Just recently did some maintenance/mods on the bike. Still looks a little rough as I haven't replaced the body work from my get-off at the track back in February. Also haven't been able to get a new front rim to match the rear yet.

Changes include new chain and sprockets, rear is a Sprocket Specialists Super-light 44 tooth, changed the rear rotor out for a Galfer wavey and will do the fronts when I get a new rim. Also just replaced the rear tire, hence the rather large chicken strips, I had taken the bike out for a short ride to scuff it in so was taking it easy when I took these pics.











Pic of the OPP Racing CF clutch cover. I was very disappointed with the finish quality of this piece so I painted it black. Notice all of the pits in the resin. The piece came like that.

$15 Target special. Found it in the luggage section. It attaches to the seat with 2 straps, one at the top (back of the seat where the "hook" is) and one at the front. The front one around the fat part of the seat I had to trim down a little as the bag is made to hang off your shoulder. I used safety pins to hold the strap in place on the bag, not on the seat. It doesn't move around at all as withnessed by friends riding behind me and is big enough to hold a 20oz drink, a hat, camera, cell phone, rag, so on and so forth.

Works perfectly for that ;) I also like the fact that is works well with the shape of the seat. Almost like it was made for it.

looks good how do you like that rear rotor was it worth the price?
Its pretty much just there for looks as I don't use the rear brake very often. And I needed a second rotor as I have 2 sets of rims, one for track and one for street. Price was $121 so its not too outrageously expensive.

Currently I only have the rear, still watching ebay for the front but I'm not in huge hurry for it. Think I got the rear for around $150 on ebay. Its got a few dings in it but its straight and works fine so I ain't too worried about it.

It very well could have been a K-mart or something similar. I actually started with one of those fanny bags which actually worked good because you can also just put the straps around the seat and it wont go any where. Only problem with those is they are kind of small most of the time.

I started peeling stickers off the bike as soon as I got it. The flames just didn't do it for me. I do like the overall color of the bike tho
