    Hello everyone.

    For starters I'm happy with the performance of my Dragster 180 so I won't do any mechanical modifications just yet.
    I got some carbon fiber side panels for it and decided to do some matt black stickers. The scooter's look are pretty fancy so I decided to for something not so eye catching.

    What do you think of it..?

    Carbon looks good, I personally would of picked a different color for the stickers so they stand out more.

    Where did you find the carbon panels for it?

    I like the look

    PM tuning makes them... I know fitment will be quite some work but I also liked the look.

    Love these bikes, looking forward to any updates. How far will the visual mods go? Is the frame staying blue?

    I stripped and cleaned it.
    The frame will stay as is for now. It doesn't have any rust or any marks so don't want to sandblast it just yet.

    I didn't remove the engine cause the silent block is broken and I haven't received the replacement part yet.

    I fitted front and rear Paioli Corsa shocks, sent a set of wheels for paint to a specialist.
    I fitted a LED taillight with integrated flash flights. I installed a Koso LED flash unit.
    I will completely remove the stock rear flash lights and will install LED bulbs to the front flash.
    I will fit some carbon fiber bits on it.
    Carbon will be the side panels at the top, front and rear mudguard, front brake air intake and expansion tank cover.
    I can't find the front panel in carbon.
    PM Tuning said it will take 4-6 weeks but they told me the same in early August.
    Any way I will start with what I have and see from there.

    Only reason I asked about the frame was that if it was painted yellow to match the springs, you bike would be black, silver and yellow which would be a good match. Whatever you do, I look forward to the updates, hopefully the parts don't take as long as they say!

    Well the springs on the new shock absorbers are white.
    Will keep it as is for now, if I don't like will change it later.

    This the Dragster now!
    I don't have yet the front panel.

    It was quite some process to fit them.
    Still they are not perfectly fitted ... PM Tuning did a lousy job! But they look fantastically on the bike!

    Yeah that it very nice. Love the shock too, going to look stunning when it's finished.

    Wow.. That's gorgeous!!!!!
    May I ask how much did that cost you?
    I have a friend/customer who asked me the same about his GSXR 1000.

    Thank you

    I honestly can't remember as I got the bits from ebay and from some other sources over a period of time, it wasn't massively expensive but it's also not the cheapest thing to do

    The previous owner painted the engine case black, the paint is already chipping away plus I don't want the plastic cover...
    [​IMG]

    I removed the cover to inspect the metal case and to my surprise it looks like it's been sand blasted!

    I have a spare inlet scoop and I got a tube to assemble it temporarily..

    I haven't decided what to do with the engine cover.. Paint it black, polish it.... Don't know.

    I'm open to suggestions.
    I'd love to hear what you guys think.

    Dark silver. Did one on an sr125 last year, looks nice. And not your typical colour.

    Thank you...
    I was thinking dark chrome... to lighten up the black scheme.
