my 02SE with my new wheels.
« on: July 29, 2007, 11:24:55 PM »
well,    i wanted to post pics of my bike. 
i'm still trying to get used to the look of the gold wheels. 
the performance gain of the light weight wheels makes everything better for me however.
 :)














Motorhead Performance
-OG ghetto stage 1 turbo kit installed and tuned by motorhead
-spacer to reduce compression
-heavy duty clutch springs
-8lbs of boost
-motorhead undertail

Street and Track
-carrozzeria vstar wheels gold anodized
-18 and 40 tooth jt sprockets
-zzz 112 link chain (its in the shop, i havent installed it yet)

Smithabusa
-gear indicator (green) with shift light (blue)
-busa service manual

Spencer Cycle
-tripple tree
-lowering links
-adjustable kick stand
(sometimes i slam the bike to play with the local squid kids)

ST Machine
-bullet bar ends
-bullet levers
-pig spotters mirrors (only for legality reasons)

hyperpro steering dampner

all the other gold stuff is from my local motorcycle shop

2006 gold forks and gold calipers

altered the "choke" mechanism
(homemade cruise control)

dash switches on the left panel
-toggle switch on left kills all the lighting (stealth mode  :P )
-momentary button on right activates fan for 3 minutes while cruising. 
 if you press the button and turn the key off the bike continues to run with the fan on for 3 minutes.
 (homemade turbo timer)

i made my own integrator for my rear tail lights
(homemade taillight integrator)
 
yes, i get bored easily.

i hope you guys like my bike.
i still have stuff i would like to do.  it never ends i guess.
 :lol:
thanks for looking.

thanks for the comments.
 :)

the turbo was the best performance mod on this bike.
but the lighter wheels, a very close second place in performance mods.
just the way it handles now, its a blast to ride for sure.

some people say that the lighter wheels seem to hurt top end stability (gyro effect of the wheels),
i really havent noticed any problems yet.
one thing i did notice, there is a harsher engagement when going into first gear.
the cush drive of these wheels look like small rubber bushings rather than the nice big pie looking pieces of the stock cush drive.

EXTREMEFUN1300, what does your HyperPro setup look like?

I bought my HyperPro in 04 so maybe the newer ones changed.   (?)

they are made by ProGrip. 
actually they are rally bike grips.  i've had them on every bike i've had.
there superbike grips always felt to "thin" to me.
(personal preference i guess)

here is a link to their site.
