well wataya know, my first piccy post, time too celebrate,
over 74 thou kays, on original brown connecta, started 3rd kick after i remembered to use the the choky thing, sat for over 2 years, piece of cake, threw in a set of plugs, priced a kn airy filter, 110 bucks, got the original for 30, new oil dent out of tank, previous onwer low sided her, so i replaced fairing and bits, rattle can mismatch but she'll do for now, looking for mirrors and away we go, allen key sump bolt was a pain, rounded off, filter in bottom of oil tank cleaned, not needed, giag was on -1 now 1, dont like the three big yellow wires between the barrels, looks like a hot place to live, new supercheap indicators didnt work till i threw on an old style 21watt aluminium flasher, looks like it was off my old hg,

looks good man... you should really put some tail lights in that sucker though :P
@gravelrash. Looks really cool with the new tail. Mé wants too.
Beautifully done tail. Was it much work to get it done? Looks factory - very nice.

Here are a few photos of my bike I took this week. My list of mods is nearing the end. Just need some OZ wheels now. I hit 44,000 miles on my ride yesterday.
oh I like your thinking!! I made a jump to my factory this spring, and sometimes wonder if I should have looked at tuonos..
Ah well, cant say I dont love the bike.
Best of luck with what you do
You have a beautiful bike, well maintained with tasteful performance minded upgrades. Alot of your info (and welding) got my first gen where it is now (and in my buddies garage)
Thanks Tony. Gabro mentioned that he has the ECU of the second Gen bikes cracked now, so he should soon be able to start offering fuel and ignition maps for 04-09 RSV and 06-11 Tuonos, I hope. With that in mind a nice red/white Second Gen Tuono factory would be interesting too.
