636 fighter (Sorry you got asshurt Sully, crybaby bitch)

Ok well Im going to start working on the bike I guess, fairings are busted so I have to make them decent looking for now (dont want to do to much at the moment)

Cut the lower fairing down, might trim it a little more for a better flowing shape....front fender is cracked so i might cut that a little as well, found a minty orange on ebay imma try to get cuz I loooooove this color.

Good job on trimming the fairings down. It gives the bike a clean look with a sneak peek at the engine.

I agree with shift, the stock tail does look nice. Since your mid-pipe is fubar, any possibilities of a custom undertail exhaust, a shorty pipe, or an exhaust swap?

Id have to get a new can in order to do a belly exit style, this one is to large, I watched an auction for an Ixil undertail but I dunno if I really want that style or not..Im going to cut the can down to get rid of the rash/dings and try to get a new midpipe

The cut on the fairings look perfect. I would keep the stock tail but maybe paint it black and leave the orange everywhere else.

those ixil pipes are pretty sweet. my old boss had a z1000 with a set. sounded nice, and cleaned up the bike alot.

Same way I had mine originally except mine were like.. uh.. about 4 times that size

You looked into a Z1000 gauge bracket? If you end up doing a headlight with a flyscreen, a Z1000 gauge bracket might work perfectly. It's the same damn gauge after all.

I talked to the guys at the shop that helped with the kat and I think Im going to have them make me a custom bracket to house two of those lights but its going to be a functional ram air scoop as well........can't wait to see how it turns out......

oh and I won $266.75 at the casino about an hour ago :rock:
