Thanks! I'm glad I went with the gray over white, but I do wish it was a little darker. It just looks a little blueish to me.


I now have front and rear brake lines, the front fender complete, and an HRC kit radiator overflow. Honda loves to put their radiator bottles in ridiculous, inaccessible locations so I've removed the stock one and put the new one up top on the fairing stay.

I bought a 929/954 steering stabilizer bracket hoping that the piece that mounts to the gas tank would be the same bolt spacing as the f4i. It is and bolts up perfectly, the piece that goes on the triple fits perfect as well being that it's a 929 front end. But, the distance between the triple and gas tank must be different on the 929/954. While everything bolts up like it should, it puts a serious angle to the stabilizer itself and maxes out the joints when turning, no good.

I did find a bracket set for this front end conversion specifically and have it on the way. It puts the stabilizer on the front side of the lower triple instead of up top on the gas tank which is inconvenient, but it should work. I've also decided I don't like the current clip-ons and have a new set arriving tomorrow. I'll have to buy riser posts to use them but they are much more adjustable than my current bars and should be much more comfortable.

I am still in shock that your gauge cluster melted from the sun. lol. Seriously though, it's nice to see you guys are making progress on your projects!
