I think I got You Guys on this one!!

And No,I'm not typing all My shit Down Right now!

But,I've been working on This 86' since 92'...and It's still not Done!!!!

I think I might just have the nicest paint job on the bike with Most Mods!!

The sad Thing Is I just started Building A Harley,so who knows now!!!!!!!!

Mr.Gixxer also has a very nice paint job coming also!
(I think Mr.Gixxer would beat us all if It came to the most Free Mods!!!!!

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Hey! there *are* oldskool bikes that came OEM with 17" wheels... just no "straight spokes". The list of mods on my ride is *severly* tame by the standards of *this* crew... but when I bought the thing, the way I justified it was "If I get a big bike (1100) then I won't be spending time and money playing around with performance upgrades"... of course, that was *before* the pipe and jet kit and ignition advance... and *now* I'm drooling over the +1mm 11.5:1 pistons and 41mm Keihin FCR's... Ya'all are a *bad* influence! Absolutely incorrigable!

...incorrage me, incorrage me!

FastCat you know that +1mm isn't going to do it for you, come on 1186
bigger is better

For encouragement, one of the first things I would to to your bike bike is pull off the stock body work, it looks cherry, dial up SharkSkinz and get a set og race body work and cut out your lights, have it piated stock colors, it looks good, is lighter and saves the stock stuf if you ever want to sell the bike., The I would start fiddling with the suspension before I went with the bigbore. imho
course what do I know look what I have done to my bike

Who needs all that HalTech EMS, Mitsubishi Turbo nonsense anyway!

I sure do miss the squid-farm though... has anyone ever *actually* put an F-16 engine in a gixxer?
