Yeah, 6061 alloy, then used various grades of scotchbrite to give it the "brushed" look ...

NICE!!!    :21

Oh and i saw the pic of it installed on the other thread.  It looks really good.  I tried to come up with a radiator grill cover with flames cut into it at my last job, but the CNC we had just couldn't handle that small of a precision job.  I think the issue was that we didn't have any cutting heads small enough for the job.

Had to modify it slightly .. So version 2.0 seems to be working good now. V1.0 didn't have enough clearance under the rear foot peg bracket, so I had to cut it back I tad more .....

OH, I finally got to ride it to work tonight !!!!! Woot Woot !!!
It performed flawlessly so far ... It is a tad choppy/lopey at idle and just off idle, so it will need carbs sync'd for sure.....
And the suspension still needs to be set up .....
Other than that, perfect !!

Well, I got the new HID's installed, FINALLY wired in my LED dash indicator lights, cleaned up the wiring up front, then found out my license plate light is loose and rattling ... :banghead ... that requires me to take the entire back end of the bike apart to gain access to those two little bolts .... :banghead
I am going to drill access holes into the inner rear fender liner while I have it apart this time ....

I will try and get pics when I get home tonight, it was late last night when I finished ....So I didn't take pics ...OH, and I am installing a 12v power take off while I have the upper fairing off too. It will be in on Wednesday. That way I can power my Polaroid XS 100 action cam, and keep the phone charged ....

here's a pic, not much to see really ....I secured the digital ballasts to my headlamp/fairing support frame. And the 12v power to my CF dash plate. And all of the indicator lights are finally hooked up now too. I still have to secure my front T signal wires and heat shrink the connections, but that will take 10 min ....
