orange racing stripes

today, I ordered 3.5" orange racing stripes to place down the middle of the entire bike. hopefully by this weekend I can get them installed and will post a pic of the new look on my street 750.

also seeking info on where to buy mirror extenders that will fit this bike.

very close.....that does look pretty good I must say.

the kind of stripes I ordered is three stripes, the middle will be 3.5 " wide and two, one on each side of that will be like 1/4" wide, and ill put mine down the middle. I seen on you tube, I think it was at a Canadian dealership, they did several different "streets" with in a certain budget of their own modifications, one of which had the orange racing stripes. I loved that look! it inspired this old man to try and achieve that same look.

next will be getting the orange stitching on the seat, the exhaust slip on, the fp3 programmer, k&n air filter, grips, pegs, would really like if I could find aftermarket cam to get the loping sound into the engine, and add a bit of nitrous injection....lol

I like your little windshield. I had a larger one on and decided it was too big. How did you do it?

Also, what's your bag attached to? I've been trying to find a spot.

Thanks

the tank bag (Joe Rocket Hammerhead) is held on by strong magnets it has built into it, would be advisable to also place a vinyl cling on protective sheet between the paint and the bag other wise small light abrasions will occur over time.

the small fairing/cowling extension, I cut from a mirror tinted flip up helmet shield that I had but never used, then I used pop rivets to attach it to the cowling/faring. main reason I did this was to cover the speed odometer from the suns bright glare during the day. doesn't really do much as far as wind protection though.
