Banky's Build Thread (Birth of Trash Panda)

I keep getting told to do a build thread for my bike, even though I don't really feel its anything out of the ordinary. So here we go!

Brand new, on my way home with only 20 miles on the dash, and mother nature calls.......:icon_eek:

I have very limited experience with racing bodywork so I can't "review" it but it all went together like it should and some of it was a little tough to get on but the bike is MUCH smaller now IMO, the side pannels HUG all the wiring and ecu bracket and all the fuses on the other side, but I didn't have to modify ANYTHING on the bike, I will do a little trimming here and there when I get the time, but none of it is urgent.

Last thing I am waiting on is the new Matte Grey tank, should be here Monday.

It'll get there. People are too gaga over the 15/16 bikes to care about ours.

Finally got around to putting the new Tank on, I LOVE the matte grey color! And it wont be so easy to scratch LOL

Swapped over the grippers, the side panels and the Fuel cap + Base.

Now to get the fork and rear shock situated......

Those tires are going to be fine for your next trackday. I'd get another rear and mount it on your spare rim for a two day event. This way no worries for the second day, just swap and go. Q3's are fine for one day from what I've seen, just give them a solid lap or two before pushing into the corners.

Going to paint the fenders?
I will paint the fairings but prob not the fender, its CF and pretty.....

I will get everything together and do a trackday or two, then when I am sure I don't need to do anymore trimming or whatever I will have our paint guy at work do them for me.

Hell, I thought about sticker bombing this whole bike!

Yeah..... about that......

My current rear has a nice "street" spot aka flat spot on it.... I probably need two rears if I go that route. But without warmers its prob still my best option.

Looking good...got some nice stuff going on there. Might want to look at some Dzus fasteners for the bodywork just to make it easier to work with.

And if you want to keep the kick stand (does kinda come in handy sometimes) you could always trim the belly pan. That's what I did with my Armour Bodies kit.

Thanks man, I'm over here just trying to live the dream!
I have a spare fastener kit on the way.... They are 1/4 turn fasteners but they don't have the hand key, which i like....... Live and learn.

I probably won't mod the bellypan for the kickstand at this point, I plan on getting my race license this fall or next spring so I can't have it on anyways.....

Glad you understood the question correctly, I don't know if it was auto correct or me without coffee that wrote fenders instead of fairings.

You can even vinyl wrap it.
