I fitted the LED front lights, super bright and freshens up the front end, however, I blatantly lied in the last post when I said there wasn't much left!
The front end (forks and brakes) have always seemed like a weak link, especially when I replaced the rear shock with a CBR600RR unit. When a set of Street Triple R forks, calipers and master cylinder came up on ebay for under £400 I jumped on it like a tramp on chips!
TBH the forks and calipers weren't in the best shape when I received them, so first job was to paint the fork bottoms with a few coats of black hamerite, Next up, they went to my local indie mechanic who charged £50 for an oil/seal change and general look over.
With the forks sorted I had the spray shop paint the calipers up to match my rear subframe and radiator cowls. All that was then left to do was to strip the old parts off and fit the new.
The previously plasti dipped forks and triples were stripped (plasti dip came off really well!) and then using a new headstock stand I spent a couple of hours swapping the parts over.
Given the impressive way the plasti dip had performed and the state of the anodising on the new forks, I decided to re-coat both the triples and forks. 6 layers later, the rebuild was complete.
Next job is to get the suspension set-up and then finally go for a blast!!
Erm.... then I think that is it! Or maybe after some Daytona cams......
