we dont exactly have winters here, but feeling it for all those back east, we decide

to do some winter projects like those in the snow country, @ chmoto of course.
More later.

1st overkill, fabricating a diecast/forged piece bracket(art) for the tire temp and pressure sensor :






Painted carbon art :



a BMC filter given to me by Bruce, the super moded white 980R guy :
to get to it, its a project all in itself. But my CH boys did it in 30 minutes or less!!

dirty stock one :


new louder one :





new 002 type 3s :


Then finally, Bruce's super moded 980R gets a new carbon windscreen from CHMOTO's japan connection and a clutch MC helper.
The screen is actually the best i've seen and thats saying a lot. The carbon fiber quality is on par with those from MV corse. Too bad my camera sucks, but dont worry folks, im getting a cell with a 5 mpeg camera soon.

hahahaha! i feel for u, i used to live in michigan for 10 years. Pick up some parts and start working on ur cold bike, or better yet, pick up that chinese game majong, and u wont have cabin fever. Thats how i did it when i lived in Ann Arbor, MI. Absolutely nothing to do there. Atleast u have new york near by.

Sorry, but I've seen your area a couple of times.

I'll take four months of cold and snow.

Yep, weatherman in Indy is saying we get 4-8" on Saturday. And we had ice last weekend.

But see, guys like you and me...we got something to look forward to.

Warm weather.
