So some goodies arrived in the mail, the wifey was good enough to send me a few shots



New CV boots will hopefully create an air tight seal around the new CRs they cant be any worse that the old ones that were all cracked and perished



These are the 3 LED lights hopefully they work well with the front fairing im trying to dream up

So to say I'm pleased with the prototype would be a vast under statement ...it surpassed all my expectations

I'm seriously stoked so the real deal is going into production now



Mark up



The rough cut ...now the hard part I'm not too sure how much the old man will get done but based on the prototype it will be worth the wait

So had some more progress on the final pieces










This is as far as the job has progressed, but I'm more than happy to wait.

Had anyone on here put the 900 cams in their 750 I'm just wondering how much it's going to change the performance coupled together with the CRs and the 4into 1

Iíve done it, it does help a little but honestly Iíve already outgrown my 750. If I could Iíd gusset my frame and throw in a 1100f motor. Funds prevent me from such an endeavor.  :(

Ok so the majority of the hard work is done

Just need to tap the holes for the rear sets to bolt onto and also work out the spacer size to put to accomodate for the oem bolts



Looking very cool

Well I'm stoked the holes have been tapped and the rear sets bolted on... now I'm in two minds as to whether or not to get them anodised they look pretty good as is I may have to do a dry run.



Only another two weeks and I can put these bad boys on

My brother also came through with the goods with the decal for the side of the tank



Slowly slowly she's all starting to come together

Have to do some panel work I think when I get home among other things

I'd see about centering the wing on that logo: it'd look more balanced. Otherwise it just kind of looks like a decal saying "Franken" was tacked on to original. My $0.02.

They're pretty slick otherwise though; I love that your brother was able to match the font so closely to original
