Oh Ya, What are you going to do with the foot pegs and controls? I have left the main pegs off and the bag pegs fit nicely, I think I might design my own foot controls, Have you figured anything out yet or going to use the factory ones?

Besides paint, bars, and shock adjustments--I plan on using as many stock components as possible. Since I want to do some trail riding with the bike, I like the placement of the stock pegs better than a rear set. Also, another reason I wanted to keep the longer stock seat pan (besides the fact that it's kickass), is that I may want to bring my wife along for an easy trial ride or two. Thus, having forward stock pegs and a second set in the rear will allow the occasional passenger.

Im interested in seeing what you do with the license/light combo. And ya that seat pan is a sweet gift from kawasaki.  I agree with the larger shocks, 1-2"  will get that stance, I just stared looking at beefier tires with an on/off road tread.

I plan on using this light--it's an integrated brake light, tail light, and turn signals--all in one clean little package. I wish it was oval instead of diamond shaped, but for the price I'm not going to complain.

I'm going to carefully punch holes in the rear seat cover, and attach the light to the bottom rear panel of the seat. I will probably take the seat to the guy who made it to have him stitch around the holes to maintain the integrity of the cover for the long term.

Here's where the inspiration for the seat color came from in case you think I'm crazy.  :)

Seat inspiration...this seat is similar to mine in shape, thickness and length. If I could copy the overall stance of this bike, I would in a heartbeat!

Look at how the brake light and license plate bracket are attached to this seat--this is similar to what I will do, but I plan to attach mine to the bottom of the back panel as opposed to underneath.

I love the tan color seats, I like the seats flat like the second bike,and those tires are pretty mean looking.

Seat is finished! When the rest of the bike is blacked out, this is going to offset the black nicely.


Here's the seat when I picked it up from the shop:




Here it is when I got it home and put it on my bike. I really like how the stock pan goes up in the back almost giving it a slight street fighter look. The thickness is perfect. Thick and comfortable enough that it will be great to ride around on, but about half as thick as the stock seat.




DAMN that seat looks awesome! How much did he charge you for?

He would've charged me $100 for everything had I used the stock barbs under the seat, but I had him install hidden snaps that cost me an extra $50. I wanted the ability to remove and reinstall the cover, and the stock barbs are only good for one or two recovers.

I found some shocks off an old dirt bike for cheap at the local used parts shop. I have dropped the front end a little over 1" and I have raised the rear 2" -- here are before and after pics:

*Tank color is just a test spray...what do you think?
