Winter has brought about Big Changes (on my bike)!
« on: January 28, 2010, 05:50:27 AM »

With it being Winter here in the States & the UK, alot of the posts, mods, & photos have slown to an almost halt. I wanted to show everyone my latest efforts, so I made a set of pics to show how I've changed my ride. I am one of the biggest harpers on Korider about wanting to see pics, so here we go.

Here's how it started. Busted fairings & in crap shape last Summer.

So I stripped her down & fixed the mechanical

Rejet after new exhaust, BMC, plugs, & new set of fairings (& alotta small mods like shield, grips, fender delete, lamps, etc).



I was content...for a while...until the cold set in


Blacked out reflector

Carbon triple cover

Then...3 weeks ago, I decided to tear it down & powdercoat...been wanting to for a while




Here we go!

Conti Road Attacks, waiting to be slapped on...


Bearings were replaced too...




I did the wheels & most everything in High Gloss Black...shifter, rear brake & pegs got a Satin finish for wear.



I think it turned out well....let me know what you think!

Very tidy mate. Love the colour scheme.

I'd mocked up something similar when I was eyeing up a red 2006 bike a little while back.

I was going to try for something similar...

Hey IC650.....What can I say but Great work mate! those wheels look like they've been done by a Pro!
When are you looking to get your hugger? And what do you think of the Road Attacks.....I think there great in the wet and dry! And plenty of tred.
