Ideas for the Zixxer

started new thread

i am thinking about:
keeping it
buying those sick race rep plastics
black taller speed screen
vented black tail cowl
black gas tank
black pazzo levers,gold clicker
undertail kit
advance the timing
velocity stacks
pc3
velocity pro shift kit
flush turn sigs (damaged in crash)

and over the winter paint the frame and swing arm black and anything else that can be done ie black rear sets
just some thoughts or maybe just part it out and buy a bigger bike i dont know, but with these go fast goodies, i hope for the 125 hp mark,

the paper work has been filled and the title is getting switched to a salvage after this weeks work session so by next week the money should be here, 3.3k for go fast goodies, or money to put towards a new tw baby

If you REALLY love that bike and want to live with it for a long time then go for it.
All that work and expense for power and handling that can be achieved with a couple years newer bike is pretty hardcore but if you're into making it custom just for you,

Personally I would use the money towards a 750 as that seems like the amount of power your craving.

I still like the parting it out option... It's a real pain in the ass, but could be well worth it... Just don't do it until the fall...

Combo... Get it legal for the rest of the season and part it out later...

honestly i know i can get more money out of parting the bike out, but that is alot of time and effort when i have little time and almost no ambition, i just want a damn bike to ride

It is alot of work. I'd do it all for you but I charge hefty due to all the work. But in this case, all you do is bring the bike to me in one piece or close to it... I do everything else and send you, your take.

The last one I did was a buddies 954 that met a curb

Getting dropped off


The reason why, plus the subframe. But you can't tell is the whole frame is tweaked bad!


Oops... comin apart
