Looking good so far. I'm thinking of doing a swing arm swap, but I'm not sure about all the work that needs to be done. I live a small apartment, no garage so I'm goint o have to pay a shop to do the work $$$$.

thanks. However, with an 18 month-old daughter, a full-time job and freelancing for a bike mag on the side (plus karate classes three tiems per week), time is a bit of a problem. If you decide to part with them separately just let me know (assuming you kept the originals of course).

Good choice. Gas is cheaper than ammunition anyway.

If you decide to whip up another batch of those carbon carb support plates let me know I couldn't be bothered with doing it myself at this point.....

ok, maybe I don't need them that bad then......lol

I just ordered a set of the 105mm bolts (that hold everything together) out of aluminum. Won't save me a ton of weight but it is up high and didn't cost too much so what the hell....

Looks good Hawkster. Where did you buy your CF plate from? Thickness? Double sided?

I think a different tail would really complement the sharp look the bike has. Somehow the stock tail is kinda bulbous.

Hawkster, keep up the awesome work. This could be the VTROM(VTR of the millineum). I can't wait to see your bike finished. Are you going to finish it up as a streetfighter? It would be kind of a shame to cover all your work with a fairing.

That tail looks kinda bulky. Doesn't quite flow into the rest of the bike. But your fairing selection will look great. Not bagging on you, I wish I had your talent.

Hawkster-Those calipers look nice. Your workmanship is great, keep it up. I look forward to your updates, being just a parts changer myself.

My hawk is pretty stock

Hawkster,
That rs250 tail is a perfect match for the fairing (the Spanish one) you've chosen. LED's are probably the best bet for your tail and signal lights, flush mount them.

I like the wave rotors just fine. The TBR exhaust sounds great and works well with the rest of the mods.

Your hawk is coming along fine, keep it up!

Almost three years in this build! Lots of love and dedication to this bike you have. Can't wait to see it finished. I'm starting a build of my own so it's fun to read all the mods and problems that you have run into and overcome. Be proud of youself man! This bike is going to be beautiful!
