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.

So how did the tray work out for you ???? It is there already ??.... That was fast shipping !!

Post up some pics of it !! Would like to see one of my trays on another RC !!!

Tail cowl and lid is nice in Carbon.... You can send it to the return address on the box I sent you when you have had your fill of it... Ok ?? LOL !!!

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!:eek:
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!

How does the new tail fit compared to the original and do you see any wavyness in the finish? Thinking of getting one myself and having part of it painted, but then I look at mine and there's nothing wrong with it, so maybe not... decisions, decisions...

I wonder if Duckhumper could fashion a tail section out of his fancy honeycomb carbon fiber??? :D
Madcryer....:p
I bet I can get my guy give it a go.... I have a rashed tail section I can use for donation as a mold basis.

He has got the under seat tray I fabricated and is replicating that right now.
Honeycomb tail section would be interesting !!! :confused:

The only wavey ness I see is a little on the cowl cover its self. Just a little but you can see it next to the cowl and that is perfect.

The fit seems spot on. There is no flex to be had so its super hard to get the tail up and over everything but it will go on.
This stuff looks like art.
Now I have to decide if I want to put # plates on and how to do it. More like where to get them from.

Well.... I will look into having it done. Might not be cost effective though. I am honestly thinking to replicate the race body I just got off Nobody's buddy in Big weave carbon if anything.
Things have been pretty busy for me here lately.... Work wise, and chasing after my two young sons and " trying " to keep the wife happy :rolleyes: LOL !!!
Plus I have projects on the go that take up all my " me " time......:D

Nobody.... Sending you a PM.

Best to have them painted on as that is how they are done with OEM.

Or you can have vinyl made up..... graphics shop should be able to do it.

And a few more pics but with better light seems that big yellow thing showed up today.

I think I will go with some silver vinyl # plater for now to make sure that's what I want. That would be easy to change info don't like it.
I was going to order up some OE 1000r stickers and the little Honda sticker on the back of the tail but I got severe sticker shock when I saw the price.
It was almost 50 bucks for three little stickers! Shipped of course but my god.
