'04 650S -> Streetfighter

Well, hey everyone!

I'm working on a basic conversion from a 2004 650S to a streetfighter look, I hope it looks good when its all done, but here are some pics to start off... If you have any questions (Doubtful for right now) PM me!

This is when I got the bike!


And then without the lower fairings that were sold...



Right now, with just the bar end mirrors on, I have only tried with them looking up, I may switch them around and see how they feel!



More is coming soon! All of my parts should (hopefully) be here by Friday

Re: '04 650S -> Streetfighter

Small update, got the Vapor speedo to actually work with the battery! Took a few try's (Was just being special I guess...) but when that thing went on, man I was happy!

Now to set up the rest of it (which seems easy, and it gives me an excuse to drain my coolant!) and then work at my headlight...
If anyone has bought that headlight before can you PM me? I have some wiring questions..

Oh.. and I got the thing up on a friends stand, and WOW
I need one

Re: '04 650S -> Streetfighter

Smaller update than yesterdays, I hooked up more parts of the vapor speedo, and bought parts to mount it and parts to mount my new headlight (Woo!)
But hit a road-bump at trying to drain the coolant for the temp sensor, and well stripped the bolt to all hell, so new project for tomorrow!

Re: '04 650S -> Streetfighter

Well, sadly I haven't been able to work on the bike till today, but! I got my new vapor speedometer mounted and holding to the upper triple, looks pretty darn good too!

And I also got all of the wiring done for my new headlight (Courtesy of Borkas (?) on the forums, honestly its an awesome headlight, well worth the money!)
And I even have the headlight half mounted so far, and I haven't been out on the road in two weeks and it killed because we had a few days of 80+ weather, but I just need to mount the bottom of the headlight somehow and I'll be posting pictures and be out and about on it!

Re: '04 650S -> Streetfighter

Here are the pictures I said I would put up! The only part I haven't put on yet is the chin spoiler, and that will come soon! (When I have the time to put it on!)

The new vapor speedo I put on,

(Ignore all of the wires! I'm thinking I'll put a plastic cover over it and drill holes in the side and zip tie them to something!)


Thats the shiny new headlight! Very excited to have it finally on the bike! sorry its blurry!

Re: '04 650S -> Streetfighter

I think it looks pretty good all together, it's not as high as the one on Borkas's bike, but I like it where it is..

I just need to do the bottom mount for it when I get the time, and to throw on the chin spoiler, but here are some pictures of it where it stands after my ride the other day!

Re: '04 650S -> Streetfighter

Nothing crazy done today, just added the chin spoiler, I think the black looks good in contrast to the rest of the bike.. But if I don't like it I'll just get it painted yellow!





Left to do -
  • Do the lower mount brackets for the headlight
  • Make a semi-cover for the top of the headlight to cover the wires!
  • Heat the butt-splices up to melt the edges to make it look better
