  1. So I've decided that the only mod that I want to do on my 5th gen is the paint the wheels silver to match the frame. I plan on taking the wheels off, cleaning them, wet sanding them, masking the tires and bearings and then use spray paint in a can that is specific for wheels. I know that some of you guys have done this as I've seen pics and it is what inspired me to do the same. I'm just wondering which paint you used and how close of a match was it to the frame? There seems to be a lot of shades of silver out there in spray paint. Thanks!
  2. Welcome! I just picked up an 01 and 02 last month. Congrats on your new ride Duck!
  3. Here are some lovely ladies from the 2013 MotoGP at Laguna Seca.
  4. St. Stephen and Dutchy, thanks for your last contributions to this thread. Been a bit busy but here are a few from the 2013 MotoGP at Laguna Seca. My wife says he has pretty eyes....now I can't unsee it. LOL A privilege to hang in Colin's Garage. The podium! Nice to see you up there Bradl Not for long Alvaro! Vale chasing Andrea Good ol' Ben Cal
  5. expvet, thanks for your reply. It was not the from the radiator overflow tank. Thanks! It was the over flow for the tank. What confused me most was that it was laying along the side of the airbox similar to how it is in my photo. I saw a few diagrams in the owner's manual but it did not show me how it was connected. I found this online and it helped me track down where it connects. http://members.home.nl/jfknippels/tank_removal.html 9th pic down. Reconnected and all is well. Cheers!
  6. Thanks for the info. I downloaded the manual and will take a look. I thought that as well that it came off the tank, but I can't find any place on the underside where it could have come off. I appreciate your reply! Cheers!
  7. So I finally got around to check and see if the flapper/snorkel/PAIR mod was done on my recently acquired 6th gen (it was). I also took out the air filter and cleaned it up. However, I found this tube just laying there and I don't know where it goes. It is a vent tube however I cannot find where it went originally. Any pointers? I'm still waiting for the owner's manual so if there is one online, that would b great as well. Thanks!
  8. Here are some from 2016 WSBK at Laguna Seca. #22 Alex Lowes Turn 9 The late great, #69 Nicky Hayden Top of the world famous Corkscrew, #66 Tom Sykes, #7 Chaz Davies, #1 Johnny Rea, #34 Davide Guigliano #1 Johnny Rea in the Corkscrew #95 Roger Lee Hayden got an opportunity to do a wildcard on the Suzuki.
  9. These are very cool! I remember watching Elena and Cam Beaubier hashing it out at a little track in Stockton when they were around 10-12 years old. Shame that she dropped out of the racing scene. Thanks for sharing!
  10. Again, loving the stories behind the pics. Good stuff! Dutchy! Love those shots! Looks like you guys were able to get into the paddock! Always nice to interact with the racers!
  11. Indeed I did. Actually I purchased them 4 days apart! LOL! While I am a firm believer that suspension is one of the most important things to be addressed, I still want to get the best bang for the buck. I am sure that spending $1300 with Jamie on his new BD product will get me one of the better setups as far as suspension, I also need to realize that $1300 is more than 1/3rd the total cost of the motorcycle. With Ohlins even more. I know I can't go wrong with either. I guess it all boils down to what I really want to invest in both bikes. I will always deal with getting suspension setup correctly before doing any engine or cosmetic mods.
  12. Aside from the suspension bits from Jamie Daugherty, what else is out there? Obiously if money were no object I could go Ohlins but I hear Racetech springs are an option as well? While I'm already leaning in Jamie's direction I also want to do my due diligence and make sure I'm making a good investment.
  13. I had long conversation with Jamie today. Good guy for sure. I was debating the F4i front end conversion but decided I wanted to keep things mostly stock. I will most likely do the new BD series on my 01 and the revalve/spring and rework the rear on the 02. He gave me a ballpark figure of $1300 for the BD solution for my 01 and $650 for the 02.
  14. Sorry to revive and old thread but I want to do the same for my 01 for the twistys and my 02 for 2 up riding. Do you mind sharing how much this set you back? I know there are many options like having Jamie rework a rear from a different model (929 seems to be the go to, but Blackbird as well?). Cheers!
