I bought a wrecked 1998 Cbr900RR that had no plastics and a junk front end. I bolted up a 2006 GSXR1000 front end. I'll be installing Fat Bars with Tag risers this week and currently trying to finish up the GSXR tail piece.
I'm located in Southern Cali.

I had a local shop source the parts and bolt it up, so I don't know what was involved.

I bolted on the Fat bars and Tag risers today. I still need to clean up the wiring and get a new brake line.

Where you visiting from? I can give you some" must do rides" in LA county.... Mohulland to the RockStore and Angeles Crest to Nukems Ranch.
Unfortunately CHP has just imposed, a strict no speeding, crackdown in Mohulland Canyons.

I painted the frame with just the tank removed;satin black.

Dual sport tires from Metzler.

I was just looking at some Avon Distancias 160/60/17 they were are little narrow and short. I'd like to get something with same dimensions as my 180/55/17 any ideas? I plan on riding this bike to Cabo San Lucas,Mexico 1016 miles each way.
