Thanks crq,  I'm really looking forward to painting this thing so it's less janky looking next to the 240. 

stogz I have a fabricator friend who is going to weld me an aluminum sump tank, and I'll run AN fittings and lines to the factory pickup and return.  It will be similar to this, only rectangular.  I may extend it under the air filters for more capacity as well.

Waiting for this hurricane to blow over and for my new forks and tire to come in before I can make more progress.  I did make a new "fusebox" for the bike to replace the original glass tube style fuseholder...

What tail light is that?  Integrated turns I assume?  Looks awesome!

I'm using your headlight as an inspiration!  I want to get maybe a Mini H1 projector and figure out a housing for it, maybe custom machined or retrofitted into an old housing.

Nice fix on the fuses. Heat Shrink?

Yeah, I was looking at the hella 90mm housings as good donors to do a retrofit into as well- maybe something to look into?  Minih1 is more than adequate for a bike too, but I would do an e55 or TL projector or something if space allows.  I did a mini h1 retrofit for a scooter owned by a buddy of mine and it turned out really nice, great width and visibility at night.  Oh the taillight is from an 07-08 zx6 with integrated signals, although I won't be using them.  There's a duc monster taillight that is similar too

Thanks.  I popped a 3 fuse row/cluster out of a nissan fusebox and de-pinned it and crimped the pins onto the leads from the old fuse holder, added some solder on there to be sure the contacts were healthy as well.  I will probably epoxy some little brackets on the side to mount it.  It's just electrical taped over to keep it tidy.  I didn't have any sleeving on hand.

Yeah, I picked up a Ducati Monster taillight, and it's great.  I was just impressed with how much smaller that ZX6 one is.

I've been spending a lot of time looking into those Hella 90mm housings because they are sealed, especially the halogen low beam H9 because it's cheaper (~$60).  Can still swap in an HID.  I was just thinking Mini H1 or FX-R just because they are bi-xenon, otherwise I'll have to do without high beams.  We'll see, have a lot of work to do before I can even think about lighting.

I actually like the look of it with the shitty paint job. Looks brutal and agressive!

I'd like to see how it pans out if you do end up doing that keep me in the loop!

Oh man, I think it's just awful and tacky looking.  I say leave the flat paintjob to stealh bombers and the batmobile!  I have something extremely unique planned for paint though, I'm waiting to do it totally last because I'm looking forward to it so much.
