    First test drive on highway speed. Bike runs just fine. Took it gradually through speed brackets on roughed up road looking for trouble signs. None was detected, up to and included highway speed. Nice and stable. Braking well.

    Love how it come out with fork swap:



    Thinking about doing bit of body candy now. I have another tank that is pristine but wrong blue. Could get it custom painted with blue and red plus get fender and seat cowl done to match. Need to find a shop than can do pro job, not easy down here.

    Fuel Tank

    This is inside of fuel tank I source last year for cheap.

    Looks like new.

    Bad thing is dented and wrong blue color. Interior of original tank was severely corroded when I got the bike. I cleaned it out and use ethanol free gas. So far I have no issues, yet I want to have nice tank on it.

    So this looks to be my next project.

    I think I can deal with larger, shallow dent from inside. Not sure about Upper dent ....

    Nice bike dude. Love the look of the fork swap. You didn't think the rear shock needed an upgrade to match it?

    I've a K5 SV650 myself. I didn't go for the fork swap, I opted to go for a heavier fork spring and emulator upgrade instead. I also sourced a 2016 ZX14R rear shock that's a straight swap and the spring is bob-on for my weight.
