i accidentally started the bike with the fuel pump plugged in but without the fuel line hooked up and leaded fuel all over my newly painted covers. :(

Love it all. Like the single headlight, mirrors, clip on bars, exhaust. Very cool. I think it needs
something like a belly pan or something.

+1 to all of the above. She looks great, but some sort of belly pan may be in order.

I can't begin to imagine the stream of expletives following that gas leaking on your paint job :lol:

I wonder if Gary has any access to this stuff? I've been wanting to have a summer/track day outfit to wear.

That's the er-6n bodywork, not sure Gary will have that. Worth a shot, though!

It's made by French bodywork specialists Poly26 and was first manufactured for Kawasaki France, to supply for riders to use in the one make race series run by them a few years back, called the Coupe Kawasaki.

Thanks everyone! Yeah, I was pretty pissed when I accidentally ruined my paint job. Oh well, these things add character!

I would consider a belly pan, but the ones suggested dont look like they would work with my IXIL exhaust.

The brake pedal does hit the exhaust but where it touches is way more rear brake then any rider would want to apply anyway. So not a big deal.


I got a chance to finally ride at night with my projector set to high beam mode. What an improvement! Visibility is so much better.

Next on my list are to deal with the overflow and to mount and wire my new horn... (Wolo Bad Boy - http://www.wolo-mfg.com/air.htm). One question with those with custom coolant overflows: How do you know they work? Doesnt it have to be mounted above the radiator to ensure that it flows back in to the radiator?

i remember reading some where, that LSL's er6n placed the overflow near the battery cover.

not feeling how much the headlight sticks out, but if there was a way to have it in more it would remind me of a Cafe' bike! everything else is just SICK! .. good job man. :thumbup:

I purchased the rearsets from Giovanni Barca (sales@italianmotostyles.com) who was listed as an authorized re-seller on Valter's site. He was very easy to deal with and I would recommend him. The down side is that there was a 2 month waiting time, as they had to be custom ordered. They also weren't cheap. The correct part is PEK49 which includes the passenger assembly. The price was $574.99 + $22 for shipping.

Hope that helps!

For what it is worth, I really like having the sportier rear set while still retaining the ability to hold a passenger - not to many products offer this. Not to mention they also just look bad ass. :)

Cheers!
