R2-D2 Coolant Resevoir

Got my coolant reservoir back and its wrapped R2 style. Used a CO2 bottle, drilled and tapped, 90 degree brass elbows, some 1/4" clear plastic, and mounted beside the radiator. MY FAVORITE PART!!!!

Finished. Well almost.

Finished and riding. Everything is great so far. Only short rides and making sure there are no surprises. Super fun and noticeably lighter with out the extra plastics. Probably going to go with a flat black on the tank and plastics. Some type of Star Wars vinyl? For now, just going to ride and enjoy.

Bike has been amazing to ride. Quick and agile and able to keep up with my buddies much larger rides. Not in the straights but the twisties. I swapped out the shock for one from a 2012 Ninja and it is noticeably better. Also new Battleax tires that are a 90 profile for a bit more leg room.

Panniers.

A couple of ammo cans and some bracket fabrication, two very functional panniers. Extremely solid and absolutely not rattles or issues.
