ConradM's winter build/project thread! ~PICS~

Before -



Before-



Parts Used/Work Done -

300mm rotors -
caliper spacers -
steel braided lines F&R -
brake pads F&R -


2008 swingarm -
swingarm bearings -
2008 rear axle -
2008 shock -
custom spacers and bracket -
swingarm spools -

Motion Pro throttle -
Dan Moto Carbon GP -
Exhaust Hanger -
Speedo DRD -
Chain and sprockets -

New rear stand -

Tore the bike down in december and started with fresh fluids -




Then it just kind of sat like this for a while I waited for parts to come in -


One of the first things to go on was the new throttle -




Snagged a full set of pads off ebay - HH sintered


Since the swingarm was coming off I decided to degrease behind the tranny -


Got the sub frame powder coated to match the 2008 swingarm -


Beard's spacer kit!


2008 swingarm and shock, new sprockets (+3) and new chain -


Finally swapping out the swingarm -




Once I got it all together, I thought it looked incomplete with so much gold in the front and the rear being completely blacked out.



So I ordered new, bigger rotors -


Also had to order a Speedo DRD for the gearing change -




Used a GPS app to calibrate -


Also added new brake lines F&R from CoreMoto with +2" on the rear line for the new swingarm.

And here is how it sits as of today -





Still need a front tire, but that'll go on at the end of the month.

I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I'm also pretty happy I planned everything out and actually followed through with it.
