Progression Rebuild: 2008 CBR600 after highside (Lots of photos)

Back in July I had a highside and damaged my CBR pretty badly.

Pictures once back in the garage.



Torn down what was needed.



Powercoating my subframe



Installed powdercoated subframe



Finally fixed all my issues with Exhaust Servo/Speedo/Starter/Coolant

Now I get to attempt to make these fairings fit from CBR fairings.

This is how she sits right now, let me know your honest opinions











Thanks for reading. Please comment! :)

As far as i can tell, youve done a great job. Personally, a little too much black on the rear of the bike but that doesn't matter.

Keep up the good work. Good luck and be safe.

I think the black looks good mate. But i'd probably do the lower fairings too. Oh and the front guard. And the tank.
Nah seriously Cyclist, she looks awesome.

Lol, why did I know someone someday would ask that. I have a whole extra room built off of the garage and for some ungodly known reason me and a friend one weekend....well let's just say + old hardwood floors out of my house ended up in the garage.

Yep :)

Friend had all the equipment at his shop.


Sadly I sold this bike today because of just too good of a deal :)

Looking forward to a new 2011 CBR600RR next week maybe

Honest opinion, it looks good, not a big fan of the exhaust. And your bike didn't look that bad after a high-side, seen so much worse.

True, I wish I had a picture of it on the track. Eek plastic flying wasn't pretty. Landed on the top of the tree.
