Time to show mine

Hi, it`s been a few months since i got my Furestorm(yep i am in Europe).
It initially was planed as a bike just for cruising, because i already had a bike for the track and for fun, my precious KTM 620 turned to SuMo bike.
I wanted i bike that i will only ride and not spend time for modding and upgrading....but, as alway the thing seem to turn different

Here is the bike how i bought it






I got it cheap, already pretty modded:
GSXR750 USD front end - 6 pots, 320mm rotors
Carbon cans
BMC air filter
fuel pump - tought it was OEM
CBR929 fairings, Castrol replica paint
Xenon spot light
(got it without the radial MC's and the steering damper)


The bike was not stopping good with the 6 pot and original MC so i put a 19mm NISSIN radial one. Got a set ot Ferodo SinterGrip pads and braided lines. Still haven`t installed the pads but the bike feels a lot better with the radial MC.

Reading the forum i had make a wish list for mods that will be done(may be not soon but some day)
- TPS mod - pretty easy and free
- Manual CCT - already bought OEM cbr cct and will make two manuals with the samo mesurements
- since i got cans and filter i need to play with the carbs - i am thinkig of 2 long funnels(got a spare air box with the bike) and shimming the needles may be 48 pilots also. I got an idea for SP1 funnels, also two long, but the seem more like Dr Honda`s and may be better.
- rear shock spacer - cheap and easy, then way not
- ignition advance - searching a way to make a cheap one myslelf
- pair removal - may be plus oil catch tank
- Iriduim sparkplugs - not sure if i already got them
- lighten the flywheel - looking for spare flywheel to do this, will not risk mine

this is the list for now
i know it will not give more hp on dyno, but i seek for throttle response and drivability, which are, IMHO more important than dyno numbers

Long time passed since i bought my vtr and started this thread.
Many mods done, more to be done.

After cct failure, now the bike has manual ccts.
Bad thing was that cct failed in the middle of the summer, during my first track day with it, so i was not able to ride it for
the rest of the summer. It is running now, but the weather is no good for a bike, at least no good for a street bike as my brother and i
go in the woods from time to time with the KTMs.

After two inlet valves replacement, new head gasket and manual cct mod the bike startet but it wasn,t running well.
Several mods had been done since and now it is running strong.
-carb slide nad shimm mod
-#48 pilots, 178/180 mains
-balanced carbs
-coil on cap mod with triumph coils

-key barrel removed, toggle switch instead

rea shock was leaking so i changed it too
