The seat is looking cool & those riser's look good too, who are they made by?

The Risers should've come with the top yoke. It's all from Streetfighterstore.co.uk.
The Risers were on back order from Moto CSC? in Germany?
SFS are getting deliveries in dribs and drabs apparently.
They should be sending me some Fat Bars, they were the cheapest I could find!
Love your Carbon Bars Griz but you'd said they were expensive so I didn't want to get my hopes up !

The Grider issue is a bummer. Hand sawing an filling is doin me in. violin

Back to it tomorrow.

The blade is at my father-in-law's so I'm going with all me goodies
and aint comin home til I've got the front end done! hyper

Fingers crossed Laughing

Looks like you made some good progress today Fringe.

Do you think the fairing might be better tilted back a bit as the headlights look as though they are looking at the floor, lacking in confidence?
As a fighter might it also look better if it lost both the mirror mount sections and the touring DB screen?

But don't cut it down following my suggestions and then blame me after! Laughing

Are you using fairing lowers as well Fringe?

Thanx for the input, It makes me think twice/cut once rofl
I'm hoping the nose down makes it seem like it's lookin at ya n scowling! Laughing
yep, i'm not too sure about the screen either but that can change later.
the lights are either goin to be remounted to correct the droop or I'll be fitting projector beams in their place. ? Laughing
The mirrors I wanna keep, I wanna make 'em look like HORNS rofl
just a belly pan to be added. The only one I like is a German one an its 's. N that;ll depend on how I route the Zorst! hyper
But this mite all change!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's an interesting idea horns, rather like the sound of that; especially if from a car drivers rear view they they appeared like long horns being grasped by the rider.
