  8. Hi someone cant wait anymore so i mounted the panels yesterday . So this is how it look't last fall. And this is how it look's now And some closeups Now it's just out and ride it . Cheers Maveric
  9. Thanks for the comments .. Now i will continue the story of my project. after i had put the primer on i got over the parts with some vet&dry 800 grid and painted some parts with white pearl.. and some parts with the same paint as the frame And when it was dry i masked it up for a coat of Boost blue pearl . Starting to see a pattern . And here is the tank with some airbrush (eyes and Suzuki logo). The eyes was my whifes idea (probably her keeping a Eye on me) LOL and the logo is in two colours to make it look like it's hovering over the tank. The side panels was the last part that i decided how it will look like (acually was not decided before this last friday) painshop idea And the finished look If anyone wonder why the nr:21 it's simply my lucky number no other relation . When i sprayed the tank and the frontfender the idiot "me" forgott to adjust the amount of paint when i cleaned the spraygun , so a copple of nice "paint curtains" emerge in the clearcoat . So i had to wait untill this sunday to rub the curtains down and put 2 more layers of clearcoat on ,but now it's ok . And this is how the finished result look like . on the front fender i did a little twist ,i put some old school fireflames just for fun close up close up on the eye's i ment tank LOL This is as far i'm at the moment ,got a permit to store all new painted parts on our second floor inside the house to let the paint harden before i put them on sometime end next week almost cant wait I also have another thing to tell ,a copple of weeks ago i did a new dynorun (power run) coz i was not pleased with the result last fall (156hp/155mn at the rear wheel) that time it was running lean. Now i have tuned it in and changed the cam settings for a higer rpm torque , and i pay'd up i now have 168hp/160mn at the rear wheel think it's ok if you now a stock one has 102hp in the motor . Happy as a lottery vinner if all goes as plan i'm on my way to UK 6:th of august trying to do a ironbutt (1000miles in less than 24hours) and a bikemeet at old George Sykeshouse with the GSX1400 owners se if we meet at the roads . Cheers Maveric

  11. Hi here starts the story of my descition to make a change of paint scheme on my GSX1400 -07 . It all started with i noticed a lots of stone chips on the frame after used the bike for 40000km ,so i decided to repaint the frame. Here is a pic of how it looked in oct 2013 the week after this pic i started the diassembly, a complete stripdown except the motor. now the "fun" started this frame was no beauty regarding he welds , all the "gravel" like thats are around a weld they have not sanded away before paint . So a lot of hours later i was done with it and put the primer on at this stage i had also removed the mountings for the horns (hidden the horn under the tank) . Some paint and clearcoat it looked like this changed colour from black to grafite gray metallic . Then the fun started put all together again it's really nice when all things are clean . At the same time i changed front springs to progressive ones a good decition i can say now . Even made a little twist with the vin plate, see if you can see the difference At this point i decided to do something about the wheels too ,so i removed all the text on the spokes except the Suzuki logo. Then the same process started again primer Paint same as the frame Painted the Suzuki logo red . and this is how it looks if i says it myself . even the calipers got some attention with new seals and paint this is how it looks right now. But it's not over yet . As i have a complete set extra containing tank, rear end, sidepanels and front fender. i started to do a lot of thinkering what to make with those parts , and two weeks ago i had decided on a paint scheme. so the hole process started again . and there i stop for tonight will continue tomorrow . Cheers Maveric
