From the front - tell me what you think of the headlight it came on the bike

I painted the chain guard and put a few decals on there and pealed them back off to reveal the silver paint under it - then clear coat and buffed to a wicked shine

My nexxus full system - going to get a Warx one from fleabay

The tank pad

The speedo - want to change it but dont have the money yet

Image


The down pipes - i took them off and sanded all the rust off and back down to bear metal - then sanded with wet and dry untill it looked like chrome

The new indicators i got from ebay for £6 but had to replace the bulbs as they flashed to fast

Looked like you need some image and youtube tags.

Use the IMG tags on each side of your pictures url:

Code: Select all

[img]Insert your image URL here[/img]

Code: Select all

[YouTube]Insert your youtube video code here (i.e VpT3TVIWonc)[/YouTube]

800 px is an internet standard image size. It keeps the images viewable on computers, phones, etc., and keeps users from having to scroll sideways to view large images (which can be frustrating). And honestly, it saves your loving Administrator from paying for excessive bandwidth use on the site's host. :???:

there you go changed them now - and you said that it keeps your bandwith down - but from being a web designer the [img] tag only downloads it on the users computer and not the hosts server so it shouldn't effect your bandwidth ( at least that what i think).

Nice Bike I like that headlight.

Could you post up how your speedo is mounted? I believe the I have the same one (Baja Designs) that I took off my KTM, wanted to put it on the xj but didnt really see how to do it without a lot of fabbing. Thanks!!
