Now can anyone tell me what fricking exhaust that is? lol...

Yeah, I think I convinced myself to do the street fighter conversion in the last hour or so of searching aftermarket parts. Wish me luck!

since you own the bike, now you can build it however you want it. i wouldnt worry too much about the cosmetic issues and get her running, strip off all the broken pieces and start from there. do a search on CF for Ninja 650, there are a few good projects there you might be able to get some ideas from.

So far I found everything I want/need minus the headlights and gauge cluster. Now I'm getting a bit excited and I feel like it will be super sweet to have something customized just how I want it.

I just recently found these guys. I would have bought their dual 4" lights with flyscreen, but I already have had my bike in the paint shop since Dec. 5, and he's already painted my current flyscreen (as well as ScooterTrash PC-ing my stock headlight bucket). But check them out!

I will make a build thread for sure.

And yeah, I saw the woodcraft sets earlier but they still seem too expensive. Maybe I'm just cheap.

yes, but there is the basic idea of what you would need. im sure if he had the right motivation he would DW, or just message him for the dimensions to the mounts and where the master and the peg/foot controls mount, its a simple grid of points. you could easily work up a print and take it to a local shop and get them done far cheaper than a $400 dollar set, plus you could change the design to your taste. i might have to break out my cad software and show yall how to DW

I bet you cannot do this.


(Actually I bet you can and would prefer you to if it will save me from having to spend $350 on this )

I used CAD in high school a bit, but that was now like 10 years ago and while I am very proficient with computer hardware/software I would need to go pirate CAD and figure it out for myself.

I almost guarantee that I will eventually break down and buy this woodcraft set, because it seems like with the cylinder on the right side, it's going to be ****ing complicated with this spring bullshit etc...

if someone local could machine us a new set of rearsets i'd be interested. as long as they don't weigh 7lbs, are cheaper than the woodcrafts, and are goodlooking lol so the opposite of stock =)

wouldnt be hard. i am a cad drafter/cnc programer/operator, but im not working at a shop, got tired of the hours. i can talk to some people i know though and see if i can get some time on a machine. it would be cheaper if more people wanted them since once you get the machine set up, you are ready to run as many as you want. i would have to have a set to measure up to do a take off of the originals but like i said, anything is possible.
