Ah pals sorry to say but i've had to hand over the bike, did not sell it but im sending it off to be repaired, i am very bummed about this to be perfectly honest because it's simply because i do not have the time, i recently started doing my A levels (Further education) and it's sucking up all of my time, and english weather being english weather doesn't allow for me to work on the bike in my spare time.

The bike is going to be sent off to Poland with my brother and dad who export parts to there and they're handing it over to their friend who owns a moto mechanic shop, the only reason they really picked poland over england to do the repairs is because here we got quoted any where from £50-£70 an hour for working on the bike while in poland it equates out to around £20-£30.

I am actually very annoyed about this as i am a car breaker and part time mechanic and know for a fact i could've fixed it myself but not having a garage, and having no free time really f****ed me over.
Thank you all for your help regardless, i wil still be sure to visit these forums regularly and give help when i can, as well as posting pictures and videos of the bike when it's finally finished.

P.S. It is the Black/Silver '06 Model but virtually every fearing is scratched and i was thinking of plastic dipping it a different colour, could anyone tell me if that would work?
Also the muffler on my bike was completly destroyed and i was forced to buy one of those really bad fake carbon fiber ones for the time being.
Can someone link me a decently priced full exhaust system for the bike, i would gladly appreciate it :)

Rub the fairings down and then use primer , colour and clear coat ( check out YouTube for guides on how to do this ).
The hardest thing is finding a good colour match in my experience .
I used  spray cans and my ones came up OK .
Here is a link to how I did my ones (http://korider.com/index.php?topic=29303.0).
The cheapo carbon fiber jobbies are a bad thing . Joss or Upside Down will probably help you here .

The Y shape tube is a drain for the carb, Delete it mate

Hope this helps in anyway x

so what should i do with the Y shaped tube? really confused, also i've linked a picture of my right fairing which definately has seen better days, does anyone know where i can get the silver stickers for it? i was thinking of just stripping the stickers off (they're already peeling) and painting everything black with rattle cans (Montana Gold) and then applying the silver stickers back on to keep it a silver/black colour scheme bike, any ideas where i can get those decals/stickers?

Wouldn't worry about the larger silver sticker and just have the whole fairing the same color .
Like I said earlier , you'll be fine with rattle cans .
I think it would look much better being the same color (black) with red and white decals .
The fairing doesn't look that bad and with a rub down over the scratches and a good color match , it would look good and don't forget the clear coat .
Sid will give you good advice on spraying if he is around .

I was thinking of just spraying it black to be fair, you can’t really see all that clearly in the picture but the panel does have obvious scratches which is the whole reason I want to respray it, thank you very much for the eBay link those decals will definitely look better than the tatty silver sticker :)

Can’t wait to see how this will turn out, thank you all so much for your help :)
