And Stateside again...
I'm going to look into something similar to what is on the viper: http://i253.photobucket.com/albums/hh80/bmiller123/RC 51/Viper/viper1_1.jpgLooks great! Can't wait to see it with the new exhaust! Have you considered any kind of mini-belly pan for below/in front of the oil-pan?
I wouldnt do a thing with the tail, except maybe replace it with a CF tyga 1 pc unit.

I just can't seem to find one that looks right, so I might have to make my own.
The tail, well my mind on that changes about once a week. I like the CBR tail, the 1098 tail, and the panigale tail also looks sweet....
This tail will stay on until the winter though. It has some rash on the other side, but it is decent enough for now. I just need to actually ride this thing. I haven't ridden in about five months and it is killing me.
I think the viper one is one off too, I've search high and low on the web and can't find anything similar. The Vtr one might work, but it is a little too pointy for my tastes.Ya, the viper one is awesome although a bit different that its not symetrical on both sides. Looks like theirs is a totally custom unit as well.
The only other thing I can think of is if you can find a VTR1000F OEM/Aftermarket bellypan, you may be able to make that work with some modification...?
A small update, gased it up and it fired on the first shot. Not bad for having it torn down to basically an engine siting in a rolling chassis. Almost have enough pennies saved up for some titanium cans from ladybird. Those will probably be getting ordered withing a month. I still have to bleed the rear brake and get the undertail and wiring in the tail sorted out.
I'm debating between the plain or the colored titanium cans. My mids are plain, but will turn blue on their own. Any thoughts?

Brand spanking new Öhlins rear shock from Dan Kyle Racing, my old Moriwaki suspension link and new Tyga hugger installed:
That's the euro cb1100 right? I'm not sure if I like the long belly pan. I'll have to ponder that one for a while.Looks great man! I think on your bike the blued cans would really throw off your monochromatic color scheme you have going on. I would go with the plain Ti if it was me.
How about a custom belly pan like this one? Just some more ideas to play with since as you said, your probably going to have to make it one-off.
Haha, sorry but gold colored stuff has always just looked tacky to me. Although, it didn't bother me enough to buy a different shock.If this was Facebook, we would no longer be friends.
I did take a quick stab at the starter this weekend, but it was around 2am and I didn't want to wake up the family. It actually wasnt as loud as I expected, I didn't give it much gas though.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.
