I have decided to use protaper yamaha raptor bars.
They are a little taller, wider, and have more pull back.
My current super bike bars are 3" tall with a 3" pull back. I feel like I am riding with my arms fully extended and have trouble looking around.

Thanks Mark!

I like orange. I am thinking about a silver paintjob with orange stripes.

So now I'm thinking about a chrome front fender. I looked at the one at Klasmos, It's ok I guess. $246 and I'm not in love with it. It does not even cover much, mounting it to the usd forks may look bad in the end. I guess a modified ninja fender could work. B) I want chrome!!!!!B) :side: The zx9 fender looks like a birds beak.

Sweet bike! I noticed that when comparing this bike to your bike the tank sits flatter on this bike. Do you have any plans to modify how your tank sits? It seems that your tank sits higher in the front. Kinda like the difference between a reg kz and a ltd. I'd like to have my tank sit flatter like the one in the pic. Then again... Maybe it's my eyes..:laugh:

it is easy to drop the tank down just cut of the mounts and drop them down 1/2 or 3/4 of an inch and remount them. idid that on my little drag bike.
