Upload your pictures to a hosting service, I use photobucket, there are plenty of others, copy/paste the image code here.
Good luck, and post up if we can help.

Top of the page you will find the thread tools button cilc then click subscribe to thread then you get the choice to have emails sent direct to you or not once selected cilck subscribe!

As for pics if your using a tablet i suggest useing postimage just google it the sighn up to an account then you can load you pics to that web site just cilck brows and it will let you look through your files then you can just copy and past the image code sraight in to your post i use hot link one cos it gives a bigger pic and people prefer to see the pics when looking through quickly.

If you need any help just ask i will try my best to help.

Got to say im not a fan of the streachd swinger seems point less on a 600 its not like its a drag bike or even got that much power one thig a 600 has going for it is its lightness and handling and you loose that with that swinger. If you actually want to ride the bike like its supposed to be riden the lose the swinger but if you just want it cos it looks cool then keep it.

Either way good start and im interested to see where you go with it.

I did that on sketch book pro its a app for andriod. And I hear you on the swingarm I actually bought the bike to practice drifting on it. Longer wheel base helps with the bike not sliding out to far to fast. The bike was cheap so im not afraid to dump it you know. But I really want to do a build so im going for a drift/streetfighter lol if that makes sense.

So the plan is to bore it out a bit do a +4 on the back sprocket and a -1 on the front hopefully it will have enough balls then . So far im think im going to start with the back and move towards the front I didnt like the small stock wheel so I orderd the cbr900 rear wheel and I read somewhere on here the the vf500 hub or what not brings the chain in closer to fit in the f2 swingarm so just waiting on parts for now.

Would you know which inverted fork setup I could do for the front I heard gsxr is the way to go but does that mean the steam would fit the f2 neck or just the forks?

I did a rough paint job just to see if id like my paint scheme I kinda want a rough military look but im not sure on the olive drab green

dude yours looks in a lot better shape than mine when i got it. sounds like somebody rode the hell out of it tho if nothing is working like it should. if i was you i'd get all the operational issues sorted out so its in running shape, then commence to cutting it up. what kind of problems are you having?

the hub swap may help with the wider rear but these bikes dont deal well with much bigger than a 160 with the stock swinger. watching to see how this turns out

yea the pics I have of it on here don't look to bad till youre actually next to it. and you are right I should of sorted out broken stuff first what can I say I got excited and started ripping shit apart lol. heres the list of shit that's broken or don't work so far

front brakes ....stripped out reservoir screws
rear brakes seized up
most of the gauges don't read anything
shock adjustment stripped out
just about ever screw/nut is either stripped out loose or not the right one
butchered wiring theres wires everwhere
chain/sprockets no good

the bike read 40000 when I picked it up brought it home realized the odometer line was pulled out and rusted to shit so who knows how many miles are on it

so this is going to be a long project just orderd the rear sprocket$100 hub/carrier $15 and am currenty bidding on the 900 wheel hopefully around $70 with shipping

You can snag a harness for $50 off eBay. Maybe less if you're lucky. Good news is if you fighter it you'll be getting rid of that giant dash so don't worry about the gauges. If you decide to stick with em I've got a dash I'll let go of cheap. Don't get discouraged tho, as long as you can make it go vroom then there's always hope

I might do that just pickup a new harness make my life easier thanks I wasnt going to use the guages so I wasnt to worried about them not working . Do you just not put any gauges on yours or did you do a swap or aftermarket?

On the desktop it's in the "userCP" up top where you click "log out" look all the way to the left side. Also under "quick links" to the left of "log out" there is the "subscribed threads" to click on...
