Finally started modifying my own bike...

Here's my poor man's MV...

I left my bike stock for a long, long time but recently decided to start doing little things to it. Just thought I'd share with you guys...

Before:


Stock bike

After:

Side view


Angled view


Shorty CRG 6-way adjustable levers


My chief tech Jimmy is an expert at cutting fairings for frame sliders!!!


Some bling...


Vroom vroom...


I still don't know if these make a difference...


Cleans up the rear end a lot...

Mods:
Arrow titanium slip-ons
Power Commander III
Ohlins steering damper
Woodcraft-CFM frame sliders
K&N air filter
Brembo red wheels
Vortex Racing brake & clutch reservoir caps
Aprilia upper cowling baffles
Dzus fastener kit
Powerstands fender eliminator kit

Next week:
Puig light-smoke racing windscreen
Woodcraft-CFM rearsets with GP-shift

Probably in the near future:
Track plastics
Galfer wave rotors
RaceTech fork springs & gold valve kit
Lightening the stock flywheel

Looking to do some DIY mods next like lightening the flywheel and enlarging the airbox.

Shawn,

If that front sliders mount to your frame, I would remove that as it could cause a hole in your frame rendering it an automatic total loss during a crash (But that might be a good thing ).

I pulled my flywheel off all together when I put the 100cc pistons in. The engine spins up beautifully now.

Well, frame sliders are meant to prevent excessive damage in the event of a crash but if you crash hard enough that even the frame slider brackets cause a hole in the frame, I think that would be the least of your worries. Most well-designed race frame sliders mount to the frame and are track proven, like the Woodcraft sliders. Where else would they mount if not the frame? Definitely not the fairings, right? Give me more info and your thoughts...I'm interested in hearing more since you have race experience yourself. You race a Duc?

How does it idle?

Thanks...
