Here she is. I am waiting on the rest of the bodywork to get back from the shop.
1995 CBR 600 F3. Will be racing in WERA N FL region and CCS SE region.
Traxxion forks, Ohlins shock, K&N, Frame sliders, will be shod with 207/208s after this weekend, rear set relocater plates, jetted and has a M4 pipe. Overall she is mostly stock. Will be looking at several more changes a high pipe and real rear sets before too long.

Sweet! Looks like those frame sliders will double as excellent "highway pegs" for long straights.

Looks sweet!

You might want to rethink the shock resevoir location. I've seen a few times those rear peg brackets snap and AWAY the resevoir goes.

I relocated mine to the rear end of the pilot subframe (on a gixxer), underneath the tail section (where I still have access to it) and out of harms way.

Luckily I did that, cuz the bike fell over top of the bracket a couple times, once so hard, let it be known, I now have extra ground clearance at the exhaust.

Dude, killer tip. What I would really like to do is buy my buddies Ohlins shock with attached resevoir and get rid of the present. But until the $ flow increases, I will keep what I have. I will definately look for a different place to mount it though.

I wish yall could see the rims better. At first I thought they were dark purple. But when I washed it one day the light caught the paint. The rims are VERY chameleon purple and blue. Actually look super ghetto in a good way.

Those are actually for those 24-hour endurance races. You'll last much longer than those OTHER guys.
