Nice! Lets see more! :freaky

It's coming along nicely... With the handlebar risers, what did you do about the brake hose and clutch cable? :ear

nothing yet... going to have a local shop make me a longer brake line and was really thinking about getting the magura hydro clutch... but not sure... suggestions? :ear

Awesome! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do to prep your bike and your reasoning behind it. Like why you chose a certain bash plate, etc. :ear

Just a couple, on opposing sides from eachother.

Camel ADV 12-18-2010 11:45 AM

Coming along nicely! You're going to love the big tank:thumb

Motorfiets 12-19-2010 02:13 PM

eastern beaver, GPS, heated gear troller, AUX lights....

by the way.... what do you people use for a "switching power" lead?

inmate-n00b 12-19-2010 02:59 PM

likey:clap

markymcd 12-19-2010 09:06 PM

I like except for painting the frame.

DWS 12-19-2010 09:10 PM

Looking good.
Are there any crash bars that fit with that tank?

Ducksbane 12-19-2010 10:59 PM

I like the colour scheme ... even the frame, although it is a little bit "KTMish" :clap

I was wondering how the Brittanica Composites fairing and the handlebar risers work together. No intereference ?

Also have you tried out the fairing? I was thinking of getting a similar setup when funds permit.

I also wondered what you were doing to the suspension? :lurk

craftycoder 12-20-2010 06:06 AM

Paint looks great.
I use the CANBus for switched power. You get a few minutes of power after the bike is off as well so that takes some getting used to.
