 Super Bike bars and 714 grips installed.



 MotoLanna headlight ears (picked up CHEAP from eBay), stainless turn signal relocation brackets and smaller signals.



 Non-rusty front fender swapped over. FZR rotor and R6 caliper. Just need a new hose made up.

Same with the rear fender and chain guard. New Shinko tires. YSS shocks. I'll touch up the frame soon, too.

Tried to fit the Winning/Kerker exhaust tonight and the collar won't pull up tight on the head. Or, rather, it will pull up and bottom out before securing the header.
 It looks like there was a split collar or ring there, maybe? Similar to Honda exhausts? You can see a bit of discoloration there, and it's about the same size as the ring on the stock header.
 What am I missing? Is there a collar or ring available to make this fit?




 Made my own. I had this piece of muffler piping in the garage from a leftover project. It fit perfectly.



 I made two collars 19mm wide, same as the ring on the stock header.



 Tightened up perfectly! Since I only have two hands, I had to use a little grease on the gasket and collars, and a rubber band that I later cut off.
 I'm really happy with the look and fit. I hope it sounds and performs just as well!






 I also replaced the hose clamp at the muffler/header junction with a T-bolt clamp.
