Mods only lads, I paid 7k for the bike in 2008, only had my licence 4 years so far.
Ok, mods only.. £2.81?
I rekon you must have spent a good 1.5k so far.
No way! Quickshifter, exhaust, tonnes and tonnes of carbon, brakes, and at one point wasn't it streetfightered? New tank, lenses, numberplate mods.... hell there's 1.5ks worth of bits on my ST and you can barely even notice them
arrr my bad, completly forgot about all the other goodies. my focus was taken away by all the sheer amount of carbon
Hmmm I guess around 3.5k,
1.5k on exhaust, brakes, quickshifter, rearsets.

If it makes you happy then fair play. I personally think it's an abomination but each to their own.
LOL I don't care TBH.
Of course you don't.
Just because he wants honest opinions, doesn't mean he can't disagree with them . Different strokes for different folks and all that...
£2k isn't too bad, I'd of expected a bit more.
For the Mille - a pair of 20mm ktech fork piston kits and a penske 3-way shock will set you back over £1k. Add in a full titanium 2-2 akra race system and thats another £1800.
It all tots up eventually.
True, suspension will be next, K-tech spring and cartridge kit, and then set up by Racing Lines in Derby.
I like that now - porn!!!
i'm just gonna go to my room now.... lol
I just can't wait for the bloody carbon side panels to arrive, it's killing me lol
just talking about it is talking dirty.
not that i have a carbon fibre fetish... lol...
How much is that out of interest. I was going to get maxton to sort my forks with their catridge kit and either get them to rebuild my rear shock with their spring etc or replace with their race shock
Not my cup of tea but absolutely 100% fair play to him for making his bike his own. Me and the lads are like that with our cruisers. We're chrome whores though rather than carbon fibre.
That carbon is ridiculously cheap I'm too used to what people who make carbon bits for KTM seem to want. I thought it'd be 2k on carbon alone!
That is overdone IMO. I've thought about buying nice bits for my bikes, but have ended up spending more on training rather than the bikes.
What total weight losses are you looking at all in?
Each to their own though, got to love the dedication you've put in.
