Hi all, For the life of me I thought id started a thread about the modifications to my bike but I can't find that thread.
Anyway - I have a 2010 ER6nLABS(l stands for learner here in oz)

I have so far
Done a fork and brake swap from a 2012 z1000sx.
Done a swingarm swap from a Versys 2015.
Moved to a 6 inch rear wheel and 180 section rear tyre.
Ive added RSV racing rear sets,
Drag handlebars and
bar end mirrors and
made a custom headlight cowl from a ninja 300 screen.

Still to go 2010 R1 rear shock with custom spring rate,
custom tail section
let the pics do the talking ...

Good job :thumbup:

We need to see how the front looks asap :grin2:

Did you fit the exhaust can on a different angle?

Also, the rear indeed looks kinda chubby from certain angles so bring that custom tail section!

Yeah, i called it the Kardashian section in another thread lol...heres the front. Im not a fan of the shape of the cowl but its a prototype and it’ll change. Also the can is rotated. It fills the gap between the belly pan and the rear wheel better.

Wow, love the front as it is :surprise:

It looks really good and professional, very nice :smile2:

I am not a fan of the rotated can though, it looks awkward to me, maybe because of the TB VALE can I had fitted on my bike a few years ago. It looked amazing on my '06 as it was but anyway yours is a different can and different model bike.

Can't wait for the butt remodeling results, keep up the good work!

Great stuff!

Enjoy fitting the new parts, I expect feedback especially about the improvement in brake performance >:)

I never saw the need for a steering damper for our bike through the years but a nice addition anyway!

Have a look at the rake and trail for an er6 and then compare it to a Panigale .... That’s what I did and I quickly realised I should probably get one as I’ve also lowered the front of the bike so it turns better.
The stock brakes were doing the job but you can always improve so why not add something aesthetically better while I’m at it.

I only had a serious tank slapper just once but it was due to weird road surface undulations (I went to check afterwards because I was like wtf was that?) but it's a nice addition anyway especially since you are tinkering with the bike's geometry.

Rear shock is nearly finished just need some seals and bushes.
Waiting on some other brake components front and rear. Rear disk and front ABS ring.
Going for a 250mm rear disk with Nissin rear caliper from a Versys. The front as I said going with 330mm brembo discs just need that ring. Once the brakes are set up and working I’ll measure and buy the braided lines.
Also bought a bar with some rise in it. The drag bar is nice but I don’t like the visual mass that the z1 riser adds to the front of the bike.
More to come

Need to get the back shock on now and its functionally finished. Then i can start on the cosmetic side

Enough difference in brake performance to be worth it?
