Default It's Over Haulin' Time

alright so i have a 1994 cbr 600 f2, and i thank for the people who helped me with my overheating problem. I ended up just wiring the fan so i kicks on when the bike is turned on and i havent had any problems since. The reason why i'm writing this thread is i'm wanting to do a winter project with my f2 and pretty much strip it down and get the frame powder coated with the rims and stuff. But i do have a list of stuff i'm buying so i can replace/fix all the minor things. I'm gonna warn you i guarantee any questions i have may be no brainers to you guys but this is my first real riding season and i've never really stripped a bike down before so i apologize for the noobness now. and if you think theres something else i should go ahead and replace while its all taken apart feel free to let me know any help is appreciated. Also if you know a website with better deals or better quality items please let me know like i said i'm new to all this.

Some of the things I would change is 1) those grips. They looks like a ***** IMHO. 2) Don't go with that lift. They aren't good for sport bikes. The exhaust that runs underneath our bikes and the fairings wraps underneath as well. I would go with a stand over a lift. 3) I wouldn't go with those windscreen bolts. I don't think they would match the fairing set you want to go with and I think they are way over priced.

As for the chain I am certain that the width is 530 and almost positive the links is 108. I looked in the service manual it sucks for the older bikes but from the research I have done it looks like 108 and 530 is stock.

If I saw someone riding with those grips I would most certainly post a pic on this forum and rag on them.

haha yeah not to mention they are over priced if i take the lift and those grips off that brings my price down to about 1000 and i wasnt gonna get those bolts blue those were just the first ones i found i think they said i had options i'll probably go with black. at first the grips looked cool but when i started thinking about it i really dont wanna spent that much on grips not to mention i dont know how well i would be able to grip them with sweaty hands. its always hot in kansas lol but does anyone have any other ideas i should do while it will be taken apart i know those are all the main things

Since the chain doesn't appear to be brand name, you can get a blue o-ring chain for like $50 on ebay.
I'm not a big fan of aluminum sprockets, but different strokes as they say. I'd probably go with some JT steels and an RK X-ring for less money. Won't be blue, but it'll last well.
I would make sure to change your front sprocket, too. I wouldn't install a new chain and new rear without swapping the front. They're cheap enough.
For grips... if you want blue, you can get pro-grip gels in blue. Around $15 and they look and feel good.
I would also skip the lift and get a decent set of stands.

It doesn't really matter, but I can move this thread to the F2 section if you like.

^^ That sucks your fairing broke off. My buddy was having the same issues with his F2. He ended up with a lot of zip ties everywhere. lol..

I don't know of any websites that would have all the stuff you want for cheaper. Ebay has some good prices on stuff like what you linked, tho. I think the same fairing kit is like $520 shipped from overseas. Hit or miss on the china fairing kits, tho, from what I've seen.

I know it's nice to get everything at the same place, but I always find that the stuff I really want is in 20 different places. If you're just gonna get off brand, I say ebay and save a ton of cash from the site you linked. Ebay has the same stuff and vendors like to compete and make the prices better.
