My winter project was a little re-working of my baby. Lets see i did paint, shortie M4's, solo tail, custom muffler brackets, CCC, powder coated the rims and pressure plate, Corbin seat, new clutch/springs/brakes/, rebuild fuel injectors, the list goes on! Anyhow I have a new love of my baby, hope you like!

Dude, I love the old Gulf Paint scheme. Never thought of doing it on a bike. Looks awesome!

Yeah I grew up watching the old GT40's and Porsches racing. So the scheme came to mind, and after doing a little googling, Ducati ran the 1098 in the Endurance championship, sponsored by Gulf, great looking bikes!

The M4's are a weeeeee bit louder than my full length pair, but i'm told not annoyingly loud, so lets say they sound just right! If you ever wanna hear, we're at Toby's off 128th Thursday evenings for our club meetings.........more than welcome

Might not be able to make it this Thursday since I'm still waiting for parts but I'll try for next week. Local TLRs may be getting together for a ride soon as well.

A little off topic, but I did the plus mod and charging mod with the Shindengen FH012AA R/R and it turned out excellent. If you decide to go that route let me know and I can assist.

I think that the bike looks a bit "naked" in certain areas such as the tail and tank. Maybe a few more graphics? Otherwise good choice of colours and scheme, it turned out well!

E56, i'll take you up on that for sure, anytime you wanna swing by and help out i'll take it!

As for more graphics, i'm contemplating number plates, just white 'stickers' in the usual spots, i'm also talking to my Graphics guy about creating a Team Gulf/Suzuki logo, not sure where it would go........Thanks for the input though, it is on the radar, but it will still remain simple......Let the lines speak for themselves!
