Hey guys,

Here are some pics of the before, and a little work done tonight. Its a 2001 gsx-r600, I was not sure I wanted to streetfighter this bike but you guys convinced me and now I'm on my way. here are some pics:

Before:



Thats my dad's triumph and my brothers ex-500



After:







I already love the look compared to the fairings. Obviously wiring is up on the to-do list, headlight I'm using a 04 gsx-r750 headight housing, and tag bars, and risers are on the way.

A couple of questions though, on selling fairings. The front one is in good condition but the two side/lowers are rough, not cracked but rashed a bit. Would it be in my best interest to fix the rash then get them in primer? or try to sell them as is? I thought if somebody was replacing fairings then if they were in primer they could just be painted, but if I left them they would need to be painted and would be worth less. Thoughts? thanks for the great site and inspiration!

Primer them. Way better off prepping them for paint and selling them 'ready for paint'.

I thought the 600's after '00 came with inverted forks
no, I had both an '01 and an '02. They didn't switch to USD till the k4.

Good luck on the build! I'd sell the fairings as is.

I just sold Katana side fairings with factory paint and scratches for $305 U.S. on ebay. I set my reserve at $240 though so I didn't get lowballed. I already made $700 selling parts off that thing, almost half of what I bought it for. Love it. So just start your asking price at like $50 with a reserve price set and let people go nuts.

Update! Got the risers and bars installed!

Pics:









Now I need to figure out this mess,




order brake lines and figure out the headlight. A question about the brake lines, I was going to get two new SS lines for the front, one to each caliper instead of just one single new one, but now I'm reconsidering due to me being a cheapskate.

Is it worth it or are there any dangers running just a single SS brake line to the first front caliper? Thanks for the input!

Running a single line to the front caliper is fine, man. The two line thing is just for maximum brake performance, but if you can't hack it you can't hack it!

Plus if you get one line to run to one caliper (then have the second line that goes from caliper to caliper), you can always get a second long line later and do the 2-2 setup.
