    I fitted Progrip 714 grips and love them. Put them on my DRZ too.

    Well, I had to cut a bit from the side panels to clear the wider tank and fuel taps, but it's finally all in place and I'm happy. I'll fit the chrome headlight over the winter as that will involve faffing about with wiring.

    Regarding Grips and Damper

    IMAG0002.jpg

    Got a newer phone with a better camera
    Foam grips with larger diameter Installed Many years ago .
    And dampers at the end.
    It is working very well for me ..
    I get some criticism for the oversized mirror. It appears larger in the Photo
    But it also works very well out on the Road

    Nighthog, a very nice bike indeed! It retains the spirit of the XS but with a nice modern trim to it. In fact your design looks timeless. When Yamaha made their retro model they should have spoken to you first :bike:.

    Well folks, you're all very kind. I think it looks pretty good, but then I'm biased!
    It's now wearing a Motolanna chainguard, and after I've fitted the billet (Motolanna again) headlight brackets and new chrome headlight over the winter I think I'm pretty much there as far as cosmetics are concerned.

    I'm happy :D

    Your bike truly is very very pretty Cliff and in my view, criticism from people who are NOT riding my bike (or at least, the same bike that I am riding) isn't worth a pinch of coonsh!t.

    You only have to please the person staring back at you when you are shaving.
