Very nice. What is your front end off of a Gixer? If so what model year. Your swing arm has been streched a few inches huh? I usually dont like that but it looks good on yours. I was going to run a stripe just like that. Where can I look at the engine covers you are talking about?
99 SRAD GSXR 750. The swingarm is STOCK and NOT stretched. I hate that crap. Stretched, lowered bikes belong on a dragstrip period.

I ordered the engine cover direct from woodcraft www.woodcraft-cfm.com
I agree man I hate a streched swingarm too for some reason yours looked streched maybe b/c it is black and black makes things look longer than they are.

Well, nate's sliders got here today. They are mounted up and look soooo good with the swingarm spools. Tomorrow I am installing the Woodcraft engine cover and LED tailight. I will have pics then.....

Well. I put the motoslider frame sliders and swingarm spools on, as well as the Woodcraft clutch cover. LED taillight and Hotbodies Undertail will go on after the svraceshop shock goes on

I have some Hella dual cat eyes on their way. Can't wait to see again!!!

Also, I am thinking about switching out the 120/60 for a 120/70 to compensate for the lower SRAD front end, plus I might need it when I try out the 100mm dogbones. The svraceshop dogbones and rear shock should be here this week.... :)

The thing really looks great.

I think I am going to have to put a strip on my bike now!

Keep the updates coming!

heres my advice: take some #0000 steel wool, and some metal polish and clean up those exhaust pipes. itll take 40minutes but theyll look brand new.

the paint was done by the previous owner. I don't mind the strip. I wouldn't have put it on myself, hell I would have painted it flat black. I like it and it looks good, so it will stay.

The SV gauges will be here this week and I can install them with the digikey sensor and rare earth magents.
I am also going to call the boys at svraceshop and ask their opinion on the 120/60 vs 120/70 with an SRAD front end.

Keep you all posted....

I am thinking about changing the color. Maybe keep the frame/ swingarm black and paint everything else flat gray with some gold anodizing. I am still undecided,....

it was just a thought. I am going to wait awhile before I change colors, if I even do. I would love to do an all white bike with the black frame. I don't think it would happen, but it would look nice.
