I did the corrective work today.  Had to move those mounting collars, where they were taped, and paint those areas.  Anyhow, did the best I could.  Time to just let it dry for 3-5 days, mount and get back to riding.
Can't wait, miss my baby 😁

Hopefully this image makes sense.  There were no way to remove the mounting brackets.  And they could not be free to move around messing up wet paint or causing scratches.

 Impressed with your attention to detail. Good work.  :028:

 Should look great on the bike.
 Be sure to post lots of pics. I'm sure you will.  :001:

Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

Thanks 👍
Definitely will post photos.
Couple vids too.  Leo Vince Nero vs. S1 Clone sound 😁
And the finishing touch will be these Black Spark Matte Metallic Ermax belly fairings.  Going to be awesome 🙂

Well it's a done deal.  Finally.
Did the corrections of the corrections.
And that's the best I can do.  Time to leave well enough alone.  3 days of cure time will be Wednesday morning and get to mount the exhaust.
As you can see here, did all stock exhaust, heat shields, S1 clone, some bits n pieces on a LV Nero.
Now just the long wait.  This job kicked my butt and tried my patience lol.  Glad to be done.

Getting close.  I botched something and needed to fix it lol.  Rest of the pipes go on Saturday 😁
Really looks great.  Can't wait to turn that engine over and hear it.  My bagster seat is enroute from France too.

I even blasted and coated a clamp.  It works well.


As well as the aluminum spacer on Nero, link pipe and front of the can.

Thanks PJ 👍

Here is my bad Z









Got the cerakote dried finally and installed this morning.  Chinese stainless headers, LV Nero slip on, with Ermax matte Spark Black belly fairing.  I put high temp permatex in the joints to be safe.  Really only 1 pipe was a little loose.  I just fired her up for the first time in 5 weeks.  Let the heat burn off the wd-40 I used to remove all prints.  She sounds like a beast.  Going for a ride here after this OSU-Oregon game.
Only things left to do to this bike is add my custom red/black Bagster seat which should be here Monday.  And after 8k miles I'll be putting on a 520 conversion kit with Driven stock teeth sprockets and a black/gold RK 520 chain.  The Superbike conversion kit from 2wheeldynoworks.  And that's it.  My dream Z completed!
Thanks for all your support.

Agreed looks good.
I'm also developing a liking for big cans. 😉
