Island K
« on: September 14, 2018, 07:40:13 PM »
Hello, new member here just wanted to say hi.

Bought my first K in March, bike was real rough when I bought it. So, I stripped it to bare bones and been playing with it ever since. Still trying to figure out some hiccups, but love riding the bike, so all good.

Some more pictures would be nice. Your dashboard looks interesting, also curious as to how you mounted the seat.

For sure, Bought it as a stock bike in rough shape. Broke in down to frame and engine and back up again with some of the original, some from what I learned on forums, other ideas just came from seeing parts at bike shops. The GSXR front end was just cool!!!

I made the seat myself as I didn't like anything I saw, its marine vinyl and is super comfy with the gel foam. The idea of using bullet hinges to fix it to the frame came to me later. As I relocated my fuse box to the storage box, and was tired of unbolting the seat to get at it.  :giggles

I went with the china gauge as its my first year driving it and I want to work all the bugs out before buying something nice. I've changed a little more of the top triple since, but the layout is similar. Plus, I'm toying with the idea of installing an m-unit blue in the off season.  [ Invalid Attachment ]  [ Invalid Attachment ]
