Re: My sv rat terd...

that needs a little more dirt and a few more miles before it can be called a rat turd

but it looks like it has a start, don't put too much bling on it, add practical accessories or modifications that pay for themself with reduced maintenance cost and your personal convenience, spend your money on gasoline

Yeah I am definitely avoiding bling. So far all I've done is put a 520 chain on and a superlite steel spockets kit (stock 15/45).

I bondo'ed my tank and it's ready for a paint job whenever I get my lazy ass motivated to do it. I have full fairings ready to be painted too--going for flat black (using 2 stage Eastwood flat black paint).

One thing I definitely would like to splooge on is new rear sets...and maybe some new frame sliders since my current sliders have been crashed 2 times already.

Re: My sv rat terd...

Looks like the paint job is going to have to wait. I just low sided on a back road and went into a ditch. Cut grass on a hard left did me in.

And just so everyone knows, Teknic Mercury Pants SUCK!
