    Winter project, Goin' Naked...

    Took the front end off last week, and got my new naked kit in today.

    This summer:

    I removed the fairing from my FZ last winter due to the poor airflow and resulting noise and helmet buffeting. I have no regrets. The bike is much more enjoyable to ride without the fairing. After selling the fairing, the net cost of the change was about $0.

    I'm pulling mine mainly for atheistic, I just like the way it looks naked so much better. I've got the front end all off, but realized I left my 27mm at work, so I can't pull the upper clamp so I can drill/tap the holes for my naked conversion. Looks like I'm as far as I can get today, I'll post more pics once I get some more work done.

    Yep, this bike looks so much more modern as a naked bike. The half fairing is nasty

    UPDATE! Remembered to bring home the correct socket and got the top clamp off and ready to get drilled/tapped for my new mounting bracket.
