California Naked Fighter

A few months back I bought a stock 2007 non-runner with the intention of making it my project bike. The bike is now running and maintenance has been done, many thanks to board members help on the tech forum. Originally I was going to go the cafe route but it looks like it will most likely fall between the category of naked and street fighter, hence the name.

This is my first post in which I'll be documenting the progress of my project. I will avoid reaching out for help here (i'll post separately on the tech board) so I can focus on completed modifications and installations. Wish me luck!

Here are the "before" photos after I got it home:

Coilpack conversion

Since the bike will be pretty much naked I decided to ditch the ignition coils and mounting brackets for a cleaner look. I paid $28 for a pair of used coil packs and $9.95 for the wiring harness on Ebay.

It was a pretty simple swap, just involved a little soldering for the wiring and had to drill out the spot weld for the mounting bracket. After that I just cleaned up the metal that used to be covered up by the mounting bracket sprayed and it with gloss black spray paint.

1st official mod completed!

Naked-er

I've been spending some time on cleaning up the body lately, almost done. Only thing left to trim will be the front portion of the rear fender then I'll move on to the rear frame section.

Here's an update with photos:
-covered up the tank screw holes
-trimmed the front fender
-removed back portion of rear fender
-removed rear seat latch assembly
-trimmed side covers/fairings
-trimmed saddle (will clean it up more once the tail light & seat fabric arrive)

Don't mind the zip tie & Home Depot'd lighting mounts I'm trying to keep it street legal throughout the process even if it's a little scary looking

Next on the list will be fitting the tail light, fastening down the saddle, and cutting the rear frame section. Oh and putting some plastic goods up for sale to aid the continued economic burden

On a side note, I've become rather eager to weigh this thing once I'm done. All the stuff I've removed from the bike seems to be adding up much more than I would have expected.
