    It started life as an 03 40th Anniversary edition... After my wreck last year I put a full body kit on it from Extreme. I love the color actually. It is a fair bit more orange than the stock Burning copper was. My LED Shop lights dont really light it up like when its in the sun; then it really pops. Here is a pic with a few more printed parts I have been working/experimenting on. The Windshield Spoiler was all a monolithic print, with the forward pivot incorporated and the rear ones are slotted to allow ~25 degrees of angle change. Still a work in progress.

    I definitely dig the color. When I had my charcoal/silver 03, I really wanted the 40th anniversary because of the color. I see a couple more 3D items you've printed, you've been busy for sure!

    Been a few months since I posted the above. I have since uploaded several of my prints to Thingiverse. So anyone with a printer can make them. Ive made tons of other parts since, just no time to develop them and get em posted. Did a 300 mile ride over the North Cascades pass yesterday and all of my parts worked as planned so pretty happy so far.

    Uploaded this to my Thingiverse account today. Front Brake Helper/Holder. Locks the front brake for maintenance, bleeding etc. Work perfect right out of the gate. Almost never happens!:bounce:

    Kind of bored this weekend so I decided to model up and print a few things I have been wanting for a while.
    First was a set of Wheel alignment cones sort of like the Rhinomoto setup but these are just for use with a tape measure. Stick one in the Swingarm and one in the rear axle and lets you measure side to side pretty precisely. I put slots in them for a tape measure tip so it is a one handed deal once the cones are snugged up. When I get time I will print the bar assy also but on my busa my mufflers are a bit of an obstacle so you would need some longer 1/4-20 all-thread (mine are ~ 18inches each right now) to reach around them. As is, my 6 foot tape measure fits perfectly inboard of the muffler. Just make all of the slots plumb and measure away! I can see why the Rhinomoto style one uses smooth bar stock (no need to thread a nut 8 inches onto it!) as opposed to All-thread, but once you get one set you only have to unthread the short side to remove. Maybe I will make a set for the bar stock later!

    The second part I wanted was a slider/foot for my Pitbull rear stand. I hate scratching the hell out of my stand on my concrete floor so I modeled up a small snap on foot that just slips right onto the stand and self levels once the stand is on the floor. I dont know how I went so long without a 3D printer!
