WOW - looks like you've been busy - I'm sure all that investment will be worth it once it's ready to ride.
Look forward to seeing the finished bike.

Went for a long ride yesterday and ended up coming home in the dark. During my ride, the plate light went out, so I installed a new LED plate light instead of the regular type (non LED) that kept going out due to vibrations. First one I got at autozone, this one I got here :http://www.cyclegear...ight/web1006860

It only had sticky tape for mounting and I didnt want to ever have to worry about this issue again, so I may have gone overboard for such a small item, but It's definately not going to fall off or go out on me again. I managed to drill a hole through it and mounted it to the old one's bracket with a screw. The bracket is then screwed to the fender. If the glued screws fail, the zip tie should keep it in place.

'yes osifer, i got a plate light' :bonk:

Super nice job on the white out. I have a 2007 WR that is all white also. Love the look. What did you do to your head light shell? Is that paint? Also to the air box cover - how did you get that white?

How did you make the home made white graphics? I would love to do that also. Where did you get the material? It looks non home made quality.

I took some printer paper, taped it very tight and flat to the area's i wanted to cover, then i took a pencil and shaded

around the edges to see where i needed to cut the shapes.

The pencil should leave a much darker shade or even a line down where youll want to cut

I then cut out the printer paper with scissors, layed it back on the part i wanted to cover and trimmed a little bit to make it fit properly.

I took that paper shape and taped it to a universal number plate background and cut out the graphic with an exacto knife on a work table for more rounded edges
(scissors would also work fine though). http://www.motorcycl...WT.ac=SLIsearch

simple as that, just takes time and patience, Be forwarned that you will most definitely be crumpling up paper and throwing it at your bike...

For the swingarm I had to use a larger piece of paper i found laying around...

Also, after you have created one blank and cut out a graphic for one side of the bike, just flip it over and lay it down on the graphic for a mirror image of the other side.
(wont work for the airbox though, as both sides are different)
