My Motorcycle Build Thread

If this shouldn't go here, let me know.

I picked up my Hawk in Feb 08, and Im sad to say, it sat in the garage until March of 2009.

When I bought it:







8-30-2009

So far:
-Bar end mirrors
-Woodcraft rearsets
-SV fuel pump
-Black keyless fuel cap
-Chopped Scorpion muffler
-Monoposto seat cover
-Carefully removed the TBR stickers from the seat cowl
-RC51 passenger pegs
-Removed those springy things that cover the rad hoses
-New spark plugs, pods, and cleaned the sludge out of the carbs
-Removed the nasty red tubing









And for your viewing pleasure:



3-6-2010

I finally pulled the Hawk out of the operating room (garage) this afternoon. Its still not ridable, but its getting there.









4-11-2010

I had to buy a new swingarm because my damn drive flange wouldn't pop off the spindle. It wasn't that big of a deal and I sourced one right away for very little dough.

5-28-2010

Well, originally I was going to run my Technomagnesio wheel, but I cant bring myself to paint it and I dont want white wheels. Not only that, this wheel matches the CBR front wheel pretty damn nicely.





I still need to paint the wheel, but Im ecstatic about it.

So Far:
-Bar end mirrors
-Woodcraft rearsets
-SV fuel pump
-Black keyless fuel cap
-Chopped Scorpion muffler
-Monoposto seat cover
-Carefully removed the TBR stickers from the seat cowl
-RC51 passenger pegs
-Removed those springy things that cover the rad hoses
-New spark plugs, pods, and cleaned the sludge out of the carbs
-Removed the nasty red tubing
-2007 CBR600RR front end with Galfer Wave rotors and pads
-Motion-Pro throttle and clutch cables
-D.I.D. 525 o-ring chain
-JT 16 tooth front sprocket
-Vortex 46 tooth rear aluminum sprocket
-Thru Swing-arm brake line kit
-Ducati 916 rear wheel with modified swingarm
-Durbahn tire hugger
-Fabitappi CF front sprocket cover and rear guard
-Fox Twin Clicker rear shock
-BTT custom rear brake reservoir (not pictured)

I ordered a set of Dunlop Qualifier Sportmax Q2s last night. I still need to finish wiring up the new controls and gauge cluster, along with figuring out what Im going to do for a headlight, finish mounting my bar end mirrors, install the chain, get new fork springs, bleed the brake system, adjust the rear suspension, do an oil change and finally ride the damn thing again.

Next winter I plan on tearing it down again, possibly installing my race fairings, definitely paint (or powdercoat) the frame and swingarm black, install my CBR600F2 fuel tank, and decide what to do for my tail section. I will probably buy the new Two Brothers Racing low-mount exhaust they just came out with to show off the rear wheel a bit more.

Thanks for looking!

Neat project. Keep up the good work!

Are you going to go full fairing or leave it partially naked?

Thanks. Once I get the new tank and tail on Ill make my decision. This Hawk is hot without the fairing.



Hes running the stock tank, but thats the same tail section Im going to run. Its a really comfortable seat and it fits my CBR tank very nicely. I may just bite the bullet and install it this summer instead of waiting for the winter.

I finally installed the chain and started to clean up the fuel system. Then I broke my fuel pump. It was only $7, so I feel as though I got my monies worth.

Yea Im still on the fence about it. Plus Ill have to drill into the frame to secure the mounts. Im not sure if Ive got the balls to do it. I will get a windscreen for it though. Probably off a Buell.

Ladies, yes. Motorcycles? Not so much for me.

I havent been on here in awhile. I havent done much work to the Hawk either, but I did pick up a new bike two weeks ago







Its a 2008 Jet Black Triumph Daytona 675. Ive been in love with this bike for awhile now, and I finally had the opportunity to own one and I couldnt pass it up. It has just over 4900 miles on it. Nearly stock save a CW fender eliminator, Woodcraft sliders and Stompgrip tank pads. I got it for $5200

My first batch of mods were simple cheap things. I painted the exhaust end cap black and trimmed the front turn signals down.







But I wasnt too thrilled with the turn signals so I picked up a set of Protons. Im very glad I did because those things look amazing and are BRIGHT. Even in daylight which absolutely surprised me.







I know the windscreen isnt mounted in those pics. I ordered a Zero Gravity double bubble and when it came in it was cracked. My back has been hurting so I wasnt planning on riding anyway so I didnt put the old one back on.

I also ripped off the Stompgrips because I picked up a set of Techspec tank pads. Theyre not mounted yet because Im waiting for my detailing supplies to come in so I can do a full paint correction. The tank is pretty scuffed/swirled.

I also picked up a 4500k HID kit as suggested by the guys on the Triumph forum and I am honestly very dissapointed. The light output of the stock headlight unit is horrible. Ill be doing a retrofit VERY soon.

Parts Installed or On Order:
-Proton front turn signals wired to strobe
-Painted muffler end cap
-APE manual cam chain tensioner
-Techspec tank pads
-Zero Gravity Double Bubble light smoke windscreen
-Skidmarx rear hugger
-Scorpio SR-I900 alarm

I joined a groupbuy for rear suspension correction plates. I hope we get enough people for them. They help the rear end stay planted over rough pavement. Everyone that was on the last group buy absolutely loves them.

I dont have any other big ticket items planned for the bike. I do plan on doing some exhaust work and tuning it (btw, TuneECU is an awesome free program to tune Triumphs, all you need is a USB to OBD cable). I also plan on painting the engine covers black and when I need new tires Im probably going to paint the wheels dark red just to stand out a bit.

But the Hawk project isnt going to be cast-away to the corner of the garage. Ive purchased some interesting parts for it and having another bike to ride allows me to take my time on the Hawk and let my mind run wild with it.
