Yup it killed all the body work but the frame is good.

I also forgot to mention that I have already received a new double bubble windscreen and new rearview mirrors....I need to get pics posted....

New double bubble and NOS mirrors...

Got the new old dirty "trunk" and rear light installed. Although the bulbs and sockets that I had from a newer F3 did not fit so I need to get another set. And I am thinking of adding an F3 trunk kit to get some real storage. Plus not having to remove the entire rear to get the seat off..

dude, can you post up a how to of how to replace plastic w/ broken tabs with those slick washers?

I'm not sure what plastic welding is or how/what tools one needs to do it. But, i tell you what, that washer fix is very cool, i have some tabs on my rear end plastics on the sv650 that need to be repaired and i'd like to do exactly what you did, seems like it would be sturdier than original (even if it cant be better)

I've never done it but I bet you could heat up a washer with a torch and press it into place in the plastic with a pair of pliers.

Ya, its simple. I used 3/8" washers and a standard 40W soldering iron. Actually I have been doing all the plastic repairs with that 40w iron. works real well.

Anyway, all I did was slip the washer onto the iron and let it rest on the "base" of the tip where. here the inside of the washer had full contact all the way around the iron so it would heat up pretty fast. Once it was on the iron for about 10 sec I just pressed it into the plastic ( while keeping the washer on the iron, keep the heat on) and positioned it. I used the iron to push it in.

Once it was set i pulled the iron out and it was set. Cool to the touch in about 1 min.

Well it has been a few months.. Vacations, Weddings, MS150 etc.. all are now done so I can get back to the bike.

Over the last few months I have been buying ALL the little parts that I knew I was needing.. I finally was able to get a few hours seeing how the new body parts fit. I bought a full bolt kit ( bike had 5 bolts holding the fairings on when I bought it ) I went with original parts as i heard bad things about the chineese versions. Both it fitment and thickness. I still have a few more cracks in a few body parts that I have to weld together. But I will do all of that before it is ready for final paint.

I did learn that a few parts that I thought were still ok were infact broke. Once the new un broken parts were in you could tell a few tabs and parts were broke off the original parts. So things do not quite line up correctly on the right side.

So far I am happy with what I am seeing.
