screwing around with bodywork here and there.  Finally sorted out the rear pillion cover mount for the most part.  Need to wet sand with 5000 grit, cut and polish,....eventually.


fender mounts redone and seem ok.  Might be too close on rotor side.  May need an extra washer or two in there to give it more clearance.

Been hating the round headlight so trying out a new one.





This is just the bodywork for the light.  Need to clear it and get it ready to mount.  I think it goes better with the bike's lines than the round headlight. 

Thx show for your input too

messing around with this headlight set up.  Maybe I need to move it back a little.  Any critics? :laugh:
I did take it out for a few passes and my forks with sonics springs are fookin amazing!  Bow and respect to Mr. Desmond!  My exhaust was scraping on turns and now it is GOOD.  Really happy with that.
Need to make some side panels, clean up, and,...I'm sure there'll be something else to do,...
