My Bling and Black GT1000 ... Lots of Pics!

Hello everyone,

I think I’m done modifying my GT1000 and am pretty proud of how it ended up.

Although I didn’t take pictures of the build process, I wanted to share with you how it looked when all started and how it looks now. After all, I took most of the mod ideas from this forum.

I asked the seller to take a picture of me on the bike they day I bought it.
The bike was pretty far from home, so I had to put 500 miles on my first ride.

First ride picture:

It looks really different now. After finishing the mods I rode it 100 miles on the back roads. Both handling and the amount of time grinning improved dramatically.

Latest ride picture:

Fist mod to pop out is the new color.
I was fortunate enough to find a brand new original black tank. Some might ask: Why change it? The reason is that although I think the red is nice, the black tank seems smaller (optical illusion). I also think that the logo location is better in this tank model. And lastly: I just like black for the GT1000.

Second obvious mod is the exhaust.
Another forum member sold me a Marving Slip-on set (Thanks Roadie). I polished it and placed it along with a nice set of Corse Dynamics Velocity Stacks and an ECU reflash.

I wanted a more aggressive stance and initially installed a clubman handlebar.

Unfortunately the riding position was not comfortable for me with the clubman and ended up ditching it to replace it with ST3 clip-ons. I also replaced the top triple with one without handlebar holes. Riding position is now very similar to a Sport Tourer

The stock front forks were initially replaced with forks from an S2R monster. But I came to learn in another forum thread that they were not really fully adjustable (really disappointing). So I sourced a nice set of 999 forks and bored both the top triple clamp and the clip-ons.

Wheels were replaced with a polished set of 5 spoke marchesinis. Front brakes are now 4p gold brembos with spiegler black lines. The fender is an OEM shortened carbon fiber one (painted) from an S4RS.

Engine covers were also polished to match the wheels. I did a special job to customize the wet clutch cover.

The bigger oil cooler was taken from an hypermotard 1100 EVO. I also replaced the two valve covers from the horizontal cylinder to bring the oil cooler down to a lower position. IMHO it now fits better in the whole engine-frame setting.

The rear end is now equipped with 1000S adjustable shocks. They are a big improvement compared to the stock ones. They were sourced from another forum member (Thanks to ignited). Rear brake caliper is now a 2p brembo on a monster bracket.

I made the Tail Tidy myself by reducing the OEM mudguard to its minimum possible dimensions. Turn lights are watsens sourced from our forum sponsor JC.

Front turn lights are also watsens from JC. He also provided the Gauge Lowering Bracket and the idea of powdercoating the bracket in black.

Mirrors are stainless steel bar-end Halcyons. They provide great visibility and I like the way they look. They can also be folded-in when the bike is parked.
