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.

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.

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.
