Hi all

I am going to be starting my CAT project any week now, just wanted to see/check if anyone has any suggestions on upgrades, checks and maintenance I should do while the bike will be stripped down. Your know things like parts to clean and check which you would normally struggle to reach etc.

An advice would be much appreciated

Wouldn't bother with that tail light personally. You are just asking to be rear ended with it. The brake light hides the turn signal and vice versa. If you've ever followed a Golf/Eos/VW with the circular lights you will get the idea.

Braided lines and R6 calipers
Perhaps consider buying some ACF 50 to spray into the harder to reach areas?

+1 to this, and as I've said before, as you are stripping it make notes of the things that need replacing and the things that you'd LIKE to replace. That way you'll not forget the bits that need replacing and if money starts getting tight you'll be able to see which are the NEEDS and which are the WANTS, it might help to note how easy it is to get to these parts, if you have a want and it's in a right pig of a place to get to when the back is together and the engine in you might as well upgrade it to a NEED.

Oh and buy a load of take away plastic tubs with lids otherwise you will lose parts and bolts and it will annoy and worry the bejesus out of you.
