Modifications

Drivetrain
I've been riding on the dark side for several years now. This tire is going to push the limits. I love the look.
Interior
Replaced the stock clutch springs with heavier springs and bolts. Swapped a final drive with a VTX 1300 rider. I think we're both happier. I bought the Fi2000 POWRPRO chip. Haven't ridden it with that yet. I'll let you know how that goes. Rebuilt the Clutch slave assembly while I had the engine out. New cylinder, oil seals and spring.
Exterior
Doing the new build with a mad stad windshield on a shark nose like fairing.
Audio
Custom swing arm for wide tire and mono-shock. Added progressive springs to the front forks.
Wheel and Tire
Custom lights all around. The rear run/stop/turn lights are two arrays of 128 rgb leds each. Everything is controlled by a Raspberry Pi computer I am programming in python. I'll have to upload a video of the prototype setup. Pretty cool. Right now I have the rear lights in the shape of a capital X, but can change it to circles, squares or even hearts for valentines day. Anything you can dream up.
