Think she's too low?
Finally had it warm up enough around here to venture out to the garage and get the 3.5" lowered forks and front conversion on my bike. Also had the rear wheel off for painting and put it back on. Been cleaning/polishing and painting stuff too.
Here is the first pic of her on the ground with the tires aired up ... about 3.5-3.75" of ground clearance at the oil sump drain.
What do you think? I think it's badass, but it is REALLY low (and my weight isn't on it)! Even if a little higher I think I'll fab up a 1/8" thick steel mini-skidplate to protect the sump.
Rear of the tank is about 1.5" higher than stock in this pic - might push it to 2".
Going to shorten the front of the seatpan a bit (to pull it forward - have the back of the seat closer to the rear wheel center) and graft in part of the XV seat (the part that covers the back of the tank). Will eventually be painted black and have some covered padding.
Trying to decide if I want to do gunmetal grey or Yamaha blue tank & seat stripes and a tank forks logo - might add a wheel pinstripe in the same color too.
Need to bend up the new rear subframe tubes and start welding too.
Hard to see with all the crap in the background, but the OE gauges are lowered about 1" (headlight will be lower the same) ... might drop them and just go with a simple single round speedo that would sit a little lower.
Eventually I'll pull of the centerstand and shorten the kickstand.
Lots more to do ...
