Let the Winter modding begin!

Got off of work Sunday morning and started the first series of mods on my 99 Legend. New L.E.D. turn signals up front and new flush mount l.e.d.s. on the new fender eliminator from Jaguartvr. Also pulled off the passenger foot pegs. Next up is a 19 tooth front sprocket, cleaning and lining the gas tank and a thorough carb cleaning.

That looks better! I presume you found it much easier to fit.

If anyone's interested I have also just finished a smoth version with a led strip comb rear light?brake light and LED strip indicators.
I've also modified the stainless steel crash bars so that they can also be supplied with highway pegs.
It's too cold and wet to go riding so I may as well amuse myself in the garage, keeps me out of the clutches of the other half.

If you click on my avatar and have a look in my album you will find a picture of the fender eliminator from the rear fitted with micro LED indicators.

Random,

"Slick as a minnow's d&%k". Really looks good with those finely crafted parts from across the big pond.

Thanks gbc, couldn't have done it without Jaguartvr's great parts and awesome service. I'm currently fitting a 96 ZX6 showa shock from ebay that should only need two washers for shims on the lower bolt for a perfect fit. I also have a slim ballast HID conversion kit on its way and a motografix tripple tank protector as well. I love it when christmas comes early
