Finally, I feel the bike is worthy of one... :wave:

Well, here she stood just minutes after bringing her home from the first time. March 14, 2008 (date is wrong on cam). Happiest day of my life, even though it cost me a girlfriend.

Yes, I know my garage is a warzone. It was clean up until 2 hours ago when I couldn't find my soldering iron, lol. Tore everything apart trying to find it.

Will do. Standard or metric?

Oh, and the headers aren't rusty. Just discolored. The steel turned some orangish color from what ever coating they have on it. I'll get a closer picture.

It just seems like it's the galvanize that turned. If it was rust, I'd be freaking out, 'cause my bike is stored indoors.
It's more like a light copper anodize color, or sunburnt orange.

You've also wound your bike up more then me. Kept it below 7,000 for the most part as I've been commuting mostly. I'm sure it'll turn purple when I'm doing track days and riding the skirt off of the thing.

You probably thought of it long before me. :bootyshak
I've only had the idea for maybe 6 days now. You have an 06 anyway. :D (looks odd on the 06 though)

Driveway is at an angle...I've had to chase the bike down on the stand once before. Not fun. Gotta stuff something heavy behind it to keep it in place.

No more then .5". Sliders aren't supposed to stick out far; they're designed to protect the frame and engine after all, and not the fairings from a 0mph drop.

Optimal. I think they're the same...but I can;t just say they are. They're getting mounted tomorrow and fit up. Painting on Thursday; I can't paint to save my life (impatience), so a friend is coming over to do it for me. He's godly with spray paint.

Took an hour riding back and forth from walmart (pedal bike) just to get a soldering iron. Got the lights soldered up and aimed right. Pics are uploading now.

All of Durbahn's stuff is expensive, but damn is it all worth it. Plus, he sells PVM 10 spokes too.


I'm going to go jump in the shower and wash off all of this fiberglass (itchy itchy), so I'll be posting some pics in a little. Taking some tomorrow in daylight before everything comes off to be painted. Did ride it to go get batteries, and holy hell does it sound beastly up front with all of the stuff gone.

Pricey my ass. It's still cheaper then my last ex. I learned the hard way, don't date a chick from Puerto Rico; they make you buy everything!

Thanks. The holes made it impossible to fit my '06 light in there, but of well. I just gotta cut the battery tray off there to prevent water from seeping down to the electronics. She's all ready for Jennings...except I gotta flush the coolant system and put water in.

Kinda, but I'm going to bend the lights up to make it better.

Still out with my friend painting the fairings. Ran into a problem while painting and had to start over.
Huge ass hawk flew over my house, and shat on the fairings while they where trying.
Then had to throw the OEM tank and mirrors on and rode the naked bike to get bulbs for my work lights. Grrr.

Doing it yourself is a pain, but if you take your time and have a helping hand, it'd be fairly easy.

Yup, that's my garage. Hence why making sliders has been put on hold.

Krylon was $2 more per can. Being cheap bit me, but oh well.

It kind of is a way to profile young people, but they have a legit reasoning behind it. Under 21 are required to wear a helmet, so they need some way for cops to tell if you're required to or not.

They have the 100% satisfaction guarantee, and even though I'm fine with the job that's on there, it pisses me off that th insanely nice work a friend and I did was ruined after the first coat of clear, after the stuff baked under 500w lamps for 18 hours.

11-22-2008, 07:44 PM
I was going to wet sand it out, but it happened with the first coat of clear and didn't want to mess with it. Primered it, three coats of white, four red, four black. Used up a bit of paint 'cause I never go use past 1/3 empty for spray paint. If I get my money back, it'll at least be able to cover some decent paint to redo it.

After that, more propellant is coming out then paint and it can get all lumpy. Doesn't coat evenly either since it's more of a messy spray then a mist.

Just got back from an hour ride to go adjust my lights out in some sugar cane areas with no lights.
I did something bad out there, but stopped once my brain kicked in and kicked my ass, lol. Took off and was at 100 before I knew it. :\
Felt good though, but got on the brakes as soon as I noticed.

Rustoleum has the satisfaction guarantee. I'll get some close-ups of the paint in a few.

Edit: This is with following their directions, except for when we had the paint underneath 500w lamps to heat up the garage since it got down to 60* at night. Was 87* in the garage though.

Since it's storming pretty bad down here and the power and internet keep cutting out, I decided to go out to the garage and work on some rearset risers. Got some scrap aluminum from my dad's work (I love getting free chunks of aluminum).
These are some axle parts from I think an Acura TL. Pretty decent pieces that I can make some cool stuff with, and they're 7074.
6061 would have been better, but 7074 flexes more without breaking. :)

When I get some round stock in I'll be making some footpegs for the stock rearsets too. No need to buy new ones if I can make them better and have replacement parts for $15.

I was thinking of getting OES ones, but no need when I can make my own. I'll probably have 2 or 3 different positions to mount the rearsets. I have enough room for back 1" and up 1.5". I'm short so I really don't need to go back too much.

My garage/workshop. I don't work in my dad's shop unless it's on a car that I'm building. His bosses kind of look the other way, but they still don't like a non-employee working with the car lifts and everything (even though the engine and transmission lifts they're using where welded by me 4 years ago).

12-02-2008, 06:48 PM
They're pretty much the exact same as the 002's, just harder compound in the center. They're still much softer then stock.
002's are soft/med for the front and rear. These are soft/hard on front and soft/med/hard on the rear.

Anything is better then stock though. I was backing it out of turns so easily today when riding. Fun as hell though.

Fortunately my boots aren't that small. I can still reach the shifter pretty well. It'll take some getting used to though. I will be working on something to extend the shift arm though. If you have the tools, an easy way is to cut it in half, drill two holes on each half, and have another piece of scrap aluminum with holes drilled every so often so you can move it back and forth. I'll draw something up to explain what I'm talking about.

I always leave it to where I can move it around. Rather be overkill then have to take it apart later to redo it.

There's another good thing about it. If you crash and break the shifter pedal, it'll snap at the extension linkage. You could easily make some aluminum stock into another top section. Ghetoness at it's finest.

I could do something similar. Wouldn't mount it to the fork leg since I can't mill something that perfectly round. I could easily do it to mount onto the HESD screws or anywhere else that you'd like.
I'm going to go look at my fairing stay and see where it could be mounted so you can see it without looking down and away from the track.

Yea, Im rockin the stock stay but will be getting the tripage stay in the near future so I'll have to find a different place to mount it. If you can cleanly bend sheet aluminum that is an option too that would give you the ability to angle the mount and timer infinitely.

Sorry for the thread jack btw

Thread jack all you want. I'm open for ideas on making stuff, lol.
If only aluminum could bend infinitely. That's why my old FE snapped on me the other day. I have a clever idea that I could do. I could possibly get it done with my manual stuff.
Make it out of delrin, and you can angle it how ever you want, and do that over and over and over without it snapping.

Mounted the headlights in a new location. Now I can feel at ease when getting on the brakes.

I accidentally dropped the fog lights when working with with them and the filaments broke, so I had to go ride to pick new ones up. At least they're cheap and no cop saw me. Sucks though because I was just out on my way to film some Florida twisties when I noticed they where out.

I believe that's why I've been pulled over 42 times in 9 months. I always am doing the speed limit in the parks, and on some turns I can occasionally get decent lean angle. I use the same argument every time. I'm in there abiding by the rules having myself some fun, rather then being out on the streets speeding, doing wheelies, or off somewhere doing drugs.

I also have that under 21 tag on there, so I'm sure that has a huge hand in the number of times I've been pulled over. I need to stop at my mom's job site tomorrow to take some pictures of something and the town's PD is letting me park in their lot. First thing they said when she told them I'd be in full gear was "Either he's really smart, or he runs from the cops a lot."

Yeah. Just got a small hole/crack in the upper/mid, left mirror is slightly broken, some big scuffs and a crack in the tail and my left front rotor was slightly bent. Pulled the wheel off, threw my one spare rotor on, put it back, and it's all good now.

The little bastard was holding my bike up while I moved some stuff (I'm remodeling my garage to make room for my anodizing set-up that's coming soon and my vacuform machine [Can you say single bubble race screens?]) and the kickstand was up, which he knew about. He let go of the bike and started to walk away, then just stood there for maybe 30 seconds while I'm laying there pinned between some engine heads (my body saved the bike from them) and the bike.

The warranty on his 360 is up in a week.

At least some good things came of it.

1) I know the Optimal fairings, despite being really stuff, are actually fairly flexible. The small crack/hole in the upper/mid was from my flashlight. The stuff on the tail is from the landing on my air compressor. Rotor was from, I don't know, but the wheel wasn't spinning once I got it up. Took it off and it was slightly bent. One of the aluminum spokes was bent in and that distorted the steel.
2) 'crash' tested the prototype billet reservoir. No leaks or fluid aeration.
3) It's all on the left side. Right is the picture side. :)

So I got bored and was out in the garage for the past hour working on something that came to mind.

So, I love the look of the barends on aftermarket clip-ons. Removed the barend cuts and all of that stock crap from inside the clip on, and made this little thing.

As it sits right now, it's just the barend. Tomorrow if it's not raining I'll be going for a ride to test these for vibrations. There's no internal weights anymore, so I'm guessing there will be some pretty bad vibrations. With that in mind, I will be taking a little trick from paintball parts and putting them to use here. Stainless steel weights that will thread to the backside of it and fit into the clip-on. I'm thinking a 25g, 2 10g, and 2 5g weight pieces. I plan on starting to make these if it all works out on my bike, so no matter what, you will be able to adjust their weight to rid the bars of vibrations. All bikes are different, different grips absorb some vibrations, and riding conditions add to it as well.

Sensitive indeed. I think my cnc-conversion finally bit me in the butt with my mill. I gotta rebuild the whole thing tomorrow.

About the rearset risers though, after I got the first one mounted up, I noticed just how low my legs really sit on the tank. I gotta get the other one made up before the .net track day. It will help me so much with braking and body position. Started paying attention to how my legs sit and when braking it's been making me put all my weight on my arms and hands rather then legs. Lead to a nasty locked front end the other day, but I got out of it. Doing some 60-0 stops practicing and the front end locked around 20mph. That was fun...

You came late! I've made the same choice but i have to say my bike is track only and i didn't gave problems with the more vibrations i feel. But it could be a problem if you ride for 150/200 miles in a day!

I went from the stock barends, to aluminium barends to only little barends with the same diameter of the bars!

7075 is still much tougher then delrin. I've tried nylon and it didn't hold up as well. Nylon is just too soft.


Well, the results are in anyway.
Left side was my normal barend with the stock weight in it.
Right side was with the weights removed and that little stub of a barend on.

At idle, there wasn't much of a difference, but the left side had slightly more.
From 2,000-3,000, there was a bit more vibrations on the right side.
From 3,000-15,000, noticeably less vibrations on the right side. From 9,000 and up I was felling more vibrations in my ass and feet then I was my right hand. Same can't be said for the left.

Guess these wont need any weights. Even cruising at 5,000RPM there was less vibrations.

I'm sure you have a drill press. That makes this job much easier. I used mine for 90% of the bolts. I found taking a piece of wood, setting the bolt on its side and tapping so it sinks in the wood a bit helps. A lot of the honda bolts have the flared base on the bolt head which keeps them from sitting flat on the deck of the drill press(as im sure you have noticed)

I broke 5 of my 6 bits so I decided to just play it safe. The stock bolts on my rear line was easy to do, but those goodridge ones are a bitch. Got it all done, milled some slots in my sliders and now I just gotta wire it up. Should keep me from taking my bike apart all the time so I can ride more.


Just got back from a ride with the new barend design on both sides. So much less vibrations then with the stock weights in the bars. Bike is also running 3* cooler then normal since I switched to Amsoil synthetic. :) Wasn't cold weather either; it's 75* out right now.

Edit, yeah I have a drill press. I also have an assortment of 'grips' for different sized bolts so that I can clamp them into a rotary clamp and drill holes in them perfectly straight. Just thread the bolts/screws into it, put it on the clamp, and drill.

Aww, I'm sorry. Do you need a hug? lol

I made all my press stuff. The rotary clamp is just my spare chuck for my lathe, and the bolt/screw 'grips' are just pieces of aluminum I drilled and tapped. I do the same thing with axle bolts for boring through them, except I cut up a front axle for that. All my **** is ghetto.

True. I'm just old school and would rather make my own tools and have everything manually operated.
You still hittin' up the .net track day?

I really wish I could man. My buddies had already scheduled for the 24-26. There was a possibility of me doing both weekends but with the . net day being friday and saturday instead of sat-sun i'd be getting home tuesday the 27th then i'd have to leave here thursday the 29th to come back down. If jennings would let me camp there during the week I could maybe swing it but I doubt they would be cool with me living there for 9 days. LOL

i like the goodridge concave bolts better than the galfer bolts.
wish i had some more. the galfer bolts are quite a bit heavier too.

i drilled mine by hand in a vise tho, much easier than on the bike.

Are the galfer bolts pretty much like stock?

Just another reason why I chose goodridge over galfer.

Should be getting the bike safety wired tonight.
