I decided to start a new thread instead of continuing to talk about my bike in my introduction thread.

Here's what I started with

here's a pic of what it looked like towards the end of last year


here it is a few weeks ago:

Since that last photo, I have installed the carbs and pods, painted the headers in high temp black and switched the bars out to some black ones i had laying around

Looks real good! Two questions...... can you see at night with that headlight? How loud is that exhaust?

to answer you seriously though, the headlight seems ok, I have both bulbs running at all times. I haven't had a chance to ride it in total dark on a country road by myself yet.
the exhaust is obnoxious. I only have a 2 1/4 x 5 baffle in it with hardly any packing (the header is 2 1/2 so that tells you how little the baffle does)

That bike is tight! Magazines always gave them great reviews. Glad to see you much improved upon the somewhat blah stock look. Keep us posted!

When I get my new triple clamp crown I'll probably go through six or seven handlebars before I get it right.

I picked up a set of 05 R1 end cans with race baffles today for $75. I already shaved all the heatshield and mounting brackets as well as sprayed them with primer. Also fabricated a Y-pipe. I won't get a chance to work on the bike again until thursday night (when my jet needles finally come in) to finish up the midpipes.

Damn dude, you mean you were dealin with people about the bars before you even had them?
Nope, sold and shipped same day I got them (technically they didn't get picked up by my UPS driver until the following morning though). All my UPS comes before 930 or 10am.

What? trying to make me look bad? :LolLolLolLol:

It was a black painted D&D, if I did have it, you wouldn't have wanted it anyway-sounded like crap :)
