Hi, All-

Thought I'd post up some pics of my Busa and some of the mods I've done to it. I still have a few minor things to do, but I guess it is done enough to call it 'complete'. Aside from what's in the pics, I also added/did:

* Remote LED kit
* Stashed an EZPass transponder
* Nav (I ran wiring for it, just haven't fabbed the mount yet - i had a nice one-off I made for my last bike (Gsxr1000).
* Oxford Heated Grips - I ride any time of year, and take trips on my bike...
* Kickstand mod
* Hump mod
* Few other things I'm sure I can't remember offhand.....

Still to do:
* Finish Nav mount fabrication
* Speedohealer
* Replace the chrome lowering triple for a black one (swap, anyone?)
* Decide on some levers


(Thanks again to Rooster for the fitment/grind assistance on my other 240 thread, and GixerHP for taking the time to assist with my clutch push rod dilemma...)


Ok, off to the pic whoring.... :beerchug:

Starting the project - This is my 'bike stand' - I always hang my bikes from the garage door supports- super fast and easy and stays out the way!:

Great job!

Where did you stash the ezpass?
Do you have the large or small ezpass?
Have you went through a toll booth with it stashed yet?

I ask because I'm about to do the same thing.

@mlsduke - thanks!

@stangman - Its stashed inside the nose plastics - I may move it tho, just because I like to be able to remove it easily if i want. "THEY" say it should be on clear glass or whatever, but that damn thing will read thru damn near anything. Plastic is no problem. Just make sure the scanning surface is facing forward/up, and unobstructed by metal, you should be fine. I have the smaller transponder on my bike, and keep the larger one in the car.

I know someone who stashed her ezpass under the seat of her car to avoid the booth reading it and it still picked it up, every toll. That's a story for over a drink tho lol

If you're uncomfortable with your location, go thru the ezpass/cash lane first time just in case lol.

Looks great!!!! saved yourself some serious money putting in the wrench time. Labor rates can be rediculous.

Very nice job!

I have a question: What did you use to grind your frame down that smooth?
