Winter work is done*.

I have posted some stuff on here with my progress but I was on others threads.
kinda thought I could throw one up for the stuff I have done over the winter and show a few pics along the way.

Most obvious are the gold wheels and I'm very happy with them.
Brand new Tyga front fender and rear cowl. Very sweet! I did have to open the holes up on my dowel cover base to get the cover panel to sit right. Its close now but still draws my ATTN. So I will probably mess with it more.
I moved all the electronics from the tail to the stock battery location and moved the battery down in front lower fairing.
Removed the stock overflow tank and replaced it with a motion pro bottle that I mounted below the right radiator.
Cut the crap out of my two sisters.( just playing since I have plans for new birds).
Sticky kevlar grips.
New Bridgestone bt016 pro tires.
New wheel bearings and steering stem bearings.
New clutch.
Fuel filter and regulator.
Rewrapped header all the way and coated my mids.
New plugs and fluids and a complete rebuild of all calipers and clutch slave.
And stickers! I'm a sticker whore!
I'm sure I am forgetting something and I will put some more pics up of my work.

Thumbs up

Your bike looks great! I am loving the carbon rear tail and front fender. That is something I definitely do not need but want!

Thanks for the compliments.
I was right there too in not needing but for sure wanting... A few sales pitches later...( I can sell ice to an Eskimo) the wife gave me her blessing.... Good thing since Tyga had already shipped the fender and tail!
I can't recall having so much fun unboxing something as these new carbon pieces.

Yes the tail looks sweet...but I'm rather jealous that your winter work is complete. I'm the forever procrastinator nights leave me a zombie during the week and the weekends I want to spend with my family.

Oh well better get to it....bike looks good!
