chin spoiler

Nice bike! How do you like the chin spoiler? Do you have to remove it to change to oil filter and does it remove easily?

yes you have to remove it to change oil and it just 5 bolts that hold it on. since i only change the oil 2 times a year its not too bad but if i was one to put on tons of miles it would probroly get old. but the new england weather doesnt allow for too many miles...i get what i can though....5000 - 6000 a year

i actually painted the whole bike ..is dupont candy raspberry over pot of gold....and id say all the suppliesto paint it cost somewhere around $300...but alot of that is the raspberry candy as it was like $70 just for that an i only used 2 oz of it ...mixed it the clear but they sell it by the pint ....so ive got extra for touch ups or someday id like to but the fat tire kit on so ill have everything then to paint the new rear fender

Omg

My Gawd, that is one beautiful bike. You have done alot of upgrades with accessories that not everyone uses. Well, maybe the kury grips :) But in all seriousness, that is probally the best looking custom I have seen in a long time. I love that color and if you were closer, I would be asking how much to paint mine.

How did you come across some of those parts you used. I have never heard much of of irate customs or adjure. Those are what set you apart.

hey thanks snowdust for the compliments....irate customs does most of their business on ebay....great company they have many different styles of radiator and regulater cover for many different bikes, and they are always improving on there stuff. Adjure has many different styles of headlight and signals for motorcycles as well as corvetes and other cars as well. their web site is www.adjureinc.com you can get a free catalog from them via their website.
