Time to make a few changes

Recommended Posts

Thought I would make a start on the bike this morning

just going to change a few things Laughing

so first up was drag it out and take a before pic

[img][/img]

think this grab handle requires sorting,so this will be powder coated white,will save messing matching paints up

[img][/img]

then have a look in the box of goodies,some new grips,undertray,some indicators that jim grumpyowl gave me cheers jim thumbs
and some hi viz day running lights that have been sat in the shed,think I will mount these to the headlight

[img][/img]
new grips look rather cool Very Happy
[img][/img]
the little bullet hi viz lights
[img][/img]

now strip the bike make sure the undertray all fits before it goes for paint
[img][/img]

this handle was in the way so that had to go,I could of just cut two slots in the undertray,but prefer it removed for a cleaner look
[img][/img]

had to trim the under tray a little,but it all fits now,so that can be painted

[img][/img]

think this needs to go,big useless piece of junk it is,the control valve for the pair system emissions/noise control device Twisted Evil removeing it will stop alot of the popping from the zorst
[img][/img]

thats been removed,just need to remove these small pipes under the headers,then blank the holes off with the blanking kit
[img][/img]

will update as I do it thumbs

put the bike back indoors now,front calipers removed think it needs pads and a good clean up

[img][/img]

rear wheel removed,some cleaning to do here
rear disc is shot so will after get a new one

[img][/img]
[img][/img]

both wheels off,will take these to work in the morning Sad remove the tyres and wheel bearings ready to send to the powder coaters
[img][/img]

thats it for now folks,will update as I go along thumbsthumbsthumbs
