Thanks guys

I got some more stuff done today

- fairing mounting "arms" shaped and welded to the main bracket

- got the DZUS locks on there as well

- instrument mount cut, tack welded and test fitted...

Next up is tack welding the instrument bracket to the fairing mount and then take the whole thing off and weld, sand, paint...

A bit more progress, got the whole front fully welded and made a license plate holder. Next up:  headlight bracket

Got the zx6r shock installed, easier than I expected!

Next up is getting the wiring mess sorted...

I went to Bali on vacation and managed to track down the guy who fabricates the exhausts and pipes for all the custom shops in the area including DEUS, he had a GP style can (which I have been looking for) on the shelf so I snagged it for a good price :)



Here's the shop, quite impressive craftmanship, and they were fast!

That's awesome. Bet it was cheap, too.

Salivating. Can you grab three of the expansion chambers for my gt550? :)

I was seriously considering buying some expansion chambers just to have them on the shelf for a future project :) Most of the exhausts were around 50 bucks...

Signing on for this one. Had an 02' SV myself. Loved that thing.  Can't wait to see her done!

I mounted one light in front... still on the fence about one or two headlights...



Got a friend who's better with the welder to weld my new pipe to the connector pipe



Got it mounted and couldn't help but firing it up - holy lightning it sounds good! Very deep tone and not too agressive bark... until you twist the throttle



I also got the wiring rerouted so it all sits neatly under the seat... now onto exhaust bracket and hooking up the lights

Looking awesome. I think asymmetrical lights would look good. The one you mounted in the pic above as the large one and then a small (maybe LED) one on the other side
