okay guys, i somehow lost track of last months bonus check from work and then just found it a couple days ago so i figured i might as well use it on a digi cam. i ended getting a sony dsc-w30 cybershot and am really happy with it so far. i snapped a couple pics of the bike for ya taht are a lot better than last time so enjoy.

this is in lamoille canyon. i think it could be a fun ride but it was about 30* out when i took this i'm surprised my fingers worked enough to push the button BRRRRRR..

the backside of my bike



the front and admittedly better looking side of my bike



a shot to show the mini hugger/mudflap and homemade heelgaurds out of diamondplate



okay now that you guys can have a better look at it what is the verdict on the bedliner paintjob?

thats cool everyone entitiled to their opinon. i just couldn't see the point in shelling out $1500+ for a decent paintjob when i know it would get f#cked up as hard as i play on my TLR. this way it looks good and if it goes down i can just pick it back up and be on my merry way. next up i need to finish the crash cage.

I love it.:) Big fan of the use of diamondplate, and bedliner. I also have used both on my tiller. And **** anybody who thinks you must be a dumb truck driver to do so.:rant
But ya know its NOT a real fighter till you loose the clip-ons and throw some Renthals on there. :rant
Keep up the good work and take pride in your DIY ways. Any asshole can throw 5 grand at bike to make it look sick.
Heres what I did with bedliner and diamondplate. I would advise painting it if your as lazy as me. :laugh


I also threw some on the rear sets:devious


Got a litttle nutty here and decided it was to much. Had a lot of fun making the stuff.:O

thanks for the comps maynard. much appreciated. i am planning doing about the same thing for my undertail as what you did to yours. i like those rear sets what brand are they? i want to do rearsets soon but i might just make up some DIY setback plates for the stockers.

i haven't decided if i want to throw some renthals on it or not. maybe i should just call it my cafe fighter project as the look i'm going for incorporates aspects of both into it.

Just found some spare diamondplate laying around. Going to try out making a hugger VERY similar to yours:laugh Thanks for the blueprint.:laugh
Trying to figure out how to incorporate a lincence plate holder with it. :devious Then do it powdercoat or bedliner?:O AHH I love mod season.:)
BTW the rear sets are Pro-Tec's powdercoated blue.
Come on, just throw the Renthals on.:devious

making the hugger wasn't hard at all to do. i basically cut out a rounded elongated triangle shape.. well more like the shape if you pounded a little garden spade flat anyways. then i took it laid it on my rear tire and started bending it to the curve of the tire by hand. then i used the leg of my friends shop table and used that to deepen the curve. then it was just a matter of sitting it on and off the bike and finding where i needed to grind clearance. you will have to grind a medium sized notch a little off of center on the bottom because of the suspension linkage pivots. i then just bought some little 90 degree brackets from home depot and bent them to the angle i wanted it to sit at. there was even two small holes already threaded in the swingarm that i used to fasten it down with. if you look close in the pic you can see it.
