Recent mods
« on: May 06, 2013, 03:28:44 pm »
So since I have a bike to do some mods on and Brian is killing me cause everything he's doing to the 8 i can pretty much to to the 6, I'm interested...what mods have you done lately?  Big, small, whatever....inquiring minds wanna know!

I've added a battery tender lead to the 6 (I know not much of a mod) and should be receiving a fender eliminator in the mail tomorrow to get rid of my mud flap.  Would like to do an integrated brake light/turn signal...found one that seems to be very bright and signals are bright enough and large enough to be safely seen.  Here's the site for the tail light http://www.motodynamic.com/product_info.php?cPath=3_4_6&products_id=209&osCsid=m02una2b1909rafv9rrjkp3hk7  dont know if i'd rather do clear of smoke though...hmm...decisions decisions.

Oops....ill snap one on my lunch break and put it up.  :-[

Just as a reference here's a "before" shot with the mudflap. Actually it wasn't to bad (have seen a lot bigger) but it still had to go.



And yes I know my storage shed looks like a disaster area :34

I wanna ride that little one you got, forgot if it was a 175 or 125.! Any future exhaust or leaving it stock like you did your sv?

Its a 125. Got an oring on the kick starter that's leaking oil and just haven't got around to fixing it. Plus I need the carbs gone through but I've never done any carb work.

Definitely would like to put some exhaust on the 6...once I can get the $$ saved up!  Was going to put something different on the sv to, but well we all know how that turned out.

That look so much better. That spade shovel of a mudflap was rough.  :34
