    the purple is leaving, im taking all the stickers off...
    as you can see from the pic, i just got the purple graphics off of the tail sections and that took over an hour..
    so i still have all the other graphics to remove

    in a day or two im ordering 2 new BT-014's

    ordering a clear or smoked windscreen (mine is painted black and looks like ass)

    im going to polish the lip of the wheels, and paint the inside a bronze color then clearcoat it

    i also got a solo seat cowl to cover the rear seat

    im going to pick either a metallic blue, or a copper metallic (like on the SV1000 )

    and paint the bike that color.. with probably no decals

    i guess i'll have to put her down for about a month total because then im going to have the forks serviced and fix the valve cover that is leaking

    the main reason im doing this is because it has to last me for 2 years and i dont want a purple bike..i say 2 years because i cant afford insurance on a newer bike until im 25 :(, so i might as well make the fizzer MINE

    any tips, advice or opinions please feel free to share:big grin:

    im going with

    150/60/18

    110/70/17

    thats the same size front im using now, and almost 2 sizes larger in the rear..a 160 will fit the rear, but you have to shim out some stuff in the back..the guys at fzrarchives say its not worth it...^ is the best tire combo

    dont bother with wider tyres. they only slow your turn-in. only if you were planning to produce significantly more power would the cornering traction outweigh the downside of turn-in.

    forget the seat cowl... you dont need the extra weight on that classic :rofl:
