Update on the newly acquired 599 discussed here...https://www.wristtwisters.com/forum/s...+yellow+hornet
Replaced or repaired all the damaged parts. New engine case covers, right rearset, thermostat cover, brake lever, right bar end, and headlight rim. Rear cowl bodywork repaired and painted, side panels painted, speedo housing still on order.
Added OEM windscreen, Clear Alternatives clear turnsignal and taillight lenses, Motovation frame sliders, cutesy lever wraps, painted rear hugger. Decided the hugger wasn't flattering and removed it, will try and sell on ebay or the 599 forum. Installed black mirrors, shortened rear fender, removed reflectors.
MIVV exhaust still to come, the scratches on the exhaust heat shields are the only evidence of being down. Also need some cool Hornet decals for the rear body, and plan to do some black powercoating this winter.
Lowered front end 15mm, rear shock set on lowest position, seat modified and lowered about 1.5", shortened kickstand 1". G has new Icon SuperDuty2 boots with thick soles, and she's quite comfortable on the bike now.
Here's some pics...
Rear Hugger...too heavy, makes the back of the bike look thick IMO. Oh well, seemed like a good idea
