It seems he replaced the braided steel brake lines with some braided steel brake lines, a master cylinder with a master cylinder, worn out tires, brake rotors and brake pads with new tires, brake rotors and brake pads and only the clutch side lever with a CRG lever. Well, at least he made it loud. That's a plus, right? Except for a couple of items, it could have been an article about maintenace parts.

Woa - tough crowd.

Hey man, the guy loves his bike and is making it his own. It's his project, not yours.

I don't know about you, but I learn a little bit every time I read about what someone's done to their bike.

It's a black speedie, with a little bit of this and a little bit of that. What's not to like?

It appeared many of the changes to the bike resulted in either better performance or less weight (read better performance). I like those types of modifications. Overall, it's a nice looking bike.

I have all of the same mods except I have the Arrow slipons, CRG's clutch and brake and a German Mohr undertail tiddy, does this mean I now own a streetfighter.

Nothing to<not> like, but it's really just a collection of bolt-ons, as tyrebyter said. What I don't get is spending over 4K to make the bike more trackworthy, as he mentions several times, and not doing the suspension. I kind of laughed when he said "now that the major modifications are done..." because he didn't do ANYTHING major.

Oh well, his bike, his choices, and at least it's not some hideous custom....

Spot on, This has been the main gripe from a lot of bike testers and owners SUSPENSION!! Yet this bloke chooses to ignore it completely... Track time as well.......Strange. Nice bike though.

Hi :) Just interested which daytona Instruments you fitted.... I just bought a tricked out 2004, with MMB rev and Speedos 48mm in a combined CNC holder. Has a Motogadget Breakout box.... But the Instruments are c*rap. I am looking at replacing them... Also checked the Daytonas Love your feedback :) Have a great day

Hi guys...I guess the fundamental problem is that we are not starting with a two hundred dollar honda from the wreckers, we cant mess it up with the grinder and then dump it
