Thanks again everyone. I'm not sure about the exhaust yet I'v been looking at kerker and V&H but I really like the work done by Exhaust craft from over the pond . Also I'v got aways to go I'm hoping to be finished by spring 2012.

Paint is VHT case paint. Dries to a nice satin back finish. I'v used it before and it seems to hold up well. The last couple of cans i bought came form summit racing .

I was poking around on a english z web site and saw a reallt cool pipe from japan. check out nitro racing.probably expensive but way cool. looks like a old school kerker with a nicely bent front header and collector.tucks real tight to frame and sweeps up just a little.probably close to price of race fit?oh yea. nice turbo bike. Is that your last project?

VERY clean! But if that monoshock is going to hang that low I hope you area doesn't have the nasty speed bumps that my area has. Ours are similar to riding over curbs. :woohoo:

The shock isn't going to hang that low. The dog bone, or the three point bracket that bolts to the shock and the swingarm link also has to bolt to the frame. You can see it hanging on the bottom of the shock in some of the pics. Once its mounted properly (somewhere where the original center stand mount was) it won't be quite so dangerous to the local speed bumps :)
