Good luck! cant wait for pics
For the time being, I'm keeping it stock. I've tossed around ideas about shortening/thinning it, but I just have too much work to do before that. I'd like to someday make my exhaust come out under the engine, then have a much leaner looking tail, but that'll be down the line.Leaving the tail or looking into doing something custom? Interested in doing this to my bike and just looking at ideas.
Haha, I know, right? That cable is off an '08. I have a new '03 cable I'll be putting on soon... properly and cleanly, I think I'm going to run it through the frame a bit.tuck that clutch cable in!!!
Looking good so far!I'm about to start the first steps in streetfighting my bike. I'm going to take as many pictures as I can and really keep up with the project. Here's how she sits right now:
-'08 Front End
--1,+2 Driven Sprocket Conversion
-Killswitch for Headlight & Third Eye
-Killswitch for Running Blinkers, Taillight, and Plate Light
-Lots more little stuff...
I had my right mid-fairing get blown off on I-94, which took with it the ram cover and a chunk of the front cowl. Perfect excuse to streetfight, right?
Here's what's first on my list:
-Painting midpipe and headers high-temp flat black
-Switching from 2 H7 HID's to one high/low H4 beam in an 8" round vintage housing
-Moving ignition position
-Relocating ECM onto triple tree
I'll update with pictures and status whenever I make progress!
Hmmmm, knew the conversion seemed too good to be true!It SEEMS straight-forward, but there were some hitches...
The bearings were a bitch. Tough to get out, tough to get in. Used a race press from AutoZone, and it ended up working.
Also, the bolt lock on the forks doesn't work after the conversion. As far as I know, there is no way around this.
The last thing was contact on movement. It hits the ram cover fairings as well as the gauge cluster. Removing a little bit of material took care of it.
All in all, GREAT mod... well worth the pain. Good luck!
Yep, same here. Didn't even notice it was broken until I found out that feature had ever existed, which was a while after I did the mod anyways! Not a big loss.By bolt lock on the forks, do you mean the steering lock that's activated from the ignition barrel?
It's the forks, but it's real easy to do some trimming.Is it the forks themselves that rub the clocks or is it the brake lever/master cylinder?
