I might go with the headlights from a '09/'10 Yamaha R1. They seem to be perfect for being modded as airscoops. I've got a bid out for 50 euro's on a headlight+top fairing (asking price only 75e!)

Can't get anything newer.

I was looking at a FZR400 with OEM projectors, and using the area below for a scoop.
I've just started riding the GTS again, and it'll be changing

The old or the new model? (two round eyes or one big projector)

I've made my bid on this. Hopefully i'll be able to modify these and use the black parts left and right as air intakes.. or completely fail and use something else :+

I've just won this ebay auction, will post results. I'm not sure about the quality, but $8.99 is spare change.

Pegs are on their way, the shop even sent me a picture of the package:

Pegs were bought at http://www.areyourshop.com. They also list lowering brackets for Yamaha pegs, like these. I haven't got any use for them, but some of the less sporty riders will be happy with them for sure!

Edit:

oeh! Interesting.. check out this link.. Looks like less then 10 dollars (plus 8 dollar shipping) for four small air filters. Anyone know the needed diameter?

Throttle body outer diameter

Cyber, the outer bodies are 42mm diameter, 34.6mm internal.

PS 42mm is slightly bigger than 1 5/8" in old money. :D

Thanks for the info! Now i'll have to decide what i'll do..

Meanwhile the pegs have arrived! Will make some pictures tonight.

They look awesome, but i'm not too sure about the quality.. well, it's only 7 euros :P

I really should work more on the bike..

Anyway, the pegs I talked about earlier arrived, but are such bad quality that i won't mount them. The aluminium is really porous, so I don't trust them to hold my weight.. I will search for some others, so don't spend your money on this Singapore made sh*t.

In other news: i've got a new house! I'll get the key this monday, and will probably move within a month. It's got a good storage space so we can build a good GTS spare-parts stock over there. After I've moved I will start working on the GTS more often :)

Hehe, I know it's not an ideal place to work, but we just have to manage. I've cleaned everything up a couple of weeks ago so there's a bit more room, and we should be able to move all the parts etc. to my storage unit soon, so we have much more room :)

Good news! Within two weeks i'll have a nice garagebox in my apartmentbuilding, so I can start working on the bike for real! No more freezing rain while trying to fiddle with stuff, and more than enough space for two bikes and loads of spareparts and tools!

As soon as I have the keys i'll post some pictures :)
