The left side cover has been a bit of a nightmare.  Turns out it's pretty far away from being a straight mirror part.  I had to remodel it from scratch rather than mirroring the right side and tweaking it.  The frame is slightly different and this side needs to cover the air box, which sticks out quite a way - in comparison to the relatively flat and flush battery on the other side.  I'm onto the 2nd prototype already, hoping this one (on print now) will match up better and clear the bottom of the air box!

Right, I'm on to the 3rd and 4th prototypes of each of these covers and still fluffing around with the fitment and the detail. 

In the mean time, I am contemplating what sticker to place on the covers.  I'll probably get them vinyl cut in either silver or mirror vinyl.  I really like the old SR500 logo - came in a couple of variations, so I have tried that.  Then the logo on the tank of the late model SR250's is also actually pretty cool - a bit more modern graphically.  Could work, just not sure it fits.  Then of coarse I am toying with the idea of putting Jadus on the side - this would be good to get the name out there but I am not a fan of blatant promotion.  Not so smart business wise maybe but for me its all about the design.  Not ruling it out, just cautious of it is all.  I could use just the text, or just the logo, not both.  Thoughts?

Of those pictured, I like the last/logo better than the script.

Firstly, this is a badass awesome thread :D

Addition of kickstarter or kick conversion ? Some time back I had to round up used  XT250 parts to convert.

I like the last logo the best over the text, but I think all of them could be smaller in relation to the Yamaha logo

+1

The Jadus logo looks good and in my opinion isn't "in your face"....

Thanks!  I've been watching your vids for a while now and love your sense of humour  ;D

I actually have all the parts for a kick start conversion, but decided it wasn't right for this build.  I'm saving it for the next SR which is going to be more racer focused.  More on that later/when this one is done!

Well thats a good few people in for the Jadus logo, awesome.  I'll play a bit with the size of it and it's position.

Just signed a contract and started a full time job again, so I am glad I am real close with the build  :)
