Hatta's official, licenced, copyrighted, never duplicated build thread!!

So I'm finally putting up a build thread. I've set up a discussion thread HERE!!! for all your conversing needs. Go ahead, comment, throw out ideas. Just be respectful. It is MY bike that your commenting on after all.

I bought the bike in June 09 (just before my 28th birthday) from another member on here, Dragon, with 23271 on the odo.

As I bought it, it was fitted like this:

**Following parts all color matched in Suzuki's metal-flake yellow, I think it's called 'pearl flash yellow' or something.**
chin fairing
seat cowl
radiator shrouds
rear hugger/chain guard
bellypan
*****
**carbon fiber:**
tank protector
gas cap/surround
triple cover
ignition panel cover
and the little triangle part on the sides between the seat and the tank
*****
Corbin rider and passenger seat with carbon fiber look and yellow piping
Goodridge Braided Steel brake lines
upgraded front fork springs
Bikemaster Daytona handlebar
2" CRG Blindsight bar-end mirrors
Clear Alternatives integrated turn signals w/clear lenses
Rumble Concepts license plate bracket ('SV' laser-cut into it, plus white LED for license light)
mini front LED turn signals
Scorpion exhaust
Pirelli Diablo Supersport tires

What it looked like the day I brought it home.

FIRST, I had to give it a nickname. The first time I saw pictures of it, it reminded me of a scorpion, so that is it's name.

then I found a guy on ebay who makes custom wheel stripes for people. I sent him what I wanted:



he made the set for $16 shipped. They are VERY reflective, which looks great when light is on them at night. It was my first time applying pre-curved stripes, so they aren't perfectly placed, but they're good enough.

next, I acquired some front fork covers from a BMW k1200r, and experimented to see how they would look. I'm not sure about them yet, so they're still in a box.

Replaced the rear tire with a Pirelli Diablo Rosso, still have the Diablo supersport on the front. I also removed the Suzuki 'S' from the gas tank, and the dragon vinyl left over from the original owner. I found some scorpion emblems and placed them on the bike in asymmetrical positions. I also found a keychain with a real scorpion in a melted-amber/resin mix.

Re: Hatta's official, licenced, copyrighted, never duplicated build thread!!

next.. probably a zx10r shock; I'll probably paint the fork lowers and triples flat black; pazzo short levers.. though I can't decide between these colors:





and most likely this tail:


but I need to find a good tail light to go under there

so this is where she stands right now:

Re: Hatta's official, licenced, copyrighted, never duplicated build thread!!

Ok boyohs (and girlies), I've got two 06-07 zx10r shocks, one gold/red (not really gold, more like a brass/bronze color) and one black/silver from an SE. I need help deciding which one will look better with my bike colors.
Personally, I think the black/silver will go better with the colors, but it doesn't stand out. it looks very similar to the factory shock colors. I was thinking about painting one of the springs yellow to match, but I don't know what paint will survive the flexing of the spring without flaking off.

So gimme opinions! which color, what paint could I use that you KNOW won't flake from flexing, etc.

Re: Hatta's official, licenced, copyrighted, never duplicated build thread!!

i forgot when I made this thread, that I also installed a Stebel Nautilus compact twin air horn on the bike. Saying that it's loud doesn't do it justice. It's REALLY loud. Perfect for when people try to merge into me.

This is the best mounting location I found that puts it at the angle stated in the manual, and leaves it in a discreet location.
