Dave, trust me getting rid of the bike was mentioned by the ol' lady should we find ourselves in a bind with the home projects...We'll see how that goes, but I assure you I will not let her go without kicking and screaming.
Austones, here's the only pic of the rear I have. I did try losing the stock tail light but without a custom fender I wasn't really thrilled about the look. I actually like the look of the stock light, but I may throw it in the mix and have it painted to match the bike.
The bike was stock when I bought it. Year one mods include:
- Lowering Spring
- ISO Grips
- Integrated Signal mirrors (shaved front signals)
- Side Plate mount (shaved beaver tail)
- Led rear mini bullet signals
- Cobra power flo intake
- Cobra tuner
- Cobra swept pipes (baffles out)
- Chrome grill
All in all, in doing this all myself I spent about $1300...not too bad. Winter mods were going to include chrome wheel exchange, polish forks, and paint the calipers and differential cover, BUT all that is being put on hold due to the ol' lady and I purchasing a new house. Priorities brothers. Hope I did you all proud with the few mods I've got so far.
NICE!!!! how do you like the lowered spring? good ride? That's about the only thing I haven't done yet
The ride is great. The only thing I'd tell anyone to look out for, if you have the T-mod AND the lowering spring, and you have after market "stud" style rear signals, make sure the stud isn't going to rub against your tire. Mine did and thankfully I noticed right off the bat. It was either take them off and trim the studs down, or ride with the suspension 1 up. I chose the latter for the sake of ease.
