Installed Holeshot FE with flush mounts 06 sv650s <pics 56k eh>

Finished Holeshot fender eliminator this morning, took about 3 hours total, keep in mind this was the first time i had taken apart anything on this bike, let alone any bike. Like previous posters have said, doing it again it would take no time at all.

Anyway, figured id post pics since most ppl post they did the FE but dont actually get any pics up. The right blinker is off by a very very little due to a screw up on my part when applying the adhesive back, but its so close im not worried about it. Definitely give the holeshot a thumbs up!

Very nice. How's it using that type of stand? Looks weird.

Its the pitbull front handle stand. It is extremely easy to take your bike up and down with it on that side, at least IMO it is. You can much more easily balance the bike while propping it up on the stand, and likewise for going down. Feels extremely stable too.

I knew it was a Pit and knew it had to be good. I just never asked anyone how it was using it.

Looks good. Now get you a Holeshot pipe and wake that thing up. Trust me, the street core sounds real good when you wind them up, but nice and mellow around town and less than half the weight of the stocker.

I think it was about 130 from holeshot.


And i definitely plan on getting the Holeshot High Mount in the next month or two, just gotta wait for the wife to forget i just spent 300 on various motorcycle things.

Im not a mechanic at all so i never care about my garage, my entertainment center computers is a reflection on me =p, im an uber tech nerd.
