    Gettin' close!

    Been working heavily to finish my naked conversion. Still have to get the cluster properly mounted, and I don't have any mirror on it yet, but I did run it around my block last night. Feels COMPLETELY different than when it had a full nose on it. Lots of parts will be up for sale soon.

    Looks good..

    How's it feel different? Just not seeing the old fairing not moving/ not there?

    Also, I think you had an issue on another thread. What was that and was it resolved?

    Yeah, everything just feels more open. It's a different experience without having the nose blocking your view, and there's a lot more airflow, so no more overheating while wearing full gear. I was looking for a factory wiring harness in another thread (if that's what you're referring to), just so I didn't have to chop up the harness. I ended up pulling the battery and battery box, and bundled up all the excessive harness in the frame right tin front of the battery. This worked really well. I only have low beam/driving light right now, I'll wire in the high beam once I convert the H4 to LED. I also replaced all the turn signals with factory LED ones. The only normal bulbs I have left are the headlight and plate bulb. The "kit" I bought is missing a few grommets, so I'm hunting those down right now. They are what lock the cluster in place, so it wobbles around a bit right now. I also need to drill/tap the front brake reservoir for my right side mirror. That's a "this weekend" project.

    Nice! If you end up getting bar-end mirrors I'm needing one of the oem ones.

    The ones that attach to the factory nose? If so, I definitely won't be using them. I have FZ8 style mirrors that I'm putting on it now.

    I think the right side mirror is reverse thread, the left side regular.

    I know one them is backwards so might want to check on that before drilling, tapping threads.

    Or use FZ 8 bar mounts!
