    Why the rebuild? I wouldn't give up that candy red for anything... Not bad looking though. Not my taste, but It looks like it was wrapped nicely.

    I would have to see it in the light of day, and besides it's not what we like; But what makes you happy. I did the Braided steel lines, over the winter and flushed the systems. Also made a new bracket to secure the twin lines, as the old, single-to- two bracket and bolt, was no longer functional. That's a lot of stress on the banjo bolt now that it's twice as long, relying on the same number or threads (in aluminum) to secure. A leak, not good...AJ

    the candy red paint is underneath un harmed, so when im sick of the wraps i just pull it off, give it a wash and the stock paint is ready to shine :mrgreen:

    I used Galfer front and rear braided brake lines

    If it's unharmed... I would have invested in some tasteful performance mods, like rearsets, levers, case/stator covers, brake reservoirs, bar end weights, clip-ons, steering damper.

    How much does wrapping a bike cost? Must be in the hundreds?

    it already has a yoshi trc slip on. M4 y pipe. pcv.and a few other parts. rearsets are on the list. but since this is my street bike it will be 80% looks 20% performance. my track bike on the other hand,,,, :devil: is fully loaded and so far ive got about 1200-1300 total in the wraps. including the wraps them selves and labor for install.

    I used GALFER (800 685-6633). Made in USA, the braided steel is covered in Red plastic tubing to match. Very nice kit, the only thing is they didn't address the mounting/securing, to my satisfaction. Easily solved with a new home made bracket. I felt the lines would move too much, the way they recommended securing; Which in my opinion would eventually lead to a leak. PS Lifetime Warranty...AJ

    looks really good and probably better when you get to shoot it with real camera.

    Now a very important advice. STAY AWAY FROM TRACK DAY. All that customization has a high potential of being gone in seconds if you go to trackday.

  19. I think he has a track bike, im trying to get him to go do a trackday, I think a rider is far better off on the track than on the street, if you do a trackday with the intention of crashing then you probably will. I try to do a dozen or so a year and am on 23 I think with no problems,
