Thanks for this opportunity to show off my bike. I see a few new ones yet again!

It's an '01 F4i.

I purchased this with just 1100 miles this past May, 2012! One owner and a lady that was afraid of it. I picked it up this past year. It was bone stock when I got it and had the original tires on it too.

You can see more detailed pics in my gallery I created. More to come as I add more to the bike.

Not your average exhaust. It's an RS 3 exhaust but I cut the mid pipe off and had my buddy do a custom v-band stainless mid pipe with a wide band bung for my future mods. Bottle and some misc items are on my list.

Another pic of the custom v-band with tig welding.

New gauge with A&N fittings and new sheathing for the wiring.

A Powerlet for my bike. Works awesome! I just installed this using mil spec connectors since I didn't like how the harness came.

Pic to show the tig welding and the wide band bung once I get my new wide band down the road.

Mods to date are:

. lowered
. fender eliminator kit (all ARP hardware since the kit came with IMPERIAL BOLTS ON A METRIC BIKE!)
. CNC Pazzo adjustable levers
. Pilot pure tires (claimed to be lighter)
. ARP throughout
. Fuel pressure gauge with A&N fittings (drill and tapped fuel rail)
. PowerLet power source with Mil spec connectors and harness
. Yoshi RS3 with custom mid pipe with V band and wide band bung
. Go-Pro mounted to the side of the bike
. Frame sliders
. K&N filter

Waiting to tune

. Power Commander not yet installed
. Dyno tune bottle kit not yet installed
. Dyno jet quick shifter
. Puig double bubble not seen in pic cause they sent wrong one!

Default 1992 F2 swap to 2004-05 CBR1000RR Repsol

My bike is an old 1992 Honda CBR 600 F2 with over 50k miles LOL. I got tired of the ugly cyclops headlight and nasty looking dual seat. So stripped the bike naked and bought a used 1000RR full kit off of eBay.

Nothing was cut or permanently modified to the original frame. I can convert back to the F2 quickly. I've seen people do 600RR/F4i swaps, but never a 1000RR full conversion. So I decided to turn my F2 into my dream bike that I couldn't afford...being a full time college student.

I call this bike the "Poor Man's Repsol" hahahahaha Mechanically, everything is stock. Rides like an outdated 600, but gets the attention of a 1000RR Repsol.

Mods: Chopped exhaust/straight pipe, Aftermarket levers, Koso aftermarket digital gauge, 1000RR fairing kit, chicken strip mod.

Here's a video I recently took.

Does this header have a collector? If so, pics. I have a custom made header for my Supra. (Burns makes a collector and supplied the material for my bud to make)

It isn't a collector as such but cool set up. A slip joint is pretty common and clean way to go. I assume you have a wide band and a custom tune for this? I have many parts ready to install on mine. As soon as I get a chance!
