They look good, can you see out of them and where are they available? Also do they fold in as i need to filter through small gaps in London?
Cheers

Yeah, I'm kinda pissed about the fuel cap pad as they don't make em anymore. Its a tank pad material sticker I found on ebay and then they stopped selling them a month or two after I bought mine. I get emails from time to time from people asking where I found it, and all I can do is point them to the other gas cap decal I know of, but looks like a decal rather than the shiny raised fuel cap like mine. Gonna eventually replace it with a keyless billet cap.

My next bolt on will be my GSXR1k5 front end swap. Unbolt the old and install the new! Just need to get the tapered bearings for the stem and a spacer kit from Racecomp. I'm so excited! I just can't hide it! lol.

Not going to tell the wife about the price tag until I have to... The current front springs and fluid is shot though, and I figure doing a rebuild kit on the calipers, springs, valves, etc would cost about as much or more than what I'll have into this front end! The damn seals alone for the calipers was almost $100! To rebuild the calipers completely would have been almost half what I'm paying for the entire GSXR front end!

Less unsprung weight, better overall damping because of the nitride coated tubes, better front brakes that hopefully won't go mushy, and GSXR caliper rebuild kits should be cheaper at the dealer.

Oh, and they're gold so they MUST be good, right?

Also, they'll give the front end a bit beefier look.

Yeah, my suspension has turned to total shit after 15,000 miles. At this point I sit on it and after sag I've only got like 2 inches of travel left! Being they are progressive springs, that means I only have the hardest part of the spring doing the damping so it feels like I'm getting punched in the head every time I go over a bump!

Got a shipping notice for the front end this morning so I'll probably see em in a few days! Woohoo!
