Well I've been collecting bits for the last few weeks for my second round of mods. Did them over the last two days as I was in no rush. Few pics and a vid then details.


My workshop, laptop at the ready, comfy workshop chair.


Exhaust hanger


Exhaust hanger


Strips and Kanji decal


LED's with brakes on (handy glove :p)


Tail light only

(Not sure if vid is up and working yet, still waiting for youtube approval)

Ok details.

Zartans excellent new exhaust hanger! I sprayed it matt black, think it came out great. Really cleans the back of the bike up! Plus takes about 1kg off total weight :p Can highly recommend this bit of kit, was a breeze to install and makes the bike look lots less cluttered. Massive REP for Zartan on this.

Targa fender eliminator. Good bit of kit, aweful instructions. The content of the instructions is fine its more the delivery. No pics and a pretty poor exploded diagram means there is a little guess work. Also the ABS trim bits that you stick on at the end are crap. Might also replace the number plate light with a smaller one in each corner. LOVE the final look, 100% more sports bike, less scooter.

Ninja kanji decals... not 100% on these ones yet, either keeping them, binning them or getting smaller ones and running them vertically lower down, similar place to the busa kanji.

White reflective rim stripes. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL AFTER DRINKING THE NIGHT BEFORE. At night, while moving or from a distance these look fine. Get up close and you can tell I had a bad case of the shakes. Considering one of three things, leave them as is, remove them and replace with black ones that are reflective at night (and hides my DT's), or getting new ones with the special applicator tool for alco's.

After brutally destroying the ninja tank protector through my own stupidity I've replaced it with a new one. Still not 100% happy with this one, its as if nothing wants to adhere to the tank?!?!

Finally, secondry set of LED brake lights and tail light. These are waterproof all in one 24 led strips. Pretty happy with how they look, not 100% on the way I've installed them, but time will tell if they stay on. I have a back up plan if they come off anyway. All wiring is soLdered, yes thats right americans, there is a L in the word solder not soder :p

Let us know what you all think.

Nah to start collect bits for round 3 :p :p

Hey felix, looks hot. great job, Its a good measure to clean stuff with alcohol to properly remove dirt/grime and promote adhesion... ;D or yours just isnt sticky enough... i used a progrip and it stuck real good.

and your led idea, i had a similar idea, if you do not like it like that... my idea was to drill holes in the black undertail section next to the red outter tail section and insert them from the inside of the bike, so all you see is the little leds popping through... i mean its kinda more permanent as youd be drilling out your undertail section... but hey what the hell, itd be a clean look...

And i am american and i can spell solder... Not all americans are dumb... just most... :D

Haha, never said you were dumb, just the way I've heard them say the word, without the L... bizzare.

Nah I'm happy with the LED's the way they are, I used a heavy duty automotive doublesided tape, we'll see how well it holds up, the packet says it will do the job :D

The tank was SPOTLESS, cleaned with soapy water first, then eucalyptus oil, then cleaned again, then shined, then dried... cant get that much of a better surface.

If I was to have anything to help people notice I'm braking, I'd install a horn that'd yell "freeze motherfucker" with Samuel L. Jackson's voice whenever I touched the brakes. I like the red LED strips too though, and crushedcamber's idea to install them.

Felix, what model is your jacket? Yeah, I know, it has nothing to do with the topic, I was just wondering.

Cheers.

Hey Felix ever thought about tinting the windshield or getting a new one. I have a black bike and got the krylon gloss spray paint and it looks really good. Eh just another idea.

I love the mods Felix! When I get my bike I'm planning on adding a tinted windshield and tapping the rims. I also wanted to add some decals. Do you know of anywhere that makes custom decals for cheap? I wanted to add a couple V for Vendetta logos on my bike.

Looks bad ass. !!
Yes the targa kit instructions were goofy. Nice mods and thanks for the words on the hanger :)
Now ya need a brake reservior cozy.. I make em out of foam strips
about a whole 10 cents. and you can pull it down to check levels. Yikes my bike is filthy in this pict and the cover is darker and blends in way better in real life.

what is that badge on the chain guard?

Yeah the Brake reservior really stands out now, what kind of foam do you use?

The 'badge' is my bikes registration. The colour is different with each month, so next year when its due, instead of the month august being purple it will be another colour. Cops can easily see if you are registered or not.

Thanks again Zartan, sharp bit of kit that bracket!

He was interested in the exhaust system you have. Thought it was really nice and the lights are crazy fun.

GASP YOU DESTROYED THE TANK PAD? I CAN NEVER FORGIVE YOU.

Yeah I know man, soooooo pissed. Frigging fool. I'll never forgive myself, dont worry! This is the Ratty Memorial Finger Carbon Fibre Tank Pad. Poor replacement for the originial, but oh well, you live and learn.
