I removed the sub frame and cut off the plastic cargo hold

I took the forks off to rebuild them. I replaced the springs with race tec .95 springs and also used the gold valve emulator. I used 20 wt fork oil per bpro recommendation. I installed vortex clip-ons and put on i think like 01 r1 brakes as well as a 14mm master cylinder. i also replaced the front wheel bearing and seals

I got a welder for my father as an early fathers day present so he could weld me up a new subframe which i feel came out pretty well.

I am still not done. i had to move the side panels back to clear the front wheel so I am in the process of fiber glassing the gaps up it created and making it a solid structure with the headlight fairing. i also have plans for a header guard and radiator shrouds. i am having the most trouble with the belly pan right now. also i have to figure out my headlight situation because with the h7 i only have highbeams rights now :/

Well the tail section is practically finished i just had to make a spacer and have another mounting point for the front seat.

Image

as for the belly pan i ran into too many issues so i will be using the original and fiberglassing up some small side panels

Image

the front is almost done alot of fiberglass has been used so alot of sanding is needed. the factory second fairings probably wasn't the best idea. for a radiator guard i will be using aluminium mesh. and i will probably also be using that mesh under the headlights aswell. luckily the headlight situation has been fixed i just need to get them aimed now.
