    2004 GSX-R 600. Been kept well. Nothing too special that's been added (digital gear indicator, frame sliders, strator covers, shorty levers, aftermarket rear-sets, steel-braided lines, brand-new Dunlop Q3's).

    Winterized and battery tended, now it's the wait.

    Ordered another set of fairings (armourbodies) as well as a blank / primed tank cover. Will be looking forward to painting them.

    Another thing as well (and ironically you guys were just talking about it) is that it has GP shifting setup. Hopefully just changing around the link will revert it back to normal.

    Other than new fairings (get rid of the plastic ones on it right now), I don't think I'll add anything else until I'm advanced enough for a suspension upgrade. But the focus is simply GETTING to the track! Will need to buy a hitch, trailer, tire warmers before the spring/summer starts.

    Who knew this hobby would be so expensive? Ha!
    Woo-hoo! Congrats on the bike! I'm sure you'll like the Q3's, though I'm not sure if they need tire warmers. I just use the big glowing ball in the sky as mine
    Not sure if you saw the post a while back, but hotbodies has bodywork for 50% off right now. I also got a hitch on my car and am considering trying out GP shift. Are there any downsides to running GP shift on the street? Spring cant come soon enough!

    Also they have bodywork which wont need painting which is nice, a set for the R6 cost me $400USD (+60 in shipping to Niagara falls, NY)

    Hey! Do you still plan on setting up a spray-booth in January / February?

    I've got to paint my fairings. Going to be getting a paint gun + air compressor then all the materials come January / February.

    On a side note, I'll be setting up a spray booth, probably in January/February some time, so if any of you have any fairings or parts that you want to paint let me know. We've got airlines running through the building so if you're more high-tech than rattle can, we can accommodate that.
    It won't be a permanent thing, I'll only have it set up for a month or so - we will need the space in the warehouse again in the Spring. Also, this would be an after hours or weekend thing, not during regular business hours.

    Also, came across these pump siphons....anyone want one?

    Yep, still planning on getting that set up in mid-January and it will be coming down at the end of February.
    The booth will have airlines running to it and we've got 4-5 paint guns. I haven't tested them so I don't know if or how well they work yet...
    I'll put post something here when it's up and running.
