I removed the tail, installed a pig-tail for a battery tender, and replaced the stock rear pegs with Sato Ti hangers.

I also Stomp-Gripped the tank...The generic sport bike Stomp-Grip cut is cheaper than the custom-cut ones, and if you install the R side upside down on the L side of the tank, and vice versa, it is practically a perfect fit...One straight slice with the X-acto to remove one row of maybe 8 nubs per side, and it's pretty much spot-on.



So, what did you do to your RC today...?

...and not a moment too soon, by the looks of it. :eek: NICE sludge you got in there.

Of course it counts, you answered the question AND it makes me want to go check a few of my other bikes now, ugh!

I know! I'm gonna overhaul my brake system after the clutch is done and running right. I'm afraid it may look like the clutch cylinders...

Can you post a pic of that stomp-grip? interested to see what it looks like.

I will tonight...It doesn't look as good as the bare tank, I assure you, but it works great. Function over form for me on that.

You would have...But the Russian judge disqualified you because it wasn't technically "today", and there was also some concern that you may still need to flush and replace the air in your tires. :D

Sounds like a TON of work...Enjoy the new bullet!

Did a little fitting mockup for the Samco hoses while I'm waiting for the Turn-One carbon-fiber air scoops to arrive.
Plus ordering other parts.

Tonight I am going for the "Smallest mod of the Day" award...Safety wiring my new Renthal grips.

Should be challenging.

ok i just went for a ride :p :p dos that cont !!! :D :D it was fun !!!!!! cheers buddha
Winner! That's what they are here for, right? Ironically, my '04 is brand new to me, I got rained out last Sunday, been at work all week, tweaking on it at night...Started it up, still haven't ridden it yet! Aaargh, forecast calling for rain again tomorrow a.m., so either Saturday afternoon or Sunday, I hope to be able to say the same.

bought a twin slip on jardine setup for my bike off this site
Nice! Buying it counts, and post again please when you get to say, "Installed a twin slip on..." Good luck and have fun with the install.




And now, here it is...Last night's work, the smallest mod category...Safety wired the grips! I love these Renthals, they may not be that cushy, but they sure are grippy.


Photo also shows my CRG lever install from the other day.

Please keep 'em coming, what did YOU do to your RC today? :cool:

Wiped the snow off of it . . . the wife accidentally left the garage door open all day while we were in the middle of a snow storm . . .

Fortunately, the bike had been buttoned up just a few days earlier from all the winter mods being performed. They included PAIR mod, Flapper mod and the addition of a PCIIIusb. I also drained and replaced the coolant and oil.

I am waiting on my Skidmarx CF hugger to arrive (in about a month . . . they still have to make and then ship it from the UK) and when it does, I will post up install pics.

If you want a *really* cheap but nice-looking & functional alternative... install the tiny plastic rear fender from a CBR600. You'll need to install some blind nuts into the swingarm, but it looks & works great! The fender itself was only around $10. :)
