    I dig it. Have thought about doing something similar on mine. I'm jealous of all the cool billet bits you've got. These motors do seem pretty bomb proof, I flog the crap out of mine, but it still seems about as strong at 31k miles as it did at 8k when I first got it. Tranny seems to have gotten a bit sloppier, not bad though.

    Yeah I was lucky to find this one with all the trick bits and I only had to add a bit .Best of all was the price,because of high miles,but as you say these motors seem to last.

    This is what I came up with after seeing this thread which reignited my previous idea to make for a more unique cover than stock. I think you might have done a bit more of a sano job...I knew I shouldn't have trusted my free hand abilities. Looks decent enough from a few feet away at least. Strangely enough, after looking on ebay, it appears I've got a 955 cover for some reason. 1050 covers are a bit less featureless in the molding, areas that I used on mine. Given that I have a 99' year frame and my bikes basket case roots, It's not too surprising that that part is different.

    Sprayed the sprocket cover in graphite color plastic wrap. Cut out a triangle in the chain guard exposing more of the black and gold chain. Ended up painting the brake hose cover blue to tie in with the hoses, chain guard is gloss back.
