I don't see why not. The seat is fairly high. 35 inches if I remember right. I'm 5'8" and I tippy toe both feet but can plant one foot firmly. It doesn't bother me.

It's really deep engraving.

The levers also have the ASV logo on the front and back of the red levers. That's why I'm using the rubbers - not for grip!

I'll also be making my own custom stickers to cover the logos on the bars.

I've modified almost every aftermarket part on the bike, so far.

Working on the skid plate, but have bad news.

The engineering on this (Flatland Racing) skid plate is SHIT.

There are two holes on each side to lighten the plate. If they would have moved the lower hole over about 3/4 inch - it would allow access to the engine mounting bolt. Instead, it's just a hole in the wrong place.

I thought for sure the 2 holes would be in alignment with the 2 bolts. But no. Fuck me.

So, I can either use the skid plate as is - which looks too "bolt-on" for my taste -- or, I can chop holes for the engine sliders, and have a big gap on the rear of the hole.

I'll be chopping holes.

I sharpened a 10mm rod and put it in position to mark the new hole center. It's way off from the center of the existing hole.



Will get back to this soon.

Don't know the part numbers.

It wasn't that easy.

These levers were unavailable when I started. I had to call ASV and deal with them directly, and it took a couple of months. They fabbed up a set for me and I guess they're available now for everyone. Not sure.

I wasn't even able to order them from the ASV website at that time.

What did you use to sculpt your front fender?

Cutting wheel, hand file, sandpaper.

Go Pro installed.

I'll do a helmet mount later.




Attached to the upper triple bracket.




By rotating the upper thumbwheel, the entire housing comes off.

Dropped some weight today.

Removed the pillion pegs and hardware.




Need to make some type of covers for the brackets.




I'd also like to get rid of the ugly OEM mudflap.




So, I got another new fender and started chopping.




Unfinished hugger and bracket. Chopped, filed and sanded my ass off, but still have a lot more to do. Tried to get the shape similar to the chopped fender.

Started chopping holes in the skid plate for the engine sliders.

Found myself putting tape on a 3/8 inch rod to make it 10mm, when I thought- "WTF am I doing?"

Ordered a proper 10mm rod which will arrive in a few days.
