Not much going on other than waiting on parts due to having to work the weekend. Taking tank and all plastic to body shop tomorrow. Have some nude pics of it will try to upload later today. I know some of you guys don't approve but I think I am going with one color for the tank and plastic something like this picture or a orange chameleon of some sort.

Keep the original 03 paint job and decals, can't go wrong with that. Looks like you have a set of dan moto cans on there right now. You don't like them?

The Dan Moto cans sound ok but didn't last a full year maybe 2500 or 3000 miles before they turned brown and started to burn trough. They are light, loud and cheap other than that don't have much good to say about them.

Oh, you don't say..:eek: I have them on my 03. It will take me a long long time to get to 3000 miles on them. For now they look and sound great.

Maybe I should have sprung and got the titanium versions....

I thought about that but for 100 or so more I bought the Yoshimura Rs-3 from riders discount. Worth a look

Oil and filter change.
Just had plugs, oil filter, oil and air filter changed when I bought the bike last year but wont hurt to do it again.

After doing some reading on here. It seems the NGK plugs are better then the Denso's and the coil stick conversion isn't much benefit. So i guess the only things I'm going to do is the flapper, pair mod and maybe the soft rev if i can figure it out. Did get the power commander installed and some cleaning done on her.
I have tons of pictures of it nude so any part you wanna see just let me know I'm sure I have a picture of it. I am still open to ideas of stuff I may do while she is down.

Reassembly has started :)
Woodcraft clipons, grips, clutch and break levers installed.
Oil change done with Royal Purple and Wix filter.
Headlights back in.
New plugs in.
Here is a sneak peek of the paint. Before you start going on about how I ruined my bike by not keeping it original, please remember if it wasn't for me ruining my bike yours wouldn't be so perfect and rare :) I believe in making stuff my own and perfect for me. Ride it, love it and make her yours.
