to ride

    Hopefully it holds together, next up cut the key barrel holder off, give it a tidy up and bolt her up

    Dude that will be more than fine, it should outlast the human race
    Depending on the yoke a big washer on the bottom side is sometimes enough
    I am very proud of my race....the fucking human race...........

    Quick question, whats the consensus with mounting something in front of the intake? There doesn't seem to be a lot on offer for mask setups with vents. Its not going to be doing the same sort of speeds it would have done fully dressed so the ram air may not be as relevant anymore but would it affect the day to day sort of stuff?

    yea i like the look of that one and would probably end up going that way, was more curious if the mask didnt have the mesh on the front would it affect how the bike runs

    It really shouldn't affect how the bike runs. As they have all types of grills stock and channels. The only thing that may affect it is if you have a sensor in the air channel.
