    litre sport bikes look so mean when you can see the engine is bigger than the rider

    Chef, I hear ya mate. I understand where you're coming. I truly do. And for the most part, I'm attracted to a bit of animal in a bike. And I like a bike with some mongrel character. Not just a sh!theap with no fairings.

    What sh!ts me is that I tell a guy that removing fairings from a superbike, doesn't make it anything but a superbike with no fairings. That he should look at lowering the gearing by some sprocket mixes, and get the bike dyno'd and tuned so there is more punch down low and in the mid range, so it's better suited to it's street fighter role, and that a bikini fairing will help with high speed wind pressures.
    Somhow that makes me some kinda non purist wanker.

    Well I don't buy that purist bullsh!t. I ride for the bike. Not the bugs, wind, rain on my chest. They can have that!

    I'm done here.

    Its probably the same for other bikes, but the TL has some nice mod guides that others have done and share on the internet. There are a couple of people that make some billet aluminium parts and do group buys.

    I think if you're doing a streetfighter its more visually appealing and "tougher"' to have a v-twin (my opinion). To do a real good job its a lot of work though, and you might need to fabricate parts, as well as cut, sand, weld, etc your bike's frame. Do share progress pics if it goes ahead.
