Appreciate the comments guys
I’m excited to ride it and even more excited to give it away
Rearsets will be installed soon along with the rear brake line and fuel lines
I had to get fancy with the shift linkage using some spares I had from my racing parts bin and spare zx9 parts
This bike will be (can only be) set up gp shift with the set up I’m running in order to clear the side stand
I’m used to it as all my bikes are this way but hopefully dad can learn it quickly haha
Will post more photos soon
I also opted to run a carbon fiber inner rear fender and I couldn’t be happier with the fit and finish
Nearly there now, hoping to be riding by Friday

Just off top of my head.... bored to 1075, Wiseco pistons, aftermarket cams and built top end, built transmission, full rebuild from bottom up. I’m sure there’s more and I have a list somewhere but it was torn down to nothing and put back together with all new top shelf parts. She’s going to be a screamer.
