Yea last time i goto him but thats what i get for tryin to get best deal for the job should of gone with this other guy ..o well ..

anyhow here's a teaser of half since i have to wait for the tire to come in for the front . I'm sure it will look more uniform when the front it mounted .lol BTW it started to rain as i was working. I changed my front sprocket -1 i didnt have impact so i took off my sprocket cover rode the bike across the street to BELLE TIRE . I used their impact gun and 36 mm socket <Now i owe them a lunch> Rode back put it up on this $20 stand i got off CL and changed it . Then Spent and hour or 2 trying to mount the new rear wheel wouldn't go in for life of me damn brake hanger . Plus i think the new wheel is wider by like 2-3 mm .. Finally got it in also the New Rear wheels cush and sprocket are 45 teeth my stock was 43 so now i got a oem -1 +2 gearing setup along with supposedly 8lbs lighter wheels .. Driving it home it stopped raining and OMG on the freeway its a torque monSTER .. probably pull 4th gear wheelies even though i wouldnt dare try .. One thing is that it felt like im doing 80 but says 100 so i need a speedo healer also . $100 bucks more to suck out of me ..Cant wait till that new Pilot power front comes in hopefully this puppy rides sooo smooth.. could care less to make it faster ..

Thanks bro .. kinda pissed at my self .. shoulda let the dealer do it but i didnt want to pay them $84 dollars and thats not changing out my front sprocket ..Ended up putting a 1 inch gash on the wheels finish <damn Brake Arm> but not really noticable unless ur scoping out the rim for any marks .lol .. but yea cant wait till that front comes in .. Thank god i didnt pre order the gold rearsets and levers that was suppose to complete the theme i was going for and compliment the wheels .. but all the handle bars and rearsets come in anodzied finish so the gold looks like of like burnt gold .. I would get these coated again but im not going to hassle to take off the bearings and tires just to order new bearings .. well see when the front is mounted . if i dont like them ill spray can them black .. I just like how the rim looks so wide in a lighter color .anyhow

thanks .... the tires en route from ohio to detroit ups ground <ugh> i prefer usps priority . but i'll live with it .. I'm using a r6 front wheel .. I'm going to have to put spacer's either between the caliper bolt's or the rotor's . Still can't decide ..lolol
I'm thinking it's better todo it on the calipers since there are 5 bolts and might hold up better as to the 2 bolts for the calipers .. ?????? who knows I always take the easy route so i just might end up going wit the calipers for spacing lol

i would go with the calipers it would be easier to do. you would have to have machined spacers for the rotors cause if there off on the rotors it wouldent run straigtht
ones life is the way it is only because you allow it make it happen.

Well i finally broke down and bought a front stand for the bike .. It mounts under the tree stem ..
Man its been a couple weeks in the waiting but finally .. I forgot my usb cable at work so just come crappy BB storm 3,2 mp pics .. Well here she its with her new front shoe and brand new pilot power 2ct tire ..and a little bit more uniform ... I must say it feels wierd I dont know if the wheel being lighter makes a differnce or not or if its the brand new front tire but its like i have to get used to the bike again .. just when i was feeling comfortable .. anyhow here she is with her Gold wheels ..
I'm still debating if i should de-badge the bike or not .. Might get sick of the wheels color and go a differnt route come winter who knows .. enjoy the new look and tell me if ya like it or not .. If ya dont , I dont care lololol its growing on me so Ha ...

this pic came out better and still has the mirrors on ..

dont look too much off in the wheel dept though

HUH????lolol

You already know how I feel about those wheels. Looks a lot better to me.
