Thumbs up Re: 2007 Gixxer 1000 Build

Did some work this weekend, just to try and get the bike street-worthy as quickly as possible. I got my radiator off of eBay and it's solid, no leaks. Due to shortage of funds, I just mounted the stock headlight and taillight. I learned a lot about the bike while putting it back together. I think I understand this machine more now than I ever would have had I not wrecked it.




Outstanding items:
  • Shifter-side rearset and bracket are both bent so the shift rod is scraping the frame. That needs to be replaced.
  • I have no levers yet. They've been ordered and will hopefully be on their way soon!
  • The headlight will be replaced with two 4" rounds.
  • The dash may (hopefully) be replaced by an Acewell 4000-series cluster which I will mount in the plastic tank cover.
  • Eventually I want to have the frame and swingarm coated in spray-on bedliner, but I'm still doing research on that (weight, rigidity, cost).
  • I plan to replace the stock clip-ons with Woodcrafts when I have the funds. I'd like more adjustability and the ability to remove the clip-ons without removing the top triple.
  • Tail plastics.
  • Re-cover the passenger seat, to include an embroidered logo. I have an inside connection for this one.
  • Paint. All matte black.

Talking Re: 2007 Gixxer 1000 Build

I just got my new tail plastics in from Hong Kong. They cost me $111 and fit much, much better than I expected! This bike is coming together well, considering I have a lack of funds to finish it at the moment. Oh, and it's possible that my forks are tweaked because the front end doesn't feel exactly right. It rides well, but there's vibration and the preload feels messed up even though I never adjusted it. Anyway, here are the new plastics:

Absolutely! I was skeptical as to what I would see in the mail, but I cannot overstate my satisfaction with the parts and the price. If anyone's interested, here's the seller and his eBay store:
