Default Roadkill the upgrades (this time with added planning)

Ever since Roadkill was Uhum! Finished....

..... upgrades have been in my mind

A) because the sun was out (somethings were rushed so I could play)
B) I'd expecting some teething problems (that'd need sorting this winter)
&
C) it'sa Fighter..... constant upgrades, tweeks, and glueing shit that fall off back on, are all part of it

those of yous who read the build thread will know these upgrades started with the addition of some exhaust wrap....


and after me streetfighter photoshoot, I planned on pulling her apart and sortin a few things...


first

the rushed things


1) the paint work
mainly cause it was never finished properly

2) polishing

I'd always thought a polished frame an swingarm would look ace against the bright orange.. but due to me being a lazy git with the vain hope of riding in the summer months I put this off only to find it rained most off the summer.. Bugger!

3) subframe

although 99% is hidden... the finish leaves alot to be desired. So, I gunna tidy it up.. Dunno why.. no-one except me sees it. it just gotta be done

4) undertray

cos it dont quite fit right.... Oh! and I managed to crack it being carlessly heavy handed

and if that aint enoph ta keep me busy*.......


the Upgrades

1) stopping power

hmmmm?.... well the single front disc, While fine pootling around town, leaves a bit to be disired at propper speeds.... and when i say a bit I mean... squeezing the break leaver appears to cause more a general ring clenching action than any actual slowing action provoking the classic HELP! HELP!! I'm gunna Die! reaction

2) tail lights

due to using an LED setup behind a tinted plate... in even the weakest of british sunshine they invisible... and the brake lights aint much better

3) Battery (isolator)

it's gone flat twice and as I have dismantle the tail to get it out I wanna try stop this happening

4) Battery (charging/tender plug)

see 3

5) numberplate light
errr..... never got round to fitting it...

the shit that fell off

errrrr.... welll.... um..... nothin' yet (but watch this space
)

then anything that takes me fancy....

the start of all of this was penciled in my diary** for tommorrow but as Motorcycle Live is on at the NEC and I just got back from dropping Roadkill off this has been postponed for a week or so.. but that aint gunna stop me posting this long winded post anyway

*Damn! I got the buildoff bike to squeeze some time into too
**who am I trying ta kid..... crayoned on the back of a fag packet

As long as I fall, I don't hit the ground. As long as I fall, I'm safe & sound.
