I already got the bike lowered.. but thought I should do something to the down pipe.. so I prepped for the infamous rattle can action!

After much debate w/myself.. I ordered the Rizoma bracket from good ol' PJ's parts
NOTE: I've tried a fair amount of positions for this to fit the way it is supposed to.. you may have to install upside down like I have it.. still looks dope!

Since I'm waiting on parts... I thought to finally use the chain cleaner I got a while back... DAMN! Works GOOD & EASY!!!
TIP: Cut out a card board backing/shield to prevent chain-grease splatter all over the bike,wheel,etc.. trust! It helps w/the clean up!

Finally! After placing an order Dec 1st.. My freaking clamps arrived!! Ordered from Koolance
.. their logo on the clamps is kinda kool!
TIP: use soap/water around the tube to better help slide these clamps in easier... but try NOT to get any on the inside tubing..
(I thought to use the factory clamps.. turns out they were too big... bought some other clamps off e-bay.. came wrong size! ...doh! Then pondered into these babies! Effing tight clamp!)
EDIT: Size is 10mm (3/8in)

Got her all put back together! DUN! Brakes bled, clamps installed, bolts tightened, and Oil changed! ALL INSTALLED! Here are the pretty pictures....
TIP: Upper Triple Clamp Removal/Install (w/Ignition Lock)
Lower Link & Adjustable Kickstand...
Front Spiegler brake lines w/banjo bolts... also found a short SS allen head bolt to fill the hole
(I've modified the stock bracket to fit the Rizoma perfectly... took alot of filing down! also shaved off the factory protector arm for the OEM reservoir to expose the Rizoma!)
