so it was an 04, that i rescued from some college student (im not sure i believe that anymore though) down here in TX.





after i fixed the:

broken handlebars (and put Renthal road race grips on)
warped front rotor (and put on new XTC rotors)
cracked gauge cluster (and put a new cover on)
broken exhausts (and put on a new DanMoto GP system on)
leaking front shocks (and had them rebuilt, all OEM)
worn out body (and put on hotbodies pieces, all)
blacked out windscreen (replaced with clear)
old bent rearsets (put on new woodcraft rearsets and convert to GP shift)
stupid alarm system (removed...just straight up removed that shit)
dirtyness of just about everything (elbow grease and lots of towels)
dirty oil (new oil)
leaky radiator (a new section of hose)
no steering damper (nearly new scotts, from someone on this forum i think)
PCIII out of whack (put a 'safe' map on it)


it finally looks like this:







Its a McLaren MP4/4 Senna tribute theme:
Sure the paint shows a few ripples from the previous owners screw up botch job paint with backwards wing decals; and the windscreen is alittle scratchy, and the exhaust required alittle...."massaging" to fit correctly; but i like it and i cant wait to get testing, to the race school down in NOLA, then finally to Barber to make the last race of the WERA season.

Looking really good! How did the Hotbodies fit? I've heard complaints from older stuff, but looks like the fairings fit pretty good.

Enjoy, make sure you have lots of vids/pix of the maiden track ride.

The fit was really good, i DID have to do alittle coaxing to get them to line up perfect......but i suppose its not bad considering.
