Finally started modifying my own bike...

I left my bike stock for a long, long time but recently decided to start doing little things to it. Just thought I'd share some pictures with you guys and girls here...

Before:


Stock bike

After:

Side view


Angled view


Shorty CRG 6-way adjustable levers


My chief tech Jimmy is an expert at cutting fairings for frame sliders!!!


Some bling...


Vroom vroom...


I still don't know if these make a difference...


Cleans up the rear end a lot...

Mods:
Arrow titanium slip-ons
Power Commander III
Ohlins steering damper
Woodcraft-CFM frame sliders
K&N air filter
Brembo red wheels
Vortex Racing brake & clutch reservoir caps
Aprilia upper cowling baffles
Dzus fastener kit
Powerstands fender eliminator kit

Next week:
Puig light-smoke racing windscreen
Woodcraft-CFM rearsets with GP-shift

Probably in the near future:
Track plastics
Galfer wave rotors
RaceTech fork springs & gold valve kit
Lightening the stock flywheel

I'm still waiting for them to find some springs that'll fit my bike!!!

I have their sticker on my bike because they shared our booth with us at the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show last year and I always support our sponsors and the manufacturers that we work with.

as in they are out of stock, or they dont currently offer any for your forks?

They don't have anything specific for the 2004-2007 RSV1000R bikes yet so they have to take some measurements and see what they can cross reference it with and make fit.

We've worked closely with them in the past...at shows/ expos, races and we also order quite a bit from them.

Yes, I did. I technically still own it (well, I have the frame and title ) but have parted it out and kept the aftermarket parts to build up another Duc (track bike?) in the future. I just picked up a wrecked Ducati 996 a few weeks ago to salvage more parts off it and am looking to pick up a Ducati 916 complete track bike from Northern California in the next few weeks if I can get some funds together.

First off... Can I hump it?

Second, nice Arrow! And why red wheels? Not that I don't like them... I think it adds some more attention... just curious. Plus what did they run and are they magnuisum or CF?

The stock dark grey wheels were just too boring, esp. since the silver and grey of the bike's fairings don't really jump out at you either. I wanted some colour for the bike.

Surely you jest about me getting carbon fibre wheels. I have a small motorcycle performance shop, not a big dealership...I cannot afford carbon fibre wheels!!!

Magnesium is also not suitable for any bike that sees many miles of street-use. So yes, they are just aluminium wheels...
