Out of curiosity, what other mods have you done to your bike?
well I did changed al the bolts from the frame and the engine for titanium, spindels, axels, bolt for the foodpegs etc ect. every skrew bolt or whatever is from titanium grade 5...carbon wheels, ceramic rotors, suspension swap for ya 535 ohlins, titanium spring for the ohlins shock(costume made) in the front nix 30 ohlins inside.
Brembo master clutch and Brembo master brake cylinder, with upgraded the brakes Brembo gp4rx and 310mm carbon rotors.
Brake lines from fren tubo carbon
Al the plastic parts are swapped with carbon, tank was a winter projekt last year, worked out well for the first Time.
All the small carbon parts on the bike are homemade.
Undertray is from carbon to (difficult to see) and made!
there's nothing more left I think馃槀

fred1962 seems to have a most excellent project bike with some very cool upgrades.
This would have been a perfect bike for the "builds" section and following along each step would have been major entertainment.

Is the tank actually made of carbon? I assumed it was a wrap but the more I look at it I鈥檓 not sure
No wrap, it's really carbon and fred did it on his own. Many months ago fred came on here and said he wanted to make a carbon tank and did we have any advice or helpful tips so the first thing I thought was sure, I wanna built a flying saucer myself. Cynical me figured that was the end of it but awhile later he posted up some photos of his first attempt and it looked good. fred1962 seems to be the real deal and it appears he has very cool 09. Big props to him.
