Default Project "I dont know what Im doing"

This is the reason I've been slacking on the hardody. Picked this up for 1500. 01 600 katana with 11k on it.



Put a different tail section on ( this is the rear from the p/o , mine has much more wear on the sides lol )


Then I,"streetfightered" the front


Now Im waiting on my turn signals ,tires ( Im on my third set cause I got defective ones from continental ) and mirrors. Also wondering if anyone has experience with these gauges from china since my factory ones are bulky and ugly now that I dont have a fairing to hide it behind

Looks like death, lol. I have the heart to be a biker but not the skill or patience for it. Too many idiots on the road that never see you.

The other day coming to work at 0330 I seen a guy that attached 1 inch square pieces of reflective material all over his jacket and bags. Must have been 20 or 30 little dangling squares. From 1/2 mile away this guy looked like a UFO, but it worked.

Looks real nice though. I had a friend that had a Kawasaki Ninja or gsxr. Big bike too 1000+. I remember it was mostly white, with green, gold, and purple. Was perfect for down here mardi gras colors. It got stole.

So you don't like working on them anymore? Still a rider though?

Ah this is so true man. I was an apprentice panel beater for 3 years. I still love fixing things for friends and family and playing on my own projects but, to hell with working in the industry its horrible.

OP, I love streetfighters, I've always wanted to do a 636 as a Streetfighter but I never seem to get around to it.

I have a rigid harley davidson frame sitting in my back room waiting for an engine so i'll probably do that first

nice - I had a katana as my first bike... great choice! they are a little on the dated side in both looks and mechanics but if your fast on a kat you can be fast on anything

I would setup the suspension for your weight (correct springs, droop etc), get 1" longer dog bones for the rear, drop the forks .5-ish" in the triples, go -1 on the front sprocket, get a decent slip-on, sticky rubber, aggressive brake pads and steel braided lines... then ride the wheels off it

Not my first. Just my first in a long time. Probably gonna only keep it till winter. Had a couple offers on it already. Building up my credit with the truck and saving a little of m commission checks with the new job so I can hopefully wrap up the hardbody and get a new bike come spring
