my girlfriend decided to go spend the night at her sisters tonight so i did what im sure any of you would do in my situation... push your bike in the elevator and roll it in to your appartment to work on it:party-smiley:


she would kill me if she found out so i have to be all cleaned up by the time she gets home tomorow.

heres a link to my old build thread,

www.customfighters.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1845714#post1845714

since then i have done some small things like fixing the oil leak and a couple nights ago i replaced the garbage ebay HID with some garbage autozone offroading lights but i have not finished wiring them yet since the harness has been sitting in my living room waiting to be shortened.

went to radioshack and home depo a couple hours ago and now i have about a hundred dollers worth of $5 parts, two steaks, two beers and a cigar waiting for me to get started.

here is how she stands as of now


and all the parts waiting for me


the battery box i made that i have to get mounted someway other than with zipties


and ofcourse the beers, im hyped to try the raspberry stout



things i plan on getting done tonight.
1. make a new seat,
1.5 build a new taillight into the new seat
2. clean up/tuck wiring harness
3. re-route the carb intake tubes to the airbox
4. replace the shit gascap
5. wire up the headlights
6. splice my trailtec speedo in to the harness instead of running wires to the battery like the retard that i bought the bike from did
7. fab up a undertail piece to make it look pretty


we will see howmuch i auctually end up doing but those are the plans.... STAY TUNED:rock:

We both have the same "cheapest keyless gas cap." :drinks:
At least your bike is a CBR so it actually makes sense.

Steak looks good.
Battery box looks good.
Never had a stout but would like to try one. I've heard oatmeal stouts are good.

Admittedly, I'm wondering where that hinge is going to go.
And props for putting it in an elevator and bringing it inside. :D

the first order of buisness is to get the new taillight started. the bike came with an intagrated taillight and i planned on replacing it with a led lightbar from custom dynamics but then i decided i could build one for way cheaper.

then i decided i would just bastardize the one i have in to somthing cool since im a cheap bastard.

keep in-mind that this is about to be the farthest thing from DOT approved you can get

step one, find red stanley 12V32/3CRBhn bulbs to replace the old bulbs, heres a hint, you cant...

so do what i did and make your own! heres the guide

i just kinda winged the ammounts but you get the idea, here they are drying


starting on sodering the connections, good bye buttsplices


best fucking tool ever, highley recomended for electrical projects




aaaaaaaaannnnn i dropped the bulb trying to do a second coat :oops:

stouts are the best, i love malty beer, hoppy ipas are overrated. living in seattle its tough to find anything other than ipas everywhere:fu:

my new gascap will be going on later tonight, i had to get a new ignition allready when my key got stuck in this cap so now its just annoying me everytime i ride it.

you will see what the hinge goes to in good time

10:41, started on the seat

goddamn this sucks, dont take your powertools for granted guys. im 6'1" 220 lbs, workout every day and work a physical job and this still sucks. AND this is the softest wood money can buy, il blame it on the 40 year old saw i stole from my mom



not looking forward to cutting out these rounded corners. and the 90* cuts were enough of a bitch


i bought this saw for the project but guess what i noticed when i got home and tried it out? see that little ridge along the back of the blade? yeah, it cant cut anything wider than the blade before it stops.



also the blond ale was pretty dissapointing. il crack open the other one in a sec.

i might have earned a cigar after these corners are all cut out

painted my nails:moped_mazeguy:

spraypainted my nailgun nails that is, you will soon see why


using a drill to cut slits is far from optional, i miss living at my parents house with a full garage at my disposal


the grilfriend might notice thisone...:oops:


it fits, now do i try my luck at bending it a little and risk having to start over?
ideally i would have used a cuttingboard type plastic but i couldnt find any bigenough and i couldnt use two and connect them cause of the way i was doing things. ohwell, chances are il bob it soon enough when my girlfriend never rides with me

the bulbs look like shit, i think i used toomuch water. ive basicaly painted them with fooddye and im hoping it will stain them. either that or il go out and get some vht taillight paint tomorow.

heres a comparison between the mixed dye in the back and the plain fooddye in the front



started wrapping the intersections of my harness with electrical tape and i realized i like it way more than the shitty corrugated

i diddnt want to wrap my whole harness in electrical tape and make it all nasty and sticky and i was pissed autozone, radioshack and homedepo diddnt sell anything close to heat shrink that would work for this but i found a solution. i started wrapping it in a plastic bag and using electrical tape over it


looks like stock:rock:


now i wish i had thought of this before wrapping the turns...


this forum has the worst selection of smilies, how am i supposed to express my true feelings with things like these:spam1::dancingmonkey::mackey::mm:?

out with the old and in with the new. it kinda looks like crap but thats what $20 on ebay gets ya. i might have to paint it matte since im thinking about doing a racing stripe but thats a project for a different day


having some proper tools would be nice, i cant find a tapemeasure or right angle thingie so this is my best guess at a center line


boosters installed (jk those will be taillights eventualy)


decided so soak the wood for a couple hours to see if i can bend it to shape without cracking it


and i thought i should share my new riding gear. my mom is an avid goodwill shopper, she found the vest for like $20. it is covered in holes from old patches and smells like cigarettes but i dont care. and shes happy im not riding in a hoodie anymore


time for a steak and porn break. il be back soon to finish tackling the wiring

Don't cum, you'll lose motivation lol.

Also, damn you need a jigsaw.
Or a router, but routers are for anal-retentive people... Jigsaws for the win.

yeah i know. my girlfriend is allready mad about the ammount of tools i have in our appartment


so i ended up scrapping the wood seatpan and redoing it with a cuttingboard. now i just have to figure out a strong way to join the two halves.

wiring harness is done and on its way back in to the bike

taillights are not dyed correctley so il find some paint tonight
