Kitaco Master Cylinder Protector over Black CNC Reservoir Cover and Titanium Levers w/ Blue Adjusters, plus Titanium Grips (all changed out from the blue ones I had before because of too much color variation in the blues):

Moth Racing Fork Sliders:

Pretty much done now, except for adding a Yoke Protector and swapping out stock tires for Bridgestone S-20 EVOS (in stock sizes) that I just bought from BikeBandit.com for $200 shipped, for the set. I'm also considering getting my wheels powder-coated either White or Gold when I do the tire changeout (any thoughts on that?)

Plus, I want to try adding a 1/2" blue stripe on either side of the Yamaha Racing Stripe to put a touch of blue onto the fairings. And add a Yamaha Tuning Forks Logo (like the gas tank ones) decal on the front fender in place of the Yamaha lettering.

I'm just about out of my allowed space for attachments, so will have to delete a few photos in older threads to post final photos of the bike. Stay tuned...

Looks great Fang. Any notable difference between stock and powerbronze double bubble? What are the frame sliders?

Double Bubble seems to direct air higher up and to the sides better. I like it better than the stock screen. Do wish it were darker, though, but I also bought one of the dark black tinted ones, so I can swap them out if I want.

Cheers!

Part 5a....? You've done so many upgrades to your R3 that your upgrade categories need subcategories. Lol

Yep, 40+ mods and counting!!!! AND I think I've spent about twice what I usually do on a new bike for mods. :eek:

I though I'd need two parts to that thread because of Forum photo limits per thread, but I managed to pare it down to just 10 photos.

5b will be the final report, coming end of this week. I'm just waiting on one graphics piece from Webike to arrive. (It's here. Pick it up tomorrow at the P.O. and install it).

Hey Fang! Just to be sure (their English description being so bad), are those race hooks sold individually on Webike? Thanks man!

Are you posting photos directly from your phone or computer, or are you using photobucket.com and selecting "IMG" to copy them over here? Would it make any difference for the max posting allowance here?

BTW, gold rims. White is a pain to keep clean (after every ride, or they look grey due to brake dust). Lose the Yamaha stripes on the tail section; they looked forced (like you had them and just really wanted to stick them somewhere on the bike. Less is more).

Posting from computer. Photos are large files from dig camera, not phone.

Noted on the tail stripes....

Just curious, what modification was done to the R6 tire hugger to make it fit on the R3. Any cutting or drilling?. I can see a zip tie on the swing arm. I'm guessing that's what's holding in place on that side. Cheers

I used a Dremel tool with a cut off wheel to cut a portion of the drive side off so it would fit down close to the swingarm, then drilled a few holes in the hugger and the chain cover to make attaching points. That zip tie you see is to stabilize the right side since there's no tab on the swingarm to attach it to.

Zip ties show if you look hard at it but I've had several people look at the hugger without noticing them. Clueless Sods? Maybe so....

The hugger was, if I remember correctly, only $25 through aliexpress. They have a very wide assortment.
