That's Harris fairing stay. It comes with Harris damper mounting kit. My Ohlins damper has 20 settings, ever heard of that? Don't they usually come with 16 settings?

The funniest part of all was removing those bungee hooks. I bought a Dremmel tool for £69 for that purpose but the area around exhaust was too congested. I just grabbed them one by one with pliers and turned them up, down, up down, till they came off. They left the least amount of residue on subframe and I ground and filed it away with the Dremmel. My wife made fun of me for spending all that money for something that could be done, simply, with pliers

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Cool...looks good..whole bike is very nice for that matter. LOL on your hook removal. That's the same way I removed mine and it was right after buying a dremel, too. Just didn't have the right bit for that job and the pliers did wonders!

That triple cover is the only thing 'extra' that came with this bike when I bought it last year. It looks a bit tarty but I like it. i don't know where you could buy one from, maybe others can help.

Nice to hear from you Dan, I'll look for the stuff you've mentioned. i think you can pick all the plastics for £200-250 (inc. fuel tank). Will go to PDQ on 9th Oct. to dyno test the bike, will ask them as well if some one is putting his bike on track and getting rid of the original plastics/tank. Since all these things are interchangeable between 600 and 750, you should be able to find them cheap. thanx for the compliment, the bike looks good indeeed. Yeah I've got a whole collection of bangers, might get rid of them all and get a decent 4x4 after Christmas. local M/C Shitty are selling a Gix 1000 K1 for £6999 (new unregistered) and God knows I am tempted. Yes I am tempted indeed. i'll wait till they drop the price further down when K3 is released. Good luck with your bike.

Yeah I know my bike needs cleaning. That scorched swinger is a result of my changing bolt ons on almost weekly basis. I am settled with this system now. I ahve three bolt ons in my attic, might sell them when i come round to it. Well I just popped outside and cleaned the poor thing while i was writing this message. Gives me an excuse to post some more pix

And I might get £150-200 for each of my cars as well
Looking at the pictures, I just realised that some wanker stole my anodised red tyre valve covers
this is the second time it's happened. The feeling that someone has been mucking around with your bike is enough to kill you with worry, anger and sorrow
the bastards. Where is that baseball bat I promised to buy last Sunday. i am going out to buy it NOW. If I find the bastard, then it will be
