Fixed the bike myself under ~$500

  1. Had to replace half of the plastic on the bike, twisted fork and a few bent things.
    Kind of happy and proud of myself since it was the first bike "project" I've done.

    That would probably cost $3000 or so.
    Was lucky because I could get every single the part from TygaPerformance.

    Also while on that did a few minor mods:

    - smaller mirrors (original were to wide and I was could touch cars' mirrors while filtering)
    - carbon bits (including the exhaust cover)

    Will gladly tell more if anyone is interested.

    That's one of the situations I was glad to own a Thai made bike. Everything was cheap as.

  3. Thanks Aaron. Yeah, glad to be back on the bike too.
    Hope to come to Sat practice for the first time in a few months.
  4. Good work Dimitri, I bet it feels better knowing it's ready to ride again.
  5. Ohh, yeah. Not only it's ready, I'm already commuting on it :)
    But will be taking it easy for a while to make sure I haven't missed anything :)
