I just throw on my stock speedo cable and looks like no problems. im still looking for ears and a good light and bucket but should be good to go. only thing i see is the cable need shortend because i put clip-ons on and droped the forks about 1 1/2 . think if im carefull i might be able to cut mine down to where i need it.

Stop over at a friends house over  the weekend and picked up a front and back masters. there in working order just need a good cleaning and some paint . which is good , just one more thing off my list of needs. these are off a early gsxr and only  thing is needed is redo my mounting point for the rear and make a lil hanger off my clip-ons for the front  . going today over to a friends to make my new mount for the speedo and taalk about a few other things that i need to make.....

Been messing around with the front fender and want to have more of a racing feel for it. so after brain storming a lil i trimmed off a lil from the front and the back...
after that was looking at the speedo and just didnt like it sticking up there by itself. wanted a small cowl or something.so what i did was take the back part of the fender that i cut off and cleaned it up and make some brackets for it. then mounted it for a small cowl . then shaped it to match the headlight curve. not finished with it but what i was looking for lil more racing feel...

Great idea with the fender/cowl! Can't say I've seen that before. Fender definitely looks better trimmed down. did you lower it too?

thanks ! yep lower it about 1/2 inch or so , so it would hug the tire lil more . still messing with the cowl to get it just right.was thinking of mounting it to the headlight bucket but didnt like how that looked so just mounted it to the speedo mount i made. just one of those things that work out perfect !
