V 2.0 Winter Build Underway



Started tearing the bike down for my winter build. I originally was going to do an EBOZ replica, but I think I am just doing what ever comes to mind. So far I am planning on doing a full tear down so I can get the frame powder coated. Not sure if I want to do brushed aluminum with clear, gun metal, or gloss black. I'm working on making some parts out of aluminum and cutting stuff off to drop weight. If money allows I am going to be adding some nifty go fast stuff as well.

Just a few basics, new muffler, jet kit, air tray, rear shock. I have a friend who is gonna help me mill some stuff like rear tank mount, dog bones, and other stuff.
I am almost done hacking up the subframe, and fabricating some brackets out of aluminum for the tail light, igniter and seat.

I just about have the frame completely stripped down, just waiting on the socket for the swingarm. Still not sure on the frame color, any opinions on brushed vs cosmic grey or gunmetal vs black?



I also got my coil bracket, should be helpful when I eventually get the airbox tray.

Good dilemma on frame color choice.
I guess i would have to decide based on what i was doing with the wheels.

So what are you doing with wheels?

I had the same dilemma, I did my frame black and did the engine covers and rims laser gun metal. I love the way it turned out.

Did you leave the rims bare in color or did you add any rim stickers after paint to make them pop a little

Alright, been a while since I updated but you know life can get busy.

So at this point I am going to do a black frame, and leave the wheels and clutch cover cosmic grey. I am thinking eventually I want to do a paint scheme similar to the 30th Anniversary Ninjas, but OD green instead of Kawi green and safety orange wheels. I was going to brush it but the frame had to many scratches and nicks in it, I think it would have looked like shit. The frame is completely torn down at this point, I am going to blast it this afternoon and hopefully drop it off to my friend for powder this weekend. After I get done re-doing my bathroom I am going to start tackling the little things that bothered me from last year like the wiring harness.

I have been working on getting some stuff designed for the bike on breaks at work :)




I have a bracket similar to the ZX-RR brackets that CCM has posted, but I think these will be easier and cheaper to make. Next up is the rear fuel tank bracket, and working out an idea for the lower radiator/fairing mounts.

Also does anyone know what band is used with that coil bracket? I know the kit coil bracket uses a battery band (pn#92072-1173 which has been replaced by 92072-1384). Is there anything else that I need?

Also does anyone know a good place to order a factory pro jet kit? I tried ordering one from solomoto parts but they don't carry it any more.

Have you seen the Radator and Cluster Brackets on Ebay. I just got them in and they look great. If you do the tank and Fair brackets, i hope you consider making some extras. I would be interested.
