    Gave the tank a quick sanding with 2000, then 3000, then polish, came up o.k for a rattle can spray job in the garage,

    The paint job is not perfect and in spots there is some orange peel, but at the time I just wanted to get it painted and on the bike so I could go riding,

    Black Pearl is the colour,

    Ladies and Gentelmen, take my advise. "Pull down your pants and slide on the ice."

    Under tray adjusted and things rearranged to fit larger battery,



    Brackets I made so the radiators could be moved back for clearance of larger CBR10000RR forks,





    Right side case cover was cracked when I got the bike,

    quick fix with some JB weld, seems to be holding up well, might see if I can locate some Carbon/Kevlar case cover protectors !?

    Next job will be to fix these Carbon/Kevlar frame protectors,

    few blobs of silicone should probably do the job of attachment,

    outer layer of Carbon fiber, with an underlayer of Kevlar

    Just had a giggle to myself when I saw your front guard. I had a CF guard on my VTR. On a trip to Philip Island years ago I accidentally (because to do one on a public road deliberately would be illegal) did a wheely and landed it a bit hard. The tyre squashed the guard into the radiator and tore it into three pieces, flinging the biggest bit about 10m in the air. I thought it was hilarious and kept riding, but someone behind me picked it up and carried it all the way home for me. I never could make all the bits fit back together.
    Anyway, keep the pics coming
    If I had a dollar for every time I thought about you, I'd start thinking about you

    Maybe it's lucky then I still have the side mount radiators !? One less thing to worry about , if I had one of those accidental wheelies I'm fairly sure my oil cooler is well out of the way . I actually don't mind the look of the side mounts, seems most people don't like them tho.

    Last time the bike was up and running it had a stalling issue when the fan would come on at idle, since I ditched the Lithium battery and got a bigger 12 amp hr battery the idle stalling when fan comes on has stopped, so looks like the new larger battery has solved the problem .

    Bike is coming together nicely, most of the issues I had are slowly getting sorted, since I swapped back to the Honda OEM mufflers from the Yoshimura, the back firing appears to have gone and the bike seems to be running better.

    Front suspension may be set a little hard, so might have a fiddle around with settings.

    Quick ride this weekend,

    went past Devils bend golf club,

    40km/h posted sign at the end of the main road coming into a corner that intersects with a gravel side road, problem is that the gravel from the side road ends up on the main road , had the rear step out a little mid corner .
