Very nice progression Danep.. I'm dig'n the new bits

For the love of god, put on some cheapo race fiberglass if you take her on the track though. Would hate to see that carbon dinged up in case of an Ooops moment.

Thanks Guys. Ya, I think I will snatch up some track fairings, as far as the Carbon Fiber goes, I have my headlight Covers shipping out Monday, then I will get the Black Lowers in Carbon Fiber, then call it a day. I am wanting a Saddleman Seat, and some ASV Levers. So those will be coming soon.

That cf looks pretty, but how about fixing your bent subframe? Just an idea.

Well, thats the problem, its not the subframe thats bent... that subframe was straight when I put it on.... I bought it from a member on here... but I dont know what else it could be (it quite apparently looks like its tweaked).

Have you had the frame checked to see if it's straight It may be best to check that before dumping more $ into the bike.

How would I go about getting the Frame Checked?

Take it down to EDR, they will know in short order. Oh, and I have no affiliation with them. I just used them after a get off and I was very impressed with their thoroughness.

Take off whatever you need to and start with subframe mounting points. A tape measure and a rear stand will get you started. You should be able to see if the mounting points are tweaked, if nothing jumps out start measuring.

A new frame will set you back about $920+shipping+labor. Not bad at all.

Honestly it almost looks like the swingarm, or swingarm mounts are bent...

Either that or someone sold you a bent sub-frame.

Tweaked swingarm will - more than likely - make the bike handle like shit. Take it out, if you have not, and see how it behaves.

Normally I'd say "YES". But if you want an exact assessment on frame straightness, GP Suspension is the way to go. Here's why:

Thanks Guys, I will look into the GP Suspension Chassis Setup, I was very pleased with them when they setup my suspension, wouldn't mind giving them my business again.

And Yes, I have had it out and probably put another 700-1k miles on it since it has been back together, however, i have not really RIDDEN it since, mainly commuting. Thanks for everyones help
