Thanks for the nice compliments, guys!

KJ - yea, they have it listed, but not actually out yet. I've been calling PWR every 2-3 weeks for the past year or so - they're really dragging their feet on this one.

Awesome bike man! Looks great, but have you looked at any of the SM specific shorty front fenders like at motostrano? Dope stuff for sure!

EDIT: check that , maybe that is a shorty, either way it gives me a chubbie.

Yeah, that's what I figured. It's stupid they list stuff so far in advance.

TJ - I tried several SM fenders, but all the yellow ones were the wrong shade - they're more neon yellow to match the RMZ's. That's why I just cut down the stocker that came with the Hurricane kit.

SXP - The one in front is a radiator catch can from APA - it catches any coolant that overflows, and then returns it when the motor cools. The smaller rectangular box is the oil breather box / catch can from Graves Yamaha - it capture the oil from the valve cover and returns it to the motor via a one way valve by way of the fitting tapped into the ignition cover cap.

Again thanks for all the compliments, guys - it's been a really fun project, but I think it's even more fun actually getting to ride it now!
