PostSubject: The Streetfighter Project   Mon Aug 24, 2009 2:15 am

Alright everyone this is my first streetfighter project so take it easy on me. Im open to suggestions so feel free. Here is what I have done so far.

When I bought the bike this is what it looked like


A friend wrecked it for me and helped me make up my mind to do a streetfighter project


First thing I did after the wreck was take off the front fairings, and threw on the dual dominator headlight


The big rear end was still buggin the crap out of me so I finally ditched that. When I took it off I fount out there was a whole mounted on bracket for the rear tail light so I lost quite a bit of weight also


I got to have a little fun by installing a stage 3 Jet Kit and the K&N Filters, I learned alot about carbs do this, so if anybody needs any help with them I have been there and back



The Seat had to go so this is me doing a hackjob. Right now Im just working with what shape I want As soon as I figure it out Im going to take it to a pro to have it foamed. I also chopped about 3 inches off the back of the seat, this is for future plans I have with the subframe. The Seat is like this through most of the pics after this "THIS IS SOMETHING I KNOW SO PLEASE DONT FOCUS YOUR ATTENTION ON IT"


Me and Adam had some extra time so we decided to chop the crap out of the front fender is was entirely to big


Found a headlight I liked better for cheaper and it sort of fits the look I want better. I also ditched about 5 pounds of handlebar weight and replaced them with some Moose racing handlebars and universal risers




List of Mods and Cost

Jet Kit and Filters $200
Seat Uphostery and Modifications $0
Front Fender Modifications $0
Handlebars and Risers $70
Headlight $25

I will try to include more detailed pics now that I have everyone caught up

Thanks to Cindy I picked up this sweet helmet for free. Mine was looking pretty rough
The Helmet is The Craft RXX6 Barracuda and I have been looking at them for awhile they run around $250 so its pretty crazy that this happened

Thanks again Cindy

Alright everyone can stop being embarrased to ride with me. I finally took the time tonight to get it done.

Here is what you all have seen me riding around on for the last few weeks


And here is what I have now


And here are a few pics of it on the bike. I got a little carried away, but it feels good to have it back

You can see in the picture that you have the plate blacked out, the slack in your chain!

How to mod levers

1. Buy $100 in new handlebar equipment
2. Install new handle bar equipment
3. Hold bike at precise angle approx 4 feet from the ground and drop bike directly on to end of new handlebars

Desired Result

Works everytime
