Hi all,
This is my first roadie. I have grown up riding dirt bikes, but now they just look like pain (must be getting old). Anyhow I missed riding and decided to get back into it. I bought an Er6n, as they feel like a cranky dirt bike to ride with the riding position, and heaps more grip on the road.

I love the street fighter/cafe look, so I have started to build my bike so it looks factory, but how I would do it.....if that makes sense??

This is as bought. Land vehicle Vehicle Car Motorcycle Motor vehicle

Thanks guys.
So today I took the right radiator fairing off to measure up, so I can make my own much smaller version. Once I have made these, I will relocate the turn signals to the front next to the headlight.
I also had to sit my overflow bottle on the bike to see what it will look like.

Should have this side done in the next few days.

I have the other shroud marked up with measurements, ready to cut, bend and beat, if your interested, I can give you detailed instructions on how to do it, and all the bits I have used so far.

Ok, so I managed to finish the left shroud.

This is the right side, but you can see where to weld.

I also just ordered a progressive rear shock, so once I fit the bars and shock, I think I'm done for a while.
Cheers

I was going to stop mucking around with this thing for a while, but the bug has well and truly bitten.

First up, I replaced the rear shock

And that made a huge difference and got me thinking about the front suspension. So I changed the springs and added preload adjusters.

And I am stoked. Next on the list is juice box pro and a bmsc filter and air box mod.
