dmc41's very long build thread

This build thread won't be like a lot of the others on here... It will be long periods between mods, but I'll try to post a lot about my riding experiences in here.

STORY TIME!!!

So back in 2010 my roommate (and best friend for the last 11yrs) asked me to go to Cincinnati to look at a bike with him. It was a 2007 CBR600rr with 3,000 miles. It had a 520 chain conversion, -1/+2, a speedo healer, and steel break lines. He told the guy he wanted it, and the next weekend (during a level 3 snow storm) we went and got it.

On our way back


Over the next two year, he added about 7,000 miles to it with a few mods. He got a rear pitbull stand, a ebay front stand, tech spec tank grips, double bubble windscreen, some different grips and watsen flush mounts. Due to having to move to Chicago for work, he sold the bike to his gf's dad.

After only putting about 300 miles on it, he parked it and decided to sale the following spring.

So this past April I was able to buy the bike that my best friend owned!
After getting it home and unloaded.. (dead battery)


Went and picked up a battery and got her running, but still no insurance for a few days.. so I washed her up.



The rear tag bracket had broken off during his ride back from the dragon, so I ordered a FE from CBRHeaven



After that, I removed the sticker from the windscreen and rode the sheeeit out of her!

I didn't like the subframe, and the gas cap being silver...and I didn't like the stock exhaust color...

Before




Damn that's a lot of work!


After




And back together!

I went ahead and picked up some Engine Ice, and did a radiator flush. Runs 10 degrees cooler now!!




The first one is the first two flushed, the second is the third, and the third is the fourth and fifth flushes.

These came in the mail and few days later!


Lookin good!

Noticed the Sprocket and chain needed a cleaning...


and after



After a bunch of riding, I was getting a lot of numbness in my right hand. The grips that were on the bike were not stock, and extremely thick...


This came in the mail...




And with them on



haha and of course I noticed a speck and gave her another bath

Of course I'm a idiot, didn't look up how to put the grips on and just winged it.. Tried using soap and water, and ended up tearing the right grip...

Ordered replacements from Motomummy, and literally had them in three days!! Awesome service. I guess I was a little disappointed with STG, since it took over two weeks to get my grips, and they are located in Michigan... But I still got my product and will continue to order from them.

A Icon airframe Helmet came with the bike, and I really liked the helmet...but it was only a size L, and it was really tight on my forehead and ears.

So, thanks to the help from Moeman and Supper Bike Supply I was able to get this

Got some things in the mail!



Mostly just some bolts to replace the one's that were missing, or out of place...

But I got this for some much needed horsepower!


Ordered a RAM mount to hold my phone/GPS.


And of course I lose another bolt....

So far pretty well, but I haven't used it a lot. It has held up to some pretty high speeds. I'm actually going to order a piece the goes into the triple tree. It says on the RAM site that it only fits 2006 CBR's, but for 13 bucks I'm going to give it a try.

Went riding the other day up to old man's cave with 3 other riders. Two harley's and a cam-am. I was the only one wearing any gear, except the cam-am rider had on a quarter helmet... Anyways, I got bored of riding behind them, so I opened up on a straight and met them at the next gas station.. One of the harley riders asked me if I have every saw a dead biker body, cause that's what I'm going to be. I just gave him the troll face...asshat was wearing shorts and no helmet.

Did get this in the mail yesterday!

Bike's coming along well. It's hard to save for quality parts but in the end it is better than cheaping out and getting no-name parts. Save up for a quality slip-on and IT, you'll be pleased you did! Have to stress the customer service I've gotten from Bart at TST with my recent purchases, hands down no issues, even personal phone calls to help me during installation.

There's no such thing as too much CF.

I've decided to go with TST.

I really like the looks of the undertail, and I'm in love with the TOCE..

Triple ball mount finally came in. Easy install, but I recommend watching the YouTube video first.

Caudill41 nice updates to the bike so far! I noticed you're in south east Ohio, I am too for a while. I've been hitting up the bike night in Triadelphia (Cabella's) on Wednesdays (when it doesn't rain). And some people have been nice enough to show me some fun local roads. Hit me up if you want to go riding some time. I work in Wintersville (Steubenville area) and sleep in Yorkville. (From Mississippi only here temporarily for work).

I've been wanting to take a ride down that way on sometime. Everyone on ohioriders says it's a great place to ride. I work 7 days a week so one of these days I'll just have to suck it up and start my ride mid day.

Ordered from STG last Friday at 5... No email for shipping details, only got a email saying that it was processed.

Ordered from Motomumy last Saturday at 4... Received the product yesterday.

Lesson learned.
