Love the detailed work Steve. Subscribed
How far back have u taken the pegs? Looks like u've gone aggressive...backwards plenty. Can u sit up with your feet on them and post a full shot seated? Cheers (I know this one's a bitch but I'll still ask u to blast those black air fins and valve covers and get the metal out) 🤩

Vik, the pegs are not very far from stock placement mate, but i will get a pic for you so you can see. :)

Ok great, that looks fairly upright. I'm guessing the two mounting points on the chassis are stock. (Going with the current seat or taking away some bulk?)
The Dorsoduro has a sit up factory stance, I'm taking them backwards and up coz the bike's street now... gotta mate these adjustable set off a Panigale v4 and it's not a plug & play from any angle. The stock pegs bottom out way before full lean.

Vik, the stock peg mounts on the GSX frame are completely different, they use a one piece rider/pillion mount! i have drilled the frame and had inserts added.

I'll look for it if it's in this thread coz most likely to go that route, haven't got there yet, it's gotta wait until the seat pan & sub's in place.
Thx a ton buddy 🍻🙌

Thx Steve. This is a rectangular ms frame if I'm not wrong, you've added cylindrical inserts across the frame and welded them around the diameter both sides (end to end) ?
Vik, Frame is a mash up of square and round tubing as stock, but i have added bits of both to it for bracing/strength, pic is of stock frame

As part of getting things so i can do bits and pieces myself, I have ordered a pillar drill and table vice, coz i am pissed off with drilling holes out of true!!
should be here in a couple of days, then i will get on with mounting the number board brackets.

got the bottom number plate-h/lamp mount cut to ruff shape, needs more shaping and a chamfer cut for the h/lamp mount to sit into (green box)
it is also going to act as the steering lock stops, little bit to remove to the shape of the stops on the frame.
