Back on two wheels

Received the necessary parts yesterday, finally. Took a break from studying and put the forks back on the bike. The difference is instantly noticeable: It's so much smoother with the new bearings. Also raised the back of the fairing a bit. On one hand it looks better, it's nicely in line with the bottom of the tank. On the other hand: I can only do this by putting the fairing on top of the fairing frame, that'll be visible.  I can live with that, but worse is that I'll have to raise the clip ons even further up than on this photo. I'm not so sure I can live with that. It'll lessen the 'sportiness' of the bike and I don't think it'll look very good.

  1. I think I will. I just want those clip-ons lower.

  2. If you do have to raise the bars a little, you could also try to raise the rear a bit to compensate and keep that sporty look. Tough choice here as it will change the bike's overall balance.
    You could also grind the fairing a little to keep the clip ons the lowest possible.
    Just my 2 cents.
    Keep the great work up !

  3. Keep the fairing. Lower it. Slam the front and rear suspension. And use the small seat in the earlier pictures.

  4. i agree with chalopy!
    the fairing is great but it would look better if you would chop it a bit.

  5. I agree that would be best, but it's impossible. The fender/wheel will hit it going over bumps and I can't cut out a section at the bottom cause the headlight is already all the way at the bottom in the middle. So impossible unfortunately.
