Sup everyone,

I just wanted to share with you some pictures...I've been working on some mods to my bike and I'm finally finished with it. Took a little over a month of mostly late-night and weekend tinkering. Everything's on except the power commander (which I will install when I can afford a custom mapping, I'm all tapped out now, lol).

Here's a list of what I did:

1. Painted swing arm
2. Painted engine covers
3. Powdercoated passenger pegs, + LEDs from www.tripageled.com
4. Powdercoated gas cap from www.tripageled.com
5. Installed full G.P.R. exhaust system
6. Installed Rizoma rearsets
7. Installed Galfer SS brake lines, front + rear
8. Installed Rizoma rear brake reservior
9. Installed Woodcraft frame sliders
10. Changed oil + filter

In the process I learned a whole lot about my bike and mechanics in general. Before this summer I had never changed the oil in anything before, much less a motorcycle. This experience has taught me a whole lot and I appreciate my motorcycle that much more. This website and the people who frequent here have all been invaluable in the process. Thank you, 600rr.net!

p.s. you don't have to sign up to view just click "view slide show". it was easier uploading to kodak than to imageshack.

Bike looks Cool. I really like the powdercoating. I just cant see me spending that money w/o getting myself some better suspension first.

FYI: I found an easy way to upload to imageshack today. Just put all your pics in a zip file and upload. It save me a lot of time today.

Thanks for the positive feedback, guys...I found and asked about everything I needed to know right here on these forums.

Where did you get those rearsets???
They're Rizoma's. Check them out at www.rizoma.com. If you want to buy them, hit up www.pjsparts.com and tell him I sent you, real nice guy that can get anything Rizoma makes.

The swingarm and engine covers were spray painted and it cost about $10 to do. However, you get what you pay for. Thanks for the imageshack tip, I'll try that next time.

very impressive bro...great job! One question, when you did your case covers, did you leave them on the bike and what did you use to paint them?

I used Krylon BBQ & Grill Paint for both the swingarm and engine covers.

I took the engine covers off because I had a leak coming from the crankcase side, so I wanted to re-do the liquid gasket after I finished painting it. I'm sure you could just mask everything and paint it though.
