I have my friends 02 in my garage. We're correcting years of neglect. So far...
Fork seals and bushings
Nitron rear shock
Flush all fluids, replace all filters
Replace Plugs
Remove SAS and Smog (it's a CA model)
New seat foam and cover
Exhaust can repaired, new rivets
Front fairing support being painted black (pending)
Started fitting the replacement fairings. These were customer ordered as the owner wants to remove the silver from the bike. The logos were changed from silver to white. The silver part of the tank is going to get wrapped in color matching red. Still a work in progress but it's looking good.

All complete........until the next adventure.

The dark shadowing is done by a black Thermochromic layer that "shadows" the graphics below 86 degrees F. The last picture is outside just warming up. This is where the Thermochromic layer goes transparent and you can see the graphics and carbon more clearly. Its not a great picture due to reflections and solvents still flashing off from what seems like 5000 coats of clear but hey, she runs well for 20 yrs old.
