Looking great.
I like the headlight, just don't like the chrome trim on it.
It could use some type of radiator shroud, though maybe just a cut peice of someone else's busted fairing... not necesarilly the er6n ones. Maybe just the leading edge of a fairing.

For those that don't know, the U.S. only got the ER6N in 2009. And well, why not build the perfect bike exactly as you'd like it? I mean, some think the er6n radiator gaurds are too much, and the headlight is ugly... building your own lets you have what you like.

Oh, and if you don't like the hassle, just head over to customfighters.com. They can be harsh, but at least it's constructive.

I like the streetfighter look too.
You can get lots of nice parts from Thailand.

If I ever drop my bike and scratch my beautiful plastics, I might just do this! Looks freaking awesome and how is the no wind shield working out for ya?

That's pretty sick. You did a good job on it.

conversion update

total weight lost 37 lbs. enough up front that forks way too stiff now. ordered pre load adjustable fork caps(Slingshot racing) will set up to start slightly softer than stock at softest position. . Found a better looking smaller radiator overflow so right side of motor can now be seen.

I live north of Atlanta normal ride 30 miles highway 30-40 country roads
longer trips to mountains.
right now loss of fairing and wind protection NP. The ride is much quieter wind noise wise wo a fairing and the motor now sounds great intake,
The Akro is taking care of exhaust note.
The lighter weight is noticed every minute of every ride.
still finding final handlebar CFG. different bend black color.
