Here is my build, taken from another forum i post on... i'll update both as i go
it's a little basic for now, and soon to be improved... time stamp pic to be taken tonight of my current progress

I traded my dirt bikes over for this diamond in the rough a few years back.
Originally born as a 1992 CBR600F2, she was then converted to a drag racer until the end of her hey-day.
The guy i bought it from was a tinkerer, but had never made it road legal. As far as i can tell, over the span of two years he:

dropped a 98 f3 engine, carbs, and incidentals in
re-routed the ram air
opened the pair valve
changed gearing (I've been meaning to count those)
new electrical system
new rectifier (tourmax?)
new ignition (haha, He told me that when i bought it :yikes clean title thank god)
new forks and shock (F2)
new fairings (are these from an F1?)
I'm sure theres more going on internally and in the electrical system, because all of the emmision checks have been cut, twisted, and removed. I just haven't had the chance to really open the engine up.

Poor bloke, the bike scared his wife and she made him sell it :rofl
Many thanks be to the motorcycle gods! :happyangel:
I knew I would have killed myself on that dirtbike anyway :p

here are a few pics of when i bought her, i wish i knew the original paint... the title just says green :'(



My friends called her the hulk because of her green girth... poor baby

And here she sits in my shop waiting for the attention i always promised to give her.

And this is the list...
Shorty pipe (chop saw, rivet gun, viola )
Devil eye headlight halos
Blacked out headlight
HID
Integrated tail light (halo turn signals/running lights... LED brake light)
Repsol plastics (turn signals removed)
White TSR frame sliders (cut)
White Swing arm spool sliders
Orange rims, fender, chain guard
Black headers (done)
Black frame (done)
2006 F4i suspension (red bull can shock can cover, of course black horse energy instead ;P)
Remote engine immobilizer (happens to be remote start as well... On a motorcycle? Oh well, just because I can )
Integrated mirrors
Double bubble windshield
Black billet gas cap
Lower forks maybe
F4i suspension link to raise it up again
Digital speedo (F4i)
Street fighter headlight for every now and again
Re-upholstered seat
New throttle lines
Control mount helmet lock
Orange shorty clutch & brake levers
New 170 tires, grips, decals, etc...


most of it is here and all but the street fighter head and f4i cluster are ordered, those are for when she feels like taking the top off :blush
and so begins the teardown!



definitely not how you did yours bambam and kerosene

painted the frame already, shining the swingarm


Flat black headers to be wrapped perhaps?
They were working on their muscles while they finished drying

One more look at that big hunk of unnecessary weight and noise supression


:joker I will warn you, some of this stuff is pretty squiddy, but rest assured i am a attentive, level headed rider... educated risks only ;)

Doin' it' fo' tha' sho' ty's!



sadly the guy bought the pipe from someone who totaled their bike... the edge is pretty gnarly
that's all of the pictures for now... i have several projects going at once, and i will put them up as i finish them
ride for me for now guys

New goodies in this weekend!

Another free tire and heavy duty tie downs


And some extras came in


So i decided to see what my handlebar looks like before i painted the rest


Then i grabbed the paint guns



And i painted me some accessories!


And even squeezed in some time to finish my frame and give the rims a good base coat

Let me know what you guys think about this as a speedometer/ odometer instead of a cluster behind my streetfighter headlight

That sounds cool... but as much of a gadget guy that i am, i could never trust technology that much. I still can't make myself use the back-up camera.

New/old F4i shock arrived last night, along with some LED's. I need to come up with some cool ideas for those... (10) red and (10) random color cycling.

I put the old F2 shock next to the F4i for a comparison just in case anybody wanted to see the difference... the dogbone was about 2" shorter than my old one, but this bike was waaay low

I'll post my remarks on how it changes the feel and geometry of the bike after the final build...

I went back to a 160/60/r17 on the back from a 170/60/r17
The lean feels more natural to me on a stock size... and the new pirelli doesn't read skinny enough to notice

got some time last night to place my tank, seat, and old fairings on one side to check the ride geometry, and i must say that it is much nicer, ducati lean almost, but no cigar :p

btw, the first iteration of this bike is going to be black with the og front, next will be new repsol paint plastics, then comes the streetfighter headlamp when I'm happy with it... HID's all the way ;)
