Custom painted fuel tank.
GT250R white and red side panels.
Accessory seats.
SV650 Coils.

Extra earth lead.
Greggs customs flush mount front led indicators
MTC Exhaust

Integrated tail light
Rear luggage rack
Updated rear caliper

and some nice sticky dunlop Q3's

Nice! congrats!

How do you like those front axle sliders? I posted them before on the forum but Cloud said they'd be too week because our front axle bolts are small and making them hollow isn't ideal.

The sliders are fine, its still a solid steel axle there are just small M6 threaded hole for the pucks to screw into, they aren't any deeper than the fork bottom is wide so it doesn't affect the strength of the axle in any way.
I'm dubious about how much protection they will offer in the event of an accident but that remains to be seen.

Yeah, I like them but I'm kinda unsure. Those axles take a lot of mostly unsprung shock and impact, as well as carrying the weight of the bike, dealing with the gyro forces of the wheel, and general axle duties. Realistically, drilling the ends and putting in small bolts is unlikely to make the axle a weak point - you've probably never seen the axle break in a collision scenario. But while I'm sure it's almost perfectly fine, there's still something that would worry me about drilling out your axle

Looks brilliant - I like the combination of fairing and straight naked bars.

I like the idea of some decent calipers too - just cleaned my brakes, but they are still not releasing as well as they should, and touch very slightly when pushing the bike around, especially the back.....

Anyway, great looking bike, enjoy it!!

Love the bar end weights. So clean!

No mirrors?
