Recent pics of my 04 (Now with 100% more Auctmarts!)

Took some pictures of my bike plus some random closeups tonight. New mods from this weekend included a gutted airbox, '06 velocity stacks, shift support, brembo rear brake reservoir/stock reservoir and mount delete/exhaust heatshield mount delete, front galfer wave rotors and power commander.























Edit: Forgot to add that the decals on the tank came from Eddie. If you need anything made he can do it! The honda wings are damn close to OEM in color and size. Also, those are Auctmarts fairings. They are also pretty damn close to OEM in fit - the paint scratches incredibly easily though.

Link rod must approach shift arm at right angles.

Thanks for pointing that out Rip, I was looking at that the other day when I was installing the shift support. At least now I got confirmation that it's not where it should be. Looks like I'm gonna have to cut, drill and retap a new hole at the end to shorten it up.

I didn't know about the shift linkage either. Thanks for pointing that out I'm going to double check mine now.

Beautiful bike homie...I have a black 04, and been thinking about adding the gold v6's to keep me from getting an 08!! lol...Dont really want another vehicle payment at this time, so I decided to just "freshen up" the old 04. How much of a difference did the rims make with the handleing?

It's a bit different now, but they aren't too much lighter than stock anyway. Honda made some incredibly light rims for this bike so the stock ones weren't really heavy to begin with.

Did you notice a difference with the new velocity stacks?
I think the biggest difference is going to be at the top end where air velocity and volume is the highest. I'm not going to get this bike dyno tuned until i open up the head and put a HRC cam and springs into it. They are shaped differently with a wider radius, shorter outer stacks and taller inner stacks when compared to the 04' stacks that came out of it. It won't be noticeable by itself but when combined with exhaust, opened up airbox, race air filter and cams it can only help. I'm sure it freed up a horsepower or two.

Your bike looks really good, only thing i would changed if it was mine is the exhaust.
It's an old Jardine slipon which was already pitted and grimy from road wear which is why I had no problem cutting like 5" off the end of it. I didn't expect any power gains out of it, I just like the stumpy exhaust look. I'm sure it's not made nearly as well as or performs as well as something from akrapovic or arrow but I already have it and it matches the color of the swingarm more or less :laugh: I may go with a Ladybird GP can eventually.
