My Ninja Rebuilt by myself

I repaired all the plastics using ABS cement. I painted with Krylon ($3.86 a can at Walmart).
I bought a set of Ebay clip-ons with a lot of adjust ability. I had a master cylinder and clutch perch with new shorty adjustable levers I had bought for my Yamaha. I believe they came off an ER6-N. I have a basket case 2004 ninja I robbed the rearset brackets off of.
And here she is:

Thanks, it is a 20' or so paint job though. That was only way I could get it back on the road by the time I was healed enough to be back on the road.

You did a lot of nice work to get that in shape again, congratulations!

If you decide you want the paint to look better close-up, sand it a little with some 400 grit wet and dry, and put a coat of Spraymax 2K on it. It's a very tough 2-part clear that comes in a spray can with a push button on the bottom to mix the two parts. You'd need at least two cans at a bit over $20 per can.

Thanks. If I want to have the paint look better I will probably go ahead and buy a Chinese fairing set. The plastic work is about a 20' job in some places also. There were a total of three pieces missing that I just put duct tape on backside and started pouring thin layers of ABS cement

Thanks. That's the way I feel about it for sure. I don't trust any of the shops around here, so I just learn how to do everything myself.

I wanted to mention that I really like the clip-on's that I got and I absolutely love the way she handles with the one inch drop in the front. And yes I have already maxed her out (105 on speedo so about 95) and no instability at high speed straight-line

About three years. My first bike was the 92 Yamaha Seca II. Not that much experience, but in a little over two and half years I put about 9500 miles on the Seca II

That's good to hear. I wondered when you said you ran off a ramp and crashed. Take it easy on the top speed runs though. You really should go to a local track for the high speed fun.

I intend to,that top speed run was made at 2:00am on a long stretch of four lane. I wanted to be sure after dropping the front an inch it didn't make the bike twitchy or anything
