I thought I had some pics on how I installed my rear panels. You'll need to be creative to mount the seat key-latch.

Here are a few links that may be handy.

I never even considered that.. is the key latch mounted physically on the stock fairing?

I still haven't figured out where I'm going to mount my digital volt meter now that I don't have an upper left fairing where it was installed

Yes, w/ 2 screws.... and there were no posts on my panels to screw them back in. Not sure I'd want to anyways.

Hey man, that doesn't look half-bad! Those tanks are funny, I guess it totally depends on the camera angle weather they look GINORMOUS or not.

Keep on with the updates!

Great write up Ed

What's the story with the Euro headlight though? Why switch from the one you've got?

aha so the cats out of the bag. YOur going with the fiberglass panels.
I was actually asking Craig about those a few weeks ago. but XDBX ended up having a set of used stockers for me to paint.

Awesome video.

Nope.. I'm going with custom order carbon fibre panels

It remains to be seen if they are going to look like shite or not

The US headlight uses a dual filament single bulb. It sucks.

By going to the Euro headlight you end up with the dual bulbs (H3/H7) which means you can then change them as desired. I'll probably do something like a 50watt HID in the low beam and a higher wattage high beam (which is what I run on my TE610 and it works really well).

Looks good Geek. Flatten the black on the rear panels and front fender and it'll be a sweet looking ride

No more shiny bike photo's though ......

Tomorrow I'm supposed to receive a new airfilter, new unitfilter, euro headlight and euro switch (quick service from KTMTwins.com I ordered it Tuesday!).

Hopefully I can get all that installed for this weekend's frozen ride.

Then sometime next week the carbon fibre rear fairings should show up and I can wax all my stock body work and put it in safe storage. s
