Wink Progress report 2

I'm finally done with the work on the engine/exhaust/plastics/etc. so I was able to get her back together (minus the heat shields).

Full view with the family:



Rear view of new signals:



Gauges from the front:



Gauges from the seat:

For those that are interested, the new signals in the rear are actually stock Kawi signals from a Ninja 650R (removed from the stalks/bases), and the new front signals are made by Targa but I don't have a part number now. Overall I'm pleased with the outcome, and am happy to see that the charging system is working just fine! I've said it before and I'll say it again - thanks to everyone on this board. Your help an input has been invaluable.

looks good cept for that the seat cover could be tightened, and maybe put a left foot peg on it?

Looks really good. I like the blacked out instrument and headlight housings, and the new signals look cool, too.

Very nice. Really nice job on the gauges and the headlight housing. Good job on the voltmeter and the turn signals as well. Methinks I will go take my bike apart

I'm glad to have provided inspiration for other members. It really makes me feel good. As for putting the voltmeter where it is I sorta copied someone else on that, but it was the only "natural" place to put it when doing that type of gauge. You really can't see it well, but I also painted the headlight bucket black.

I just **knew** someone was going to notice I didn't have the left foot peg on... As for the seat, I have a new (to me) one on the way from a board member that has the original leather cover, so this will be my experimental one. I also have some foot pegs on order but they're taking forever (ordered 1/25). I'll post up some more pics when they come in and are mounted.

Thanks for the compliments and keep the rubber side down!

Looking good

I've been wanting to paint my headlight & instrument housings for awhile now. Probably flat or satin black.
Never thought about painting the meter case/dash though. Good idea.

....Two thumbs up! Great looking job. The newer turn signals really compliment the timeless look of the bike.
