Posting for my own reference, but feel free to follow along. I started posting these pictures on facebook and realized I'll get more help/appreciation/caring of any sort here...
So here we go.
Stock last August:
First mod (aside from an under seat storage) was just ripping those antler mirrors off. Am I legal? No. Do I care? No.
This was back 3 weeks ago maybe, when this project began for real.
First digging into the ruck, seat removed, plastics off, gas tank cover gone... NAKED!
NCY Foot Rest and Peg set up. NCY Gas Tank Cover (Almost went black, glad I stuck with white... although she's so dirty already but... oh well)
S/O to thechut for letting me "borrow" his yoshi pipe while he passed emissions.
While this is his, mine is in the mail so, just pretend I already received it and installed it. It would look like that^^
Chut and I chillin in a parking lot. This is about the time I realized she's sitting WAY too high.
In the mail or received/waiting to be installed are:
PWJDM Stem/straight bar set up (Probably replace bars with something else way down the road, but for now, straights will do).
Trail Tech Vapor Tacho/Speedo
NCY Lowered Seat Frame (White)
Yoshi, as mentioned above in stanless.
Projects to attempt this weekend:
Rejet back to stock 75 to try to make her run right again.
Install of the bars/speedo
Front turn signal remount... Bars won't clear the stock signals, so they gotta go. Probably using reflector holes as the location.
Doctor up the plastics for under the gas tank to protect it and MAYBE try to doctor the under seat plastics (I cut the under seat from the under foot plastics right where the engine cover would end on the floorboard)
I like the look of the no plastics, but I Realize i'm vulnerable that way if it rains.
Keep ya'll posted. Hope for the best for this weekend. I have a roommate, a friend, and thechut all helping me with all of this and teaching me until they're blue in the face. I can't thank them all enough bc without em, this would take a LOT longer... The forums have been SUPER helpful for ideas, but someone who's done these things being there is most helpful for learning.
