With a 954 top clamp, you can drill out the top part and add clamps. Flip it over and you’ll see press marks on it (iirc) and you drill those out for the size of the riser bolts. Use spacers top and bottom and vois las. I’ve done it on at least 3 929’s.

Been bored all this days, my country just prolonged the quarantine for 15 days more

So I tried getting that new header shine again

Took off the exhaust wrap (old and crumbly) & this is what we have underneath


I started off with a 320W grit all the way to 2000W sand paper thinking it was going to be a walk in the park but NO. After some elbow grease I managed to do 2 of the header tubes and still have to do the 1500 and 2000 grit sand paper + de polishing compound



I also had a pair of bar end mirrors and they look sexy

Talking Re: Cafe/fighter Suzuki Bandit GSF600

Well.. back to the drawing board
a) Didn't like or felt safe with the welds I got the first try
b) It had an uncomfortable seat angle and height
c) the rear end felt incomplete

So here we are back at it, even though COVID-19 is still lingering around...


Took an old R1 front fender and cut it into shape with some brackets to give it a cafe vibe




This is the new seating height



New Ebay tacho, it works surprisingly well for how cheap it is

Gotta give props to my builder for making this possible @dom_vic_atelier

More things coming this month

Update day

First stage of the build is complete, next step is fitting 08-12 R6 rear shock to fix the soggy 20+years old bandit one and fitting the ducati monster seat cowl I got in the email.

Reduced the length of the chain guard
[url=https://www.customfighters.com/forums/vbimghost.php?do=displayimg&imgid=58774][/u

Made a rear fender (This was a pain to mount) it was fixed to the swingarm with 2 bolts in the lowest part for a clean look, also semi-prepped the new subframe for paint.


This is how she sits right now with the new brake light and everything spray painted just as a mock up.




I got the rear seat cowl and found some real CF 2x2 weave, trying to figure out how to make a mould of the part and make it from scratch in CF

POLL I need to decide what color to go with Spruce Mica metallic green or a really deep and metallic black?

As in the thread that Yan linked to, just get stuck in and make a mould. It's not that difficult - it can't be if I can manage it - and there are plenty of tutorial videos on Youtube to help. Just do it, it's fun!

Wax, PVA, Gelcoat then the fiberglass didn't want to stick to the gelcoat, i think mine is too thick even with a considerable amount of Resin it didn't want to soak it up.

Now i have a failed mould and the Ducati cowl stuck to it hahah
