OK guys a few more pics of some updates I'm working on. Got the rear fender on and mocked up. I'm going with the Bad Dad setup. Was going to go the custom route but why.... the Bad Dad setup is a pre-fit item and saved me a ton of time. Their parts aren't cheap but once on the bike, I saw why they charge what they do... the fender lined up pretty much perfectly and its a nice quality piece. Those of you that knows fiberglass....they usually don't come "bolt-on" out of the box. The fender as you can see sets pretty low from the floor. This is still a safe level in case air ride ever goes out. One modification that I done to rear is cut the stock oem fender off a little more than they said. Reason is that you could still see the stock fender on sides once you laid the new fender on. Didn't like that, cause you would be able to pick up on it later once painted. Plus after checking with Bad Dad on this....they actually started doing the same thing..so we were cool there. Still undecided on bags at this point for several reasons, (speakers, latch, latch less, lids???) so I will take my time at this point and make sure I cover all my options. While that's happening, I'm doing alot of small details you really cants see...taking off and repainting small brackets, re-modified the choke holder. Finally got side cover done on non carb side.... relocated the stock fuel pump, so those pics will follow once back on bike. Swapped out stock headlight for an Adjure, went with a blue dot tribar with pilot light. Will get a close up of this later...that pilot light is pretty wild looking. All brake and throttle lines were replaced with those new lines called "black pearl"....they are really sharp! Also what you'll see below is hand controls. I like to try and use the factory items when ever possible....just with a little twist. SO, Ive cut and reshaped the stock controls below, had the top res. cover milled so the words are no longer there and cut down as much as I could go. Also been sanding on them to give them a more smoother rounded look. Once controls are blacked out...I think they will look fine. I wont be running a mirror on these, so those "large" threaded holes will be taken care of!
Excuse the pics...they were done by cell phone.
