Lightbulb 06 cbr 1000rr - Let the mods begin

So I picked up this bike about a month ago... upgraded from a red/black 600. It's absolutely stock and had 3000 miles when i picked her up from a dealer for a great price. I have plans for this bike and I wanna post my progress in this thread. Starting with the simple mods and then working up towards a theme I have in mind. I have about $2k to blow on mods... it will mostly be cosmetic stuff, but I have a few performance mods in mind too.



Stay tuned...

Added a pro grip tank pad to protect from zipper rash...



And of course I had to get rid of some cheezy decals...

Thanks man. Yea the bike is super clean and I want to keep all the mods tasteful and not tacky like some of the stuff I've seen people do.

Here are some of the things I have planned:

1) Flush Mount Blinkers
2) Integrated Tail light
3) Fender Eliminator
4) Tinted Wind Screen
5) Two Brothers Carbon M2 Slip-On
6) Custom Bi-Xenon Headlight
7) Custom 3rd Eye
...and I'm on the fence about adding led/underglow and powder coating the footpegs black.

Once I get that^ far, I'll be able to sit back and figure out where to go next.

I'm probably going to get the flush mounts from Hot Bodies.

The Bi-Xenon lights are going to be a custom project.... i'm doing them myself. I work in electronics, so I'm fully prepared to tackle the challenge.

I'm still working on my shopping list for everything and will begin ordering stuff soon. I'll keep this post updated as I do everything.

You loose your daytime running lights with hot bodies. Proton flush mounts are better IMO.
