I'm doing the Blue or White guages. Not sending them away to get done but doing them myself. Its only like $6 for the LED's. And debating on Streetglow LED's. Other then that the boring usual Brakes and new tires.

I found a very detailed walk-thru on how to do it, and it didn't seem to bad. But then again lots of stuff looks easy on paper.

Yeah I will probably be trolling on rr.net but no worries I will still be on this forum. This is the best CBR forum by far and I still need to give you crap until you finish that thing.

1.Paint new tail and upper.
2. Recover passenger seat to black.
3. Under tail
4. New slip on.
5. powder coat wheels.
6. New graphics on the side fairings.


My main plan is to get the bike in tip top shape. I don't know what maintenance schedules are like for this bike but I have 22,000 miles on her and I am assuming that nothing but oil changes was done to her. So I need to know what to have done besides this.

1. air filter
2. spark plugs
3. oil change(wait till spring)
4. chain lube.

Any help would be great.

I am also trying to fix a water pump cover leak. If it doesn't work I am replacing the water pump.

How about you just put your god damn bike back together?!?

But I plan on rebuilding mine. Still need to get a hold of my subframe, but I'm in contact with a guy, hopefully he'll still have it.

Mine won't be systems go until summer sometime.
