Thanks man.... The pipes are actually Scorpions, they were on the bike when I bought it but were low-mounts. I figured out during some tinkering that if you remove the pass footpeg assemblies and rotated the slips, they would still seal and work in that position. The pic tells all lol...

I had a bunch of money sunk into mine, between the bodywork and upgrades, but when it still needed a total front fork rebuild and started showing signs of clutch problems and the notorious CCT clatter, I called it quits and traded her in.

Just glad to see someone else modding a S'hawk! Wicked ride yourself, man. I've got a few random bits and pieces of mine still laying around the garage, so feel free to shoot me a PM if you happen to need any random parts...I don't have a lot left, but you never know.

that front end looks awesome, i really like what you did there, and it looks clean.

My plans: Ninja 250->Ninja 650->CBR600RR or a Gixxer 750 or 600(Modded) or Busa->Your Mom->Velociraptor(Living)->TRex->Ice Cream Truck->Space Shuttle->?????->RICH.

Looks sick, the bottom of the fairing looks damn close to the wheel though, or its just the angle of the pic

it is a bit close but not too close does not seem to hit it took me a bit to make the RC51 skins to fit I had to cut the rear portion off and that the front seemed to be the only close call
