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

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.

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

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?

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.
