** PICS OF MEMBERS RIDES ** - Official Before & After Thread

Is that the best you got? OK.. now my TURN...
OK Guys and Gals,
For reference, lets make this the Official DTT thread for the member's rides only

Lets keep it to a "BEFORE" & "AFTER" pic only... with details of the bike.
You could put up as many posts as you want, (you mabe have 10 bikes like Yellowducky), but lets keep 1 bike/project per post
That way its easier for other members to track down bikes!!

This is a great idea Ease!!...(LOL.. I cant take credit for this one!!)..

I don't have a more recent pic, but I have since ditched the front fender and gone with clipons. I'm planning on doing some rearsets this winter.

Hey Kuyarico how did you like that fairing? Was it noisy? I just picked one up myself and havent installed it yet, but is it at all effective for keeping at least some windblast down?

1983 Yamaha XJ650RK (SECA)


Before:


Current(er):


Slightly more current (but dirty):


To Come: Hoping to get frame, tripples, swingarm, case savers (lol), brake stay, and whatever else I can powder coated silver; Install Clip-On's, lower the front a bit more, get a new oil filter housing and mill it down to round (don't need the fins cause I have an oil cooler and it's cold here), wrap the pipes in black glass (pending on oil filter cover - need to mill it in order to get it to fit out with the wrap), install pods, re-jet (again) for pods, re-locate battery and electrics (no room under the hump... plan on mounting the battery in the middle of the frame in plain sight)... Hmm, what else... Sure looks like alot when you write it down :D

OH, and I would LIKE to shave off the top tree to get rid of the clamps before I powdercoat... So if anyone has info / pics of when they did this I'd really appreciate it (PM me or post in a how-to page ;D).

I was wondering who else on the board had a KZ cafe so I could browse them and probably get some ideas or see how they did certain things.
Some Cafe kz650s:

Here's a link to Scumbag's Cafe: Scumbag's cafe



And another Dave's 650:



Oh and this was Blake's KZ650 with moked up seat. Bike now belongs to Jerome (Romey) on this site:

It worked well for keeping the wind down. Mine eventually cracked from pro-longed contact with the brake fluid resevoir. It was tricky fitting the thing. I bought another one, but later decided that I liked the naked look better.
