RC8R Streetfighter

Postby tripoddave » Sat May 18, 2013 10:46 pm

If I was writing a definition of what I want the new SD to be it would, essentially, be an RC8R with no fairing and flat bars.
So I'm going down the streetfighter route with my RC8R.
I don't think it's going to prove to be too expensive.
I've fitted a Sigma slipper clutch and an Akrapovic Evo4 exhaust and I will order a top yoke and bar conversion from Triplespeed in Germany as soon as they email me with a price.
My plan is to:
fit flat bars
remove bodywork
fit mini indicators (fork mounted at the front)
fit tail tidy
modify a SD 'chin' spoiler to fit
new headlight cluster with HID conversion
bar mounted mirrors
short brake and clutch levers
I'm going to base the initial incarnation on Triplespeed's own conversion:

Sadly, no. The top yoke is going to take 2 weeks.
Once I get that installed and the flat bars on it should be a 4 to 6 week process to get everything together
Hopefully in full effect for the Crash Fest.
