First topic message reminder :

Hi I'm not sure if this is the place to do this but here goes. I bought my cat about a week ago and have enjoyed getting to grips with it pale
I'm going to hang on until the weather gets too bad to ride with confidence and then start the job of bringing the bike back to tip top condition :whoop:
I'll put some pics up once I have worked out how to get them off my phone confused
So keep checking and please comment if you think I'm going wrong anywhere. clink

Very nice....job well done.

For number plate illumination I think you need a white light but I remember greencat and eddie990 had ninja's with a tiny white led that didn't actually light it up but was enough to be mot'able and road legal.

I'm sure they'll be along to clarify.

Cheers

I put an aftermarket LED numberplate light into the Daytona's rear light for MOT, I flush mounted it into the light housing.

The tail-tidy I had on the Ninja had a built in single white LED. Doesn't sound like it was very effective Shocked, but it passed two MOT' s. Number plate illumination and a red reflector on the rear (usually fixed to the plate) is, I believe, required.

BTW excellent job and a fantastic thread. Thanks for posting it. great Cool

I've only just seen this thread, sat here for two hours reading and looking at the pics, what you have done is amazing....

Where did you get your indicators from and how did you fit them to fairings?

Lovely Bike can't wait to see it in the flesh....

suprise Bought some Genmar bar risers

Post  supraloopy on Wed Jun 26 2013, 17:25

Got them today and fitted them, they are so easy to fit and can't wait to ride it to see the difference Very Happy
I got them from johnny rockers speed shop on ebay and for ebay sellers they are great I highly recommend them.
I'll let you know if they are worth the £100 after a good ride but the quality of the machining is very good and you would not know you have raised the bars up and back:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
