One step closer...

to turning my bike into a full track bike! I got the track plastics fitted tonight. Attack Performance.





And the view gix4kix will be seeing monday at MMP...



Next up, new gearing and a full titanium exhaust. After that, maybe some new springs, but my weight is luckily a little on the light side for this bike.

Like the asshat above said, it'll be as close to kawi green as I can cheaply get. Thinking about bright blue off-centered racing stripe down the top of the bike. Either blue or some obnoxious orange or red.

The paint is the cheap DupliColor engine paint available at AutoZone and Wal Mart (Grabber Green for those with kawis). I put some clear on it, but of course already managed to get a couple of chips just putting the plastics on. Oh well, it still looks pretty good. There's a few spots that could stand some buffing, but it's not worth the effort.

And it's a ZX6R (636).
