Changing Cat

Post  ThunderSteve on Thu Mar 21 2013, 01:52

My Cat was tired when I first got her.





Frame sprayed black silk and front wheel sprayed in Nissan metallic gold, ran out of paint for the rear wheel so just waiting on more arriving.





Rear fairings being carbon wrapped next Friday and I'll respray the rest of the fairings next week hopefully. My rear shock is just about dead so on the hunt for a new one (anyone have one they would like to sell?)

I'll pop pics on as i go

I too had mine refurbed and it came back better than the original, it was also approx half the price of shelling out for a new Hagon off eBay and to be honest as the original is so notoriously crap unless refurbed with new seals, springs etc buying a second hand one off eBay could be a bit of a gamble.

The one you end up with could be no better than the one you have now

True.

Would you go for a refurb or fit a modded r6 shock?

good question Steve.

Also, how difficult would it be to mod one or will it fit straight on with a bit of patience.

Yeah you would need to use an 06 and younger r6 shock with an adapter from either Projection Components in the UK

or Lewis Fab in the US

Very Happy
