    the back of that tail needs to come down... alot.

    and a subframe that doesnt use that lower bolt hole, like a hiperform, would be cool

      Is that an R6 tail? Check out stevejhows bike pics- you should be inspired by that. What tank is that from?

            Oh god... Renthals. (j/k)

            I like the kicked-up tail... I do agree you should look at HiPerform subframes though.

            Very Euro-Streetfighter... of which I'm a major fan (just not a big fan of Rennies ). Nice.

              The tail end is a 03 r1 end. i have the bars and centre stand on for the moment for easy movement and work. Working on hiding all the wires at the moment. I have the subframe moved from its origional top mount to the shock mount. gives it the real jacked up look i want. Gotta love the fighters. Oh yeah i have a hugger in the post from Germany. Should be here any day now.

                  I don't have the vortex bars but I do have their sprocket set- nice machining.

                    I have a Vortex set. They kick ass. Worth every penny, especially if you need to replace a bent handlebar - they're replaceable, as you just swap them out and keep the clip.

                    If I had it to do over again though (these were a gift), I'd go with the Woodcraft ones that split in a "clamshell" style. That way, if you want to drop them under the top triple or bring them up top again, you can do so without any hassle (in other words, the forks don't have to come out!). My wife likes to ride with me with the clamps over the triple, and I like them low. My solution is to have two sets of clamps. I haul out the extras when she wants to ride. Takes 10 minutes to switch

                      The tail is frickin sweet and really cleans up the bike, but...

                      That is going to crush your balls like a meat and metal sandwich. I'd strongly recommend you drop the angle of the seat.

                      I think the stock seat is a bad enough ball crusher as is. I can't imagine what it'd be like to ride that. Half your energy would be going toward pushing your balls away from the tank.

                          I read somewhere that handlebars, like flags, should NEVER touch the ground!!

                              heres my thought

                              that line formed along the tail points down.. that line under the tank points much flatter.

                              for the bike to look right, they must intersect at a shallower angle.

                              you want that jacked-up rear look... so flatten the tail out some so you can ride it, but tilt the tank so that its meeting angle comes in better.


                              the bike will look cleaner, and be better to ride, while still being very agressive looking....


                              just a thought.
