Although the RC was fun on the track, the 250 is about 10x as fun. It feels like I'm on a damn bicycle out there. The thread for the 250 can be found here: Free Motorcycle! - PNW Riders

I didn't build this for the track anyways. I have my 250 for that. This is mainly going to be my streetbike.

|BMiller||How'd the bars feel at the track vs. the clipons? I know on my Monster I felt less feedback with the bars.|

Not really an update, but it is all together and rideable. So I did what anybody else would do and took it to the track. I can say that it is like being on a completely different bike. Nowhere to hide at 150mph. But I didn't build this for a trackbike anyways. Was still fun to get back out there.

#1) Again, I'm impressed, Awesome Job so far!..
Hey: By any chance, was I the one who posted up the VIPER when You saw it for the first time? LMAO
#2) FWIW: I actually Love the CBR tail on the Viper!
OH Yeah, (Sorry IF I missed this But I'll ask anyhow) Have you settled on a tail section OR... are you still up in the Air?

Caliper and rotors
That combo looks really good on the OZ Wheels, way better than the gold. Have you fired it up with those cans on it? Get your ear plugs ready but I do like the way they sound on Jess' bike.

Teaser shot of the cans:

Small update for now. Got the coolant overflow bottle mounted, and the titanium cans came in, so it is rideable other than exhaust hangers and getting it registered and plated. I think I'll just make some hangers with some aluminum flat stock since the exhaust isn't heavy at all. I still have to figure out the ignition, I still want to do an RFID keyless ignition, but that will have to wait until I tear it down again for a complete rewire and move everything around.
I did get the chance to a few things. I scored a set of brand new front brake rotors off a 06 or 07 CBR1000RR. They are a direct swap with the only difference being the thickness of the rotors. They increased the RC rotor thickness on the SP2 model to battle warping issues, so hopefully these won't do that. If it happens, I can always use the stock rotors.
I mainly did this just for looks, as I absolutely ****ing hate gold shit. If I had the money, I would tear down the Íhlins rear shock and anodize it black. I also installed some black caliper brackets that I have been holding onto for a while.
$85 of goodness:
Old rotor, ugly gold anodizing:
New black rotors:
What the ugly ass stock gold calipers and rotors used to look like:
All together now:
