Ginger Gets a Makover

Finally done with races for awhile.
Time to give Ginger some much deserved TLC.
I picked up Ginger in January. The only thing I was able to get done since was new shoes.

Don't she look sexy with those fresh knobbies.



Over the last several weeks I have gathered some goodies for the makeover.
Here a 2008 mask with a real headlight. I have no idea what KTM was thinking with the one that came with the 2009 stock.




Some serious bash protection. I'm sure this will come in handy as Ginger makes her way thru the herd.
Also some nice soft grip for my baby hands.



Now for some functional Bling.
GPR under the bar stabilizer. Hammerhead +20mm Shift lever for better shifting with big boots.



Fork bleeders. A must for all KTM forks.

Hot Cams valve shim kit and Tune ECU cable for getting into Gingers mind.



A very important part is the FMF Q-4 Silencer. This removes about 5 pounds of weight from the ThermoNuclear reactor that was on the bike.


Time to get started. Her she is up on the stand. Excited to try out the new headlight.


Started to undress her.


She got so excited she raised her tail. ;)



Some of the bling. Here's the GPR installed.



Got another package of goodies. Here are the Cycra Probend Handguards. Not seen is the Scotts Shark fin. Pic later
Thanks to M2W for getting them for me.


As of last night, Ginger was taking a nap.



More goodies are on the way.
Tonight is a shipment from KTM Twins with a new fuel pump, Rally-Raid Upper tank Bolts, A Superplush Shock collar and a Evo Airbox cover.
Later in the week I will have the new LED taillight assembly with integrated turn signals and the Doubletake mirrors like I use on all my bikes.
It's been a looooong weekend. [/QUOTE]
