Build 42 Evaluation Advice
It's been quite a while since I've posted, so I'm not sure if any of the "old gang" is around to remember this S1K build...
The last couple of years have been so busy that I just haven't been riding much so I'm thinking of selling her and wanted to get some thoughts on an appropriate price. There are so many customizations that it's a bit hard to compare to another SC so I'm a bit unsure of what to ask for it.
The build is pretty well documented on this forum (do a search for me - there's a lot...) but here are a couple key bits:
tank Caswell coated & fuel pump fixed
Gixxer front end - (forks, breaks, vast improvement)
Custom exhaust (modified Keihan Conti SST cones w/polished SST headers)
custom fairing mount (bolt-on aluminum frame)
GT1K tank & custom mono seat to fit it (more comfortable w/shorter reach)
ST4 risers (all-day ride comfort)
additional custom 2-up seat (all leather, super comfortable)
pillion pegs installed, optional mono rearsets also included
2 shocks: one for sprung for 2-up, one set up for mono
2 custom luggage rack systems (one for a top bag, the other a customized Ventura setup for 3-piece)
wired with power outlet for heated gear & grips
Airbox removed, pod filters, engine mapped with Power Commander for intake/exhaust mods
Couple of pics attached, thanks in advance for any input.
'06 S1K - with a few mods...
