Time for a change

What started as replacing the bags has turned into a full blown project. Mid stream I decided to change the color as well. We will see how it turns out.

As it looked yesterday (June 21, 2013)


Today I worked on some of the mock up plus sanded down the extra tank I bought from a forum member.

Installing Top Shop Viper bags, Klock Werks Slicer front fender, RWD rear fender extension. Currently looking for a set of extended side panels and replacement dash/cap.

Looking forward to seeing the finished product, it always start with I was JUST going to do this and end up doing ALL OF THIS! BTW Pickard has the covers that extend out all the way to the edge of the bags (reason I went with them) there are others out there.

I will check out Pickard. I am leaning towards the BadDads covers, as they are pop on. Too bad Top Shop cannot get their matching side covers to market, those are really the ones I would like to get.

Check out CamTech, Sinister, or Black Label Baggers for the side panels.

For everybody interested in removing the OEM pin stripe, DON'T DO IT. What a pain in the ass, that is one nasty sticker under the clear coat. It is not just two pin stripes, it is a full sticker between the stripes as well. I ended up sanding all the way to bare metal. I have since found out that there is a 3M wheel available that would have removed the stripe a little easier. I guess it does not matter, the tank would have to be repainted anyway you go about it.

Live and learn.

Made a little progress this weekend, finished the front fender and bag lowers. At this pace, I should have all 18 pieces painted and installed around the end of the year....LOL.

Actually, once I hit all the solid color pieces the pace should pick up. I don't want to rush things, besides the bike is still complete and road ready. I have almost a complete take off body set that I am doing this project with. The front fairings are the only pieces I am using from the original bike and I am saving that until last.

Pic quality kind of sucks since it was a cell phone, but I am happy so far.
