Hopefully one day I will be done changing things on the Bike, but every day there's something else I want to do. Hopefully this winter I'll get the Paint and the Wheels done. I like the way the decals look on the Bike, but I want something a bit more wild. As far as mods, I have a JSD-3 (new edition), Cobra Dragsters (with Baffles in, and still very loud), Cobra FI 2000, Kury Flame grips, Golf club mirrors, the billet cover plate, removed all reflectors badges and rear plastic, removed rear signal lights and replaced with a license plate that had the blinkers and brake lights in one cool looking piece, added some chrome to the radiator cover (thanks to some automotive door and fender molding, it actually looks the part) changed front signal lights (to something smaller and nicer), Kury rear brake cover, Intake plate with a Kury Twin Velocity Plus kit (chopped up to fit, I had to take a metal cutting saw to it, and remove some pieces off the rear of the cover, not easy to do since they cost $250 a piece, and once you cut there's no going back) but I liked the way these Air kits looked, so I took a chance, and I'm very happy with the outcome. I like the way that the V shape of the Air cleaners compliment the V twin of the bike. So here it is, I would like to know what you guys think. 8)

I finally found my mirrors!!! Man I love those. Where did you get them? Oh, that airbox looks pretty good on the DLP back plate too. The bottom 2 pics... that's with the stock intake right?

2 pics are before the Air kit, but I just wanted to show the decal kit on the tank and fender, and yes the air kit is done on both sides, I'll post a pic from the other side. The mirrors I got from Tejasthumpcycles.com but be careful, since they always seem to send something scratched (but they do replace it, I ordered once before and I had to return it due to some damage also) I'm sure you can find these mirrors in many other catalogs and websites. JP Cycles I think has them. good luck.

Yes it is, belive me when I tell you that it looks like its meant to be that way, I doesn't look cheap, but it is, and it gives it a finished look. I saw a chrome cover on ebay for $168 mine cost just $6.95 and I have molding left over just in case some of it gets damaged, (but I've had it on all Summer and it still looks good) So I'll use the extra $161 for something else.

Looks awesome...Is there any way to do away with the black attachments behind the filters or maybe trim them so they're not so profound?

Dang, you're right....

Yeah it does look like a flat spot in the rim, but is probably a pixellation issue with a low resolution picture.
I might think that if the pics were both from the same spot, if it wasn't seen from two different angles. The fact that the deformity is present in both angles, and that the deformity looks the same kinda rules out the resolution/pixellation theory.

Yes, both rims (front and rear) are dented on the right side from a pot hole. Thats why I'm sending them out in a couple of weeks to get repaired and chromed. There's a small vibration at high speed but otherwise you don't notice it much (only visually). :(

Best air-cleaners I've seen!Will SOME enterprising co. please make complete, bolt-on kit with these cool, perfect lookin' covers. I Think alot of us would be willing to reasonably pony-up for a good quality bolt-on!

Very nice.  :bigthumbsup:

I also used the chrome door moulding on my radiator, but I only did the horizontal bars. Now that I've seen how good yours looks though, I think I'm going to use some of my leftover pieces to do the verticals. I also used that stuff on my tank seam.

Where did you get the custom graphics?

You would definitely be ponying up some dough... since the covers alone are over $200 each according to AMERRAED. You mention a quality bolt on... have you seen DLPs Big Air? That is a direct bolt-on kit that is nothing but high quality. Of course it isn't gonna let you use these covers. The issue with our bikes is you got two sides to do, and if you don't want the back plate to be the rounded triangle, then that requires making an entirely new back plate... like Extreme Revolution has done with their air kit. That is gonna mean bigger bucks because each side is different on the back because of the radiator hose on the left side. It would be much cheaper to do if you could just make a single design and have it fit both sides, but that isn't the case on the 109.

Great work ! Everything looks good .... I purchased those same mirrors on Ebay for 37.99 +14 shipping . One online store wanted 46.99 each + 8.00 shipping and didn't include mounting hardware which usually sells for 9.99 from Kury.

I'm tracking my shipment...I should have Tues.

Chrome dem wheels !
