Hi.

Awesome forum-site! :drinks:

I`m rigging my GSXR for a better riding position (backpain victim:jpshakehead.sml: ).
I wouldnt call it a 100% streetfighter build but its close to. Anyways, this site is the shit when fightering a motorcycle, and I`ve been searching around some time now, looking for good fighter-sites.
I take my hat off to all you serious builders out there. It`s an artform, it really is...but I`m no artist.

About my build, I got a CNC yoke convertion kit from topyokes.com and I have removed fairings, thats about it currently. Waiting for longer brakelines (that I forgot to order with the yoke in the first place :angry: )
Been looking around for a good solution for bellypan on this bike, not quite sure what to do with that yet...
And the coolant expansionbottle, where to put that ugly thing..??

The bike:

I don't believe it matters, the radiator pushes or pulls the coolant to your bottle through heat expansion and contraction when cooling. Most have it close to the radiator but the factory puts a lot expansion containers in the tail.

Yes exactly, thats what I`m aiming at. Hiding it in the tail
Why would you want to hide it ? Oo
The overflow bottle could be a really cool feature if it's done right :) some people even got more then one ...

Haha, you are right, its cool to mount a Jim Beam bottle on the bike, but it would only be a thing the police will stop you over for. Dont want that ;)

Yes it is. And thats why it should be paintbrushed in the same color. So that the picture isn't seen before light hits it just right... but it wont be on my current oroject. Im working on the zombiebike now... going for a dark armygreen'ish color.
