    Re: CBR1100XX 00' 100% Cosmetic makeover... BEFORE pictures.

    Love the German single seat kit. Unfortunately we can't get them here stateside. They won't ship across the pond. Had one come up for sale about 2 years ago and couldn't get it. Bird looks great.
    Route 191 formerly Route 666 Some say that this section of the
    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.

    Re: CBR1100XX 00' 100% Cosmetic makeover... BEFORE pictures.

    Thanks! Amazing story behind seat! Owner lives in Alberta Canada(Had the bike shipped from Alberta to my location here in Quebec) and got a hold of a complete stranger(Biker) in Germany who spoke little english so German dude got a friend who understood english. And asked/begged! If he could buy it and ship it to him here in Canada! He agreed! And the rest is history! Funny... Now you have many choices to choose from but the original German seat is nice! There is one that has mini trunk! Another that has a mini cushion. Another looks like it was developed in a wind tunnel! With XX emblazened on it. ALL solo seats...
    Once cosmetic makeover and upgrades are complete it will look ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! CHEERS!!! And be responsibly crazy!!

    FWIW I would not put smoked lenses on the turn signals - motorists need every clue they can get to know you are turning - there may also be regulations too - if you do an undertail make sure that you lights are not the crappy little ones on most undertail kits - there are some really nice LED strips you could put back there for visibility - anything you can do to brighten up your tail is worth it.

    Thanks Bach. Smoked lens will come with switchback bulb but I hear ya! Should be fine for regulations! And yes undertail has those kool/crappy little light and I'm sure it will be rare that I ride in that config! However with beetle bags installed won't be an issue due to LED strip on bags!

    Re: CBR1100XX 00' 100% Cosmetic makeover... BEFORE pictures.

    Wow, that is going to be some makeover.

    2 things you might want to double check b4 you hit the road:

    front fender may strike the camera if you hit a pothole and radiator grilles look a little restrictive, hard to tell exactly from the pic, but the bird definitely needs max airflow as she tends to run a little hot.

    Front brake master cylinder and footpegs are gorgeous, well done.
    As Fizzy has said watch that front camera :-)

    In a similar vein to fizzy's first comment about the camera, also make sure that the air horn wont strike the front fender at full fork compression. I had that issue - lost a front fender and an air horn in one pothole strike....

    I commend you on your work - that is some amazing attention to detail.
    No good deed goes unpunished!

    Lovinmycbr, It's gonna look awesome bro.

    Thought for you. I have two dual tone airhorns (110dB each) mounted off the headlight mounting bolts inside the nose cowl (one each side of the headlight) .

    No prob re fork compression as not located there. Well protected from the elements and road debris. Loud as a loud thingy of loudness! MoT complaint.

    Just a thought. Soz, no pictures just yet (though soon due to take nose off on another tweak. Will post then).

    Thank you Fizzy! Thought of that and have almost 8" clearance! BUT I'm thinking of moving it up so that it comes in contact with removable plastic plate. Will gain at the most 1/2" BUT could make all the diff! As far as the rad goes yes I feel ya! So I plan on installing fan bypass switch to hopefully fix that potential prob! Thanks again!
