I can't put the tail plastics back on, that's a '01+ tank. And I have an '01+ seat to go with it. I think the parts are off an '04... I'm just gonna go with that, because they came from an F. I love this newer seat though, it's wider under my ass and way more comfortable than that skinny little stock one. Tank is bigger as well, makes the bike feel substantial  :icon_mrgreen:

Nice man, are you going to rig up the 01+ rear plastics? And how easy was it to mount 01+ tank? Just drill two holes and your good on the side of the frame or what?

No plans for new plastics. My rear subframe is tweaked, so I'm gonna chop about a foot off the back, fiberglass a small little fender/tail that hugs the bottom line of the seat, and houses an LED tail light off some newer bike.

Also will be chopping about 6-8 inches from the seat as well and recovering it, hence why I bought one with a rip in it.

New tank and seat require NO modification to put on the bike. Tank bolts up to the exact same place, seat clicks into the same place. Only real difference is the 01+ rear subframe is a little more upswept and has a different place for the rearward rest on the seat bottom. But once again, in going with a custom tail, none of that applies to me

What do handlebar risers look like? I've never actually seen them, but if they aren't ugly I may be intersted lol

The ones I was looking to buy: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-up-1-25-bk-Handlebar-Risers-GS500E-GSX650F-DR650SE-in-Black-/251222339655?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3a7e04b047&vxp=mtr

They also have ones that just do a straight lift. Shown here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-up-1-25-bk-Handlebar-Risers-GS500E-GSX650F-DR650SE-in-Black-/251222339655?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item3a7e04b047&vxp=mtr

BUT..if you just wanted a traight lige you can get by cheaper by getting a second set of stock clamps, flipping one upside down, and getting longer screws from the hardware store.

I really liked the look of these best, but not the price.

Hmm interesting. I was thinking you would cover up the electronics and what not better, or are you going to relocate them?

You should post a picture of your speedometer, I was thinking of doing a single thing like that. Do you still have nuetral, indicators, highbeam, and oil dash lights?

I was planning on relocating the electrical stuff to inside the frame rails, taking out the stock rear fender area, and making an undertail to free up some space for the mounting of said electronics.

Speedometer has none of the idiot lights. I bought this bike without gauges so have no bezel or anything. It's basically an L Bracket on there from each mounting hole of the stock gauges that I put a Drag Specialties speedometer on

 :woohoo:


Went to my buddies shop and re did the exhaust yesterday. Took the broken, jingle bells sounding baffle out, and had the muffler tig welded back on, and the stainless tip welded up properly. It's quite a bit louder, a lot meaner sounding, but I've got a feeling I realllllly need to rejet

In more fun news, I just ordered a lunchbox filter, and sent The Buddha a message about re-jetting. I'm stupid excited!

Wish I could put my thoughts together enough to just make one post...

Anyways, figured I'd take and share a few pics of the bike as it sits now, with the exhaust finally welded up properly and the leaks gone, and all the old stuff on it... Including the busted ass tank I want to destroy it looks so bad (But it's for sale if anyone wants one for a demolition derby GS?)

Its alright. I have seen this picture before too. The tail looks kind of out of place, but that could be because the exhaust is still stock. If you go this route you eliminate all passenger options. Obvious as it may be, sometimes you really wish you had a passenger seat!

My exhaust is a lot shorter than that anyway, so I don't think it'd be an issue! I'd have no grab bar either, and use a tail light more like the SV650 than the stock GS one. I just thought it was a cool little design I could do pretty easily

Ya its cool looking for sure. More like a rat bike/street fighter than a cafe racer if you ask me. But your club man bars would definitely look better than the stock bars in that picture, and the sv650 would be much nicer than the stock in that picture haha.

The more I look around, the more I want to do a fighter tail. I'll classify it after I do what I'm gonna do lol it'll be some hybrid

Take a look at this thread from do the ton, might inspire you on a tail design.

I was mesmerized with this guys work and read the whole thing while I should have been writing a report.

The pictures don't work in that thread.... Or maybe I need an account to be on to see them? Either way, can you link a picture or 2 into this thread so I can see them? Please!

Lunch box and rejet happened last night! Oh my god the difference is sound is intoxicating. Its got a growl now! Power picked up a bit, I was hoping for more but hey, its only a small mod lol. Idle is great now too, I don't think it will hang anymore but I'll know today after my long test ride to work.

Question: when I rev the thing in neutral, as the revs.come back down right before it hits idle speed it'll spit a flame out the pipe... that would be a rich idle mixture right?
