never get fully comp at my age mate! 3000 to insure the at fully comp!!

and parts are looking hard to source

nose cones are around £130, scrrens are easy to get for under £40, mirrors are a tenner, but the brace doesnt excist for my model at the moment :/

i think its the g1 and 2 that are the same or something along those lines mate :/

and true stue, i landed on my arse! byt my mate if he was sitting on his bike even said it would have landed on his leg!

but today ive been busy. took most of the broken bits off, and ive de-stickerd the tank and seat cowl (stickers under the laquer) feathered it out, bit of primer, and then based them in black, so that when the solid black goes on it the same colour underneath and i had some going spare. but it reacted like an arse! dont know why thou as it was on freshly sanded primer, was c9olpletely dry, panel wiped and tacked off. need to sort that before the paint!

screens deffo buggered


and the brace :P

also i got bored and attacked the tool box as usual!

only anodised red bits i have are fork adjusters and tax disc holder so i can get away with them.

its going black, with flourecent yellow bits.

plan is which may change is the yellow on the wheels. few kawasaki,ninja and zx9r stickers, and then where the japanese writtting was before have the risisng sun logo. Wink

finally feel im getting somewhere with the bike. seat cowls polished up, undertrays polished up, and on, managed to bent the plate light bit on the bracket and make a solid bracket that has worked a treat, and sits well.

got ally brace, screens on its way, fairings being repaired, all i need to do is get a mirror, that i fixed, but then putting the glass back i cracked the glas! doh, thats 7 years of extra bad luck!

all painted just bit more flatting and polishing to go,

got a new mirror and it was honestly bit crap, but just won a pair on ebay for £11 so result!!

and me and my boss had a late one finishing a fiesta at work, and then decided to tint some lights with some leftover laquer Smile

heres the light,

before


after



and i know there will be some haters, sayinf it blocks the light, but its not actually black just quite a bit smoked, and i have some ultra bright led tail lights, so they let out plenty of light Smile

plus i rarely go out in the dark
