The naked has undergone some changes.

Gone is the LSL top triple and the std forks and 6spots.

I've got the helibars back on.

k7 gsxr1000 forks and radial calipers and k5 triples .

It's still on the bench but tomorrow we'll take her out and give it a test.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOhOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice work:thumbup

May I ask why you went from the LSL to the helibars? I have helibars and have been thinking about the LSL (or a home-brew version)/mx bar conversion for next summer....

LSL helibar?

I like the helibar height . Iliked handlebars too but not the right posie for me.

also the springs in the forks .92 were too heavy with handlebars but almost right with helibars.

wind was a problem too.

The gixxer forks are great just took her around the block and it steers and turns in just lovely , damping seems great just as it is , will have to have a play!!

I stayed with the 14mm master for convenience as its a bit of a fiddle to get the radial on the helibars and I want to ride it, the lever feel and ratio seems ideal. the brakes are great and thy're not even bedded in yet.

The triples are filed smooth and polished. the top triple has the been filed and polished and the top face milled flat to give it a nice texture. ( Its the ITSMESTEVE top triple cosmetic mod :thumbup)

Mate especially like the second pic, headlight set up looks good, I kept my sv stock brake master with the radial and it pulls up sweet so i dont think i will bother going to radial master although i do have one here to try out , also have a tlr brake master , may be an improvement over the stock sv unit ??? which is also 14mm i think

That looks great in the pics we have here...look forward to some more.
Don't usually like the naked conversions but that looks really purposeful.
That dash and headlight looks heaps better than others I have seen..
Look forward to some clearer side views!!!
Great Job

This is when I miss my old TLS.


I think what if....



Then, I look at my left arm and not so much.

I think of my daily pain in my right hip from my last accident, nearly three years (September 21 this year) now and think it's best I no longer have one.


Looks good though.

:cheers
