vzerominus is local too. We should arrange for a little get together sometime. Before the 17th... I'm headed out of town for a few weeks after that.

Re: Dory - a blue K6 Naked - Comment thread

So, I'm to the point where I need to cut a hole in the toolbox for the shock reservoir. I have a fender delete kit installed by PO - is there an easy way to cut the box without removing it (and and the electronics) from the bike? Or is it just a b***h either way?

Re: Dory - a blue K6 Naked - Comment thread

IIRC I left it in and cut it. If you have a dremel it would help. When I finally did the swingarm swap I had to get rid of the toolbox so I had to take it out and cut it. I also put in a zx6r shock after the gsxr one.

Re: Dory - a blue K6 Naked - Comment thread

Thanks LS! Guess I'll have to hit the HW Store for a better cutting bit/blade for my dremel... I don't have one suitable for plastic that I can reach in there with. *sigh.* Had to put it back together with the original shock. At least it's clean - was able to clean up all the lower links, too.

Nice build thread...I almost posted on it
Interesting stuff going on with your setup since the rear shock install. How much did it drop your rear? Did you set the shock up?
