Changed the look of my 2012
« on: Nov 11, 2012, 08:12:34 PM »
I can't leave anything alone!

With less than 500 km's on my bike I did a few things.

Mods include:

Satin Black powdercoated the rims, pulley, cush drive, front rotors and rear rotor cover

Swapped out the rear for a 240 Metz

Cobra Speedster Swept exhaust with 12 o'clock EXUP eliminator

Stiletto Seat

Blaster X integrated tailight with Custom LED flasher relay

LED front signals - YES I drilled those pieces

Colour matched the belt guard to swingarm

Deleted front horn, reflectors, passenger pegs and tank trim

Switched the rear axel around so belt can be adjusted without removing exhaust

GEL PRO GRIPS

Some misc chrome pieces

Finished it all yesterday and was lucky to get a 15 degree day today so I could go try it out, probably the last ride of the season  :(

I like the turn signal idea.  Very creative and a nice easy solution.  I might just steal your idea from you  ;D
260 Rear Tire, Freedom Curves exhaust, DIY BAK, DIY integrated turn signals, DIY sidemount plate.  More to come.

The placement for visability is good and the metal is very soft so it's easy to drill.

It also is easy to hide the wiring.

I have a few more things to do over the winter.

Source a pair of black calipers or paint mine.

I rode yesterday and I did not notice any fueling issues with the Cobra's but maybe if it is warm out then I might find the need to install a Power Pro, I have heard if I leave the air box stock then the Cobra swept work fine without a fuel management system?

I was not a fan of the plain tank emblems so I removed them but I am not against some type of emblem being on there so I have ordered a pair of tank emblems for a 2012 Stratoliner Deluxe, I like the new design of them.

I really wanted to do the signals like yours. Looks great but doesn't work with a batwing...........
