This is what the JCCS staff rode around on. I haven't seen one since we were in Japan.

A few recent shots of my bike from today...

I know it's been a while since I posted photos of the bike, so today I snapped a few with my wife's new Sony Cybershot. Since "finishing" the bike, I have made a few minor changes.  Namely, I removed the crappy eBay mirrors and put the stock mirrors back on. The eBay mirrors were not really long enough to adjust into a position where I could see more than my shoulders, and they were just a little to obnoxious anyway.   So I put the stock mirrors back on and I think I will keep them on until I find a better option.

I also changed the rear sprocket to a black one I found online and did a quick head light grill mock up with tape just to see if I like it.  I'm not sure if I will build an actual grill or not.

K&N Filter Install

A few people have also asked about the K&N filter, and how difficult the install was.  In a nut shell, it was very, very easy, and with a little work, this could be done without buying the kit from Japan.

You can domestically get the filter, it is K&N #RB-0510.  Then you just need to find a ring for the filter to clamp to. I bet you could use a piece of steel pipe of the right diameter and thickness, cut down to a ring with a saw.  See the instruction sheet after the cut.
