Go to 2'45'' for entertainment


Are you going to get a black tank cover? I reckon it will look a lot better than red.
Even though you know it's going to happen, it's still unpleasant to see someone go down like that.

Personally, I feel the bike wants to run a little wide all the time. It's either me or there's a better setting for me and the bike together. I take it there wasn't too much damage if you carried on? What group were you in? You were about 5 seconds faster a lap than me at rockingham watching that.

As for the tank, I'll either wrap it in brushed aluminium or source a spare tank to strip. As with all the mods, I want to make sure I can go back to oem if I choose so I buy spares to hack apart if needed. Apart from the CNC triples, everything else is fully reversible.

It was quite some time back and I'm a fair bit faster now but it was fast group. The damage was just to the panels and I gaffer taped it up

Minor update.

I've spoken to a company that can powder coat the tail tidy once complete (hopefully this week!) and have been collecting a few other pieces to be changed from silver to black at the same time.

The tail pad is made and in the post from Poland so again, hopefully with me this week! I was sent a sneak preview of it:

Funny you mention

A small package arrived:

Carbott included a Dzus fastener but didn't drill or add anything as this was dependant on my own fitment requirements. I decided to go with more Dzus fasteners to save it being like death by bolts so set about positioning the plate and seat pad. The rear hole required a small adjustment towards the rear but it was only minor. Dzus recepticles were then positioned and tested before the holes were drilled.

In the image above, you can also see that I drilled the holes for the lights to mount on. I also trimmed the front legs of the seat pad as they weren't required. I still need to do some more trimming to allow the air duct pieces to fit in better. A fifth dzus fastener was added on the underside of the top section to allow the tail sections to fasten together at the top.

All fastened up (minus the air scoops):

From the rear - the lights work and are pretty secure despite no direct fastening at the moment. I may source a spare set and modify them in the future though.

After sorting this, I set about modifying the side fairings to fit - I don't have any pictures at the mo but will take some soon. The next part will be the final trimming of the seat pad before I do a full test fit of the entire bodywork prior to sending it off for re-finishing.

I've also been collecting a few other spares ready for powdercoating!

Thanks for reading!

I'm sure there will be in time but first priority is getting the panels etc sorted.
