Default Finished Product? 2006 'Esmeralda'

I think so - there really isn't anything else I can think of that I want to do. I think she's done. Maybe I can finally concentrate on riding her now, though I've found that I get immense satisfaction from working on bikes... maybe even more so than riding them. It's a little sick.

Here's a list of mods:

Suspension:
-Racetech .95 springs/15 weight oil
-Ohlins HO155 rear shock

Performance:
-K&N air filter
-Dynojet stage 1 jet kit
-Mivv X-Cone exhaust

Drive train:
-Sunstar 14T front sprocket
-Vortex 45T rear sprocket
-Healtech speedo healer

Protection:
-Jaybee's fork sliders
-FE front fender extension
-Offbrand crash bars
-Puig rear hugger

Controls:
-Renthal road low handlebars
-Progrip grips
-Speedmetal bar ends
-Offbrand folding levers
-Aprilia Tuono mirrors

Maintenance:
-SW Motech center stand
-HiFlo reusable oil filter
-Magnetic oil drain plug
-Honda 04/06 CB600F factory manual

Misc Aethetics:
-Cut rear fender

I definitely spent a TON of time on this site reading and pulling the vast amounts of knowledge from everyone here. I really appreciate those who've contributed - this project could've been so much more difficult. Thanks for all of the help!

I lied!

I just realized a DID gold chain would look pretty good... maybe in the next couple months

Hey, thanks 370steve!

Honestly, you've probably got the most input into how I've gone about working on her. From the suspension, to the carbs, to the gearing... I can pinpoint specific areas where I'd relied on specifically your advice/knowledge from this and other forums.

I've also been looking for an older bike to start a new project on, inspired by your retro build. Pretty cool considering you're thousands of miles away, and some of your posts are from years ago.

So, thanks again!
