Also this weekend I put around 340 miles on it. Ran good. It sputters at lower rpm from a load in higher gears.

Brakes require ALOT of lever. I guess they aren't bad, but you have to squeeze the living shit out of it to make it stop. I am just used to having super awesome ZX14 brakes I guess. So I ll be doing something about that probably.

Riding on the highway, very uncomfortable. I forgot the pains of the stock seat. I have to constantly shift my weight around on it. My girl got on it and we went for a quick 30 min ride and she said its different, not as comfortable as the 14. Very rough riding and herky jerky. She liked it because its quiet LOL! I thought its going to be loud soon. But now I am starting to rethink that. She said its such a small bike. I thought it really does feel small.

Bottom line, I think this will most likely be an around town bike. Something you don't get on the highway and don't ride far. My back is already hurting lol.

Well I dug up a chrome drag bar. Waiting on a double d spring, and bar end mirrors as my next installment.

Hopefully I can finger out the front brake lever wire problem soon.

Have a small oil leak also, need to fix that as well.

Looks like your up to a lot. I would suggest get a better seat, and if she plans on riding with you get a sissy bar. I put highway pegs on my engine guards last year made it better for road trips. More options of moving around to get comfortable.. plus the breeze up the pants helps...I paid and got a muscle seat last year, with the improved rear for my wife( who will not ride on it...) lol oh well...I also put UFO 4-1 on make is a little louder, well I don't notice it killing my ears with the megaphone vs. the drag slash cut.. Even with earplugs it hurt on longer rides... Getting a better seat is a must. I regret not doing it years ago...

I can't remember what seat I had on my 02. I ll see if I can find some pictures.

I am thinking I cut my seat down and add some memory type foam like Dman did and maybe that will help. I dont remember the seat being so bad, but then again, my zx14 seat is so awesome compared to this. But it is what it is I guess.

The exhaust, I have a feeling I am going to put the Voodoo slash cuts on it and then maybe make a set of cans myself if I find time.

Crash guards with pegs I planned on making a new style on my last Vmax, never got around to it. But I do need that extra option if I am going to have my girl ride on the bike, because 90% of the time I m on the back pegs leaning forward.

Same mirrors and bar I used last time, but this time chrome bar instead of black.

Plus I have to reroute the hydraulic lines.

My son really wants this one. So I am not sure how much farther I will take it. But I am thinking exhaust system and busa brakes up front and then let him do whatever he wants.

Looks sharp, though I personally would have mounted the bar end mirrors in an upward position, but thats just a personal preference matter.

I had those same mirrors on a broomstick bar, lol. Love the view, hated that they started moving at 120 mph, lol.
