I'm new here, but here's what I'm starting with. Already bought more in parts than I paid for the bike. I'll start the pics as I progress. Only have the upper and lower fairings removed at the moment.

because money isnt something just thrown around in my life. not to say i'm poor by any means, but i have to have a reason to spend it. and i was asking the reason why he spent the money.
as for my bike, if you really want an explanation on all the mods i will write it up especially for you why i modded every piece the way i did. just let me know.

Yeah, I picked the bike up pretty cheap. Only had 2,600 miles on it too. Smacked a curb once and dumped from what I saw. The right fork was bent about 1/3 in., but the replacements are already on their way.

The way you said it sounded like "why did you mess up a nice bike" when the same thing could be asked of you......who cares, people take brand new bikes and cut them up because they want to

Stripped a wee bit more off the bike.



I ordered the following parts:

Exhaust - Akrapovic Evolution w/carbon fiber muffler (I was told supposedely it was the last one left in the country and they are not going to import them anymore. Maybe that's bullshit though)

Rearsets - Gilles Tooling model#OPGTRSH03 (they're black and those shits are nice.)

Undertail - Easycarbon model# FGHO-954RR-UT

Handlebars - Rocky Mountain part# Longhorn 6061 Big Bar CR Low Bend Black

Brake/Clutch Levers - Yana Shiki part #A3074ABA3075AB

Grips - from Roaring Toyz (not sure of manufacturer) Diamond cut billet grips

Headlight - putting on a V-Rod light with a bit of modification

Wheels - RC Components Eclipse - Savage

The paint is going to be done by Jim Munroe (www.jimmunroe.com) of Rhode Island. Awesome artist.

As for right now, the UPS man is my best friend in the whole wide world.

I don't think we understand your original statement.
My bike was bone stock before I fightered it... I sold the plastics to fund the project and even made a profit. No cheaper way to do it!

EXACTLY! i'm the kinda guy that likes to use innovation instead of endless amounts of money... i think thats what fighters are more about than anything. if you take a brand new bike and strip it and sell the plastics to fund it... hell yea! but it's hard to spend 6 or 7k on aftermarket stuff that you NEED on your bike.
anyways i guess it just came out wrong... i apologize.
well the build looks like its goin real well so far! keep up the good work!!!

Man, I keep going back and forth on that. At first I said yes, then I changed my mind. The wheels are black, but have some polished aluminum on them. The forks are getting black anodizing, but the triple clamp is going to be polished. So I'm thinking maybe leaving the swing arm as is to balance out the bike. It's a dilemma.

One question I do have is what hell I should do with those air scoops. I was just going to cut them back. Maybe you guys have a different idea. I don't like just leaving them there, and I don't want to put the covers back on.

Yo, the bike is gonna be sick guys. With his funds, my wrenching, and his ideas, this will be one bad ass RR. More parts need to start comin in so we can get this shit rollin!!! And so I can have more room in my garage again!

By the way, Goat is my brother in law.
