New guy with a couple ?s

Hey whats up everyone... I am currently sitting in Iraq dreaming of the day i get to spend quality time with my 9 deuce 9 again... I figured though, while I'm here making all this money with nothing to spend it on, might as well pretty up the bike, a friend of mine Just painted all the bodywork for me (black base with a pearl that goes from blue to green to purple to red, thanks Jason and Ryan at Shades of competition in Anchorage) but now i need to make the rest of the bike as good, i think im gonna swap out my 2 brothers aluminum slip on for a carbon fiber piece, any reccomendations? also im looking for a place to find some other cf goodies, im having trouble finding websites with 929 parts, well I guess this post has taken up enough of your time so ill let yall go, any feedback would be greatly appreciated...

Re: New guy with a couple ?s

How about an Arata Full exhaust.
Sato Rearsets.
Ohlins forks and shock.
Ohlins or Scotts damper.
Marchesini Wheels.
Wave Rotors.
Stainless Steel brake lines with some HRC pads.
AFAM Chain and sprocket kit with a DID ERv2 chain.
Frame sliders.
Look up "Kyle Racing Engines" they have a 929 section.
Unfortunately the 929 is four generations old ( the cbr1000rr is already on its second revision) so finding a 929 catalog will be difficult. You're better off looking at the parts you like, then checking to see if they make one for the 929.

Re: New guy with a couple ?s

You guys are doing a hellava job. Welcome and come home safely! Ditto on what nedro said about Dan Kyle's website. I hear he does good suspension work. Can't wait to get my forks back and see for myself....

Re: New guy with a couple ?s

Nice, thanks for all the help, and all the support everyone, I gotta admit it does feel good to actually get a little support every now and then, I've had the bike a while, done the whole damper, sliders, sprockets, slip on thing that you just gotta do as soon as you get a bike, but never really thought about making it any prettier than it already was till the guy volunteered to paint the dang thing for free...(once again its nice to get some support ever now and then lol) problem is now the paint just made the rest of the bike look well...old... so its time to throw some money into the sexy factor...just found out i got a little one on the way so cant get too wild with the suspension mods and everything, but i have recieved clearance from the wife to get a few little things.

Lol my wife knows better than to come between me and my first true love, I have been riding something my whole life, and will continue to for the rest of it, that was part of our verbal prenup lol...plus she wants me to teach her anyway, got her tearin it up on the pit bike already. She is fighting a losing battle against me taking one of the wheels off the ground though hah

oh man the riding is amazing in Alaska.... scenery is insane, lots of good twisties, in the summer the weather where i am is always 70's, and it doesnt get dark at all, just gets dim around 11pm or so...the only problem is after the snow melts there is alot of gravel for a little while, other then that its perfect, if i could figure out how i would post a couple pics up

Re: New guy with a couple ?s

see if this works, know 2 of the pics were too big, gotta resize em, but one pic is of the painted bike, its the one showing the least of how dirty the bike is (just got in from a ride right before we tore it down) and the smudges from where he put it back toghether, i should get some clean pics of it in the sun here soon, the other is pre paint, an old pic of some of the riding... mines the yellow, the other bike is my buddys 954
