I had a thread like this not too long ago, but i think it was lost when the server was having some issues. I'm looking to get some resources/links/suggestions back so i can start shopping again.

Since i am T minus 1 week from getting my nice big fat student loan... i need to go shopping for some back-to-school bike parts. :D

So im holding a contest for the resident posters at customfighters.com
Contest is: If you suggest a part, and i buy it....you get mad props when i get it installed :LolLolLolLol: .......and a nice thread with pics. . . . Maybe i can arrange to pay the admins here for some CustomFighters.com stickers to be mailed out to you too.



Here's what im in the market for.

1. Dual round headlights
2. Top yolk for riser bars
3. Riser bars (preferably Tag or Renthal, im open to anything though)
4. Steering Damper (one that fits the new yolk with riser bars)
5. Digital Cluster (nothing uber expensive $300-ish,) or a custom mounting bracket for the existing 900rr cluster (it sits too low right now)
6. Something else that is about $100-200, that im not thinking of...


Here is my blank (well i'd say half finished) canvas.





^^^see how low it sits? .....it's gotta come up for the new headlights, show more bare fork.





Should be enough pics to give me (or you) some inspiration....

Links/vouches/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Good luck on the contest :LolLolLolLol:

haha, i thought I was the only one who did that.

I'd say headlights first.

your bike looks sic with the clipons, but it might look uber-mean with a set of risers and drag bars. just depends on what riding position your are goinng for.

if your looking for a nice tripple clamp with risers and room for a damper (gpr ;) ) check out http://www.fullthrottleinc.net/

im very excited your going to get some round headlights on that piece. its gonna look so much better. if you get dual rounds, what size will they be??? im guessing 5" or 6" ?? i look thru piles and piles of headlights at work thinking of streetfighters all the time. we have an extra huge single round that i think is like 9" :LolLolLolLol:

awesome , thanks a million.

the dual rounds will be smaller ones, to show more fork. Probably 5" each. I've seen larger duals, but i don't like the look at all.

how are gpr dampers? any good?

i will check all those links.

and yes, im happy to be ridding myself of the R1 headlight too.

from all the research i did on dampers before, i found GPR is very good. Thats what i actually bought. i just havent mounted it up yet. that'll come at the end of this coming winter (ugh).

I also found one for REAL short money. cheaper than i can get at the motorcycle shop i work at including my discount, even with shipping! :D
