    RidingMyFZ's build

    Okay so I believe that a bike should never stay stock. And I delayed on posting my build so here's what's been done so far!

    The day I picked her up! Back in November


    First time up at Palomar, installed some $13 chinese mirrors


    Went a while without any upgrades so I decided to get a fender eliminator


    Then I pulled the trigger and got the suspension upgraded. Decided to go with GP 25mm kit and an FJ-09 rear, what a hell of an upgrade, also lowered the front end by 7mm! The 25mm kit totally fixed the front end, totally recommended! Also got some chinese levers. Pretty good for $20!

    You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

    Okay, yesterday was bittersweet. I got some amazing new bars and grips installed but as soon as I bring Kalypso home I drop her out of my truck and break the left side front foot rest. The bars are fine thank God.
    Eeww all stock and high


    Ahh that's much better!

    Okay! A bit of an update! I'm am SO NOT selling Kalypso. In fact I just ordered a set of blue cnc rearsets from ebay and the hurricane fat swallow bars! I'm just gonna ditch the protapers even though the color is nice, they just didn't net me the performance I wanted. Once I'm back home I'll probably sell the protapers and stock rearsets if anyone wants them. I'll also be putting on a full delkevic exhaust, graves smog block off plates, and possibly a PCV! Or a Flash tune, who knows! Can't wait to post update pictures!

    I hope that you take the time to take off the factory sticker on the gas tank. That was the first thing that I did when I got my bike home after purchasing it. Kalypso will love you for doing that. By the way like what your doing to your bike.

    It's actually been on my to do list for quite some time now. I just needed a heat gun is all. And thank you! She's finally taking shape

    Should be getting my bike back from the shop today! Had the rearsets installed only to find the threads weren't finished and had to be tapped, ****ing annoying. But hey, they were cheap. And I'm going to try my hand at installing my Delkevic full system and some smog block off plates as well! Should be done today gents!
